Intimate or large, a wedding in the mountains of Colorado is an event to savor. Brides have the opportunity to register at local stores for special gifts different from big city venues. It’s important for guests to know that their gift will be unique and also spark memories of the good times in the mountains for years to come. A welcome break from the rigors of wedding planning, an afternoon spent perusing the stores in Vail, Avon, Beaver Creek and Edwards is a perfect mother-daughter activity. Stores here in the mountains are always pleased to ship. Sending a one-of-a-kind antique armoire, basket or locally handmade pot is simple. Prices for these unique pieces compare favorably with contemporary items commonly found in every catalogue or lifestyle store. Just let your guests know that a special gift from the mountains would be most welcome and give them a list of the stores you have chosen in the valley.
