Ice Weddings

Winter weddings are stunning and very, very popular. They come with some great ideas too, from ice bars to hot chocolate wedding favours. So here are some of our favourite ideas for ice weddings!

When picking your wedding venue, make sure it’s available for the dates you want; not all venues are open through the winter months, especially leading up to Christmas. However, you don’t necessarily have to work around the seasons to get your perfect ice wedding venue—consider a wedding abroad in snowy Greenland, underneath the amazing Northern Lights, or even a unique venue like the Ice Hotel.

Get your guests in on the fun by renting an ice rink for the evening, or take your significant other out on a mini moon.

A classic ice wedding is everything white and silver with clear glass and bright candlelight. Shades of gold or blue are also beautiful, and traditional winter plants include holly, berries, lavender, and deep red roses.

Add some WOW factor to your wedding decor with impressive ice sculptures and ice bars.

Get creative with your ice wedding drinks. Cocktail glasses decorated with edible glitter or desiccated coconut, slushies for adults and the kids, and DIY ice shot glasses are only some of the possibilities.

Add even more fun to your wedding reception with an ice cream bar, and colourful ice cubes and ice lollies made with edible flower petals. Grab a recipe for your own rock candy and coconut ice, and powder cupcakes with frosting and glaze them with syrup. It’s a DIY bride’s dream!

Finish off the perfect ice wedding with hot drinks and blankets for your guests throughout the reception. A hot chocolate and smores bar is the perfect pick-me-up, and a serving of some tasty cocoa and marshmallows makes a cute and inexpensive wedding favour.
