There are many accommodation options in the Fraser Valley. In addition to what we have listed here, Winter Park Resort has several hotels by the mountain, as well as many hotel and motel options in Winter Park (the town). For those really on a budget, there is (or at least there was) a hostel in Fraser.
Jon and Heather have also become fans of using the websites VRBO.com and AirBNB.com to find lodging on vacations. Offerings on those sites vary from private houses to private rooms in an owner-occupied house (kind of like a bed and breakfast...but kind of not ;-) ) The benefit of going that route is you'll usually have a kitchen (or at least have access to one).
We do encourage our guests to consider Devil's Thumb Ranch. After doing a little research, it looks like while rates are slightly higher at the Ranch, the added convenience of location and amenities is well worth it. DTR is a 10 minute drive off the main highway and about 15 minutes outside of Fraser, 20-25 outside of Winter Park.
Devil's Thumb Ranch offers a variety of lodging options from basic rooms (some with private bathrooms and some with shared bathrooms) in the Bunk House to hotel-like rooms in the Lodge to 1-4 bedroom cabins. We have blocked off an array of lodging choices for our guests, but encourage anyone considering staying at Devil's Thumb Ranch to reserve their rooms early. There will be one other wedding going on that weekend (plus some sort of corporate team-building/bonding whatever), so lodging could become more scarce as the date approaches. Guests at the Ranch will have access to a wide variety of activities and amenities including their very nice, heated pool & outdoor hot tub, sauna, yoga classes & fitness center, horseback riding, fly fishing, hiking, and the list goes on.
There are several larger cabins available which, when split among several people, becomes quite affordable! (if there are 2 people/bed in the cabins, the price is about the same as double occupancy in the Lodge) Heather is a fan of finding vacation lodging this way in particular. Always seems more comfortable to be staying in a house rather than a hotel room! Something to consider! Some of the cabins are also dog-friendly.
When making your reservations at Devil's Thumb Ranch, we recommend you contact Shelley Mattfeld, DTR's Group Reservations Manager, directly at 970-726-7015. Mention you are with the Jared/Lindbloom wedding. We do come with discounted rates! Also inform them if you are military...you come with even better discounts.

Snow Mountain Ranch is a part of the YMCA of the Rockies and is located just down Highway 40 from Devil's Thumb Ranch. The summer camp Heather was a camper at and later worked for (at total of 14 summers!) is located on the property. They also have a variety of lodging options from hotel-like rooms in their main lodge to more basic rooms that may include a queen bed & a mix of bunk beds (a great option for people wanting to save money and split a room with others!), to cabins & vacation homes (the difference mainly being vacation homes at SMR include a dishwasher, microwave, and TV. Sizes for both range from 2-4 bedrooms). There should be plenty of availability at SMR, but we still encourage people to book lodging as soon as they know they are coming. Amenities to guests include horseback riding, a swimming pool/sauna (no hot tub, though), a recreation center with rock climbing/bouldering, roller skating, & basketball, and miles of beautiful trails.
Snow Mountain Ranch is about 30 minutes from Devil's Thumb Ranch.
(Please note: We do NOT have any rooms blocked off at Snow Mountain Ranch. No need to mention you're with the Jared/Lindbloom party.)
