Ice Chapel Weddings – Are They Right For You?
Have you considered a unique destination wedding venue? You may have already considered ice chapel weddings as an option for you and your fiancé. But is it the best choice for you and your guests? Here’s the information you need to decide if ice chapel weddings are something you can get excited about.
First, it’s important to note that there are a limited number of locations that host ice chapel weddings; namely Canada, Sweden, Italy, Iceland and Finland. Of course, with a destination wedding, your guests and members of the wedding party have to travel, so they need to be prepared for that.
Fortunately, all of these destinations are easily accessible and relatively cheap when flying out of the UK, but be aware that you may need to help with the travel costs of some of your guests if necessary, and that some of them may just are unable to travel the required distance.
Baby, it’s cold inside
Ice chapel weddings take place in temporary structures that are literally carved out of the ice – then melt away when the spring thaw occurs. Although ice hotels do their best to keep all their guests comfortable, the temperature inside will necessarily be lower than what most people are used to.
If you’ve invited lots of elderly guests or family members, you’ll want to make them as comfortable as possible. Fortunately, most ice hotels offer warm accommodation and you don’t have to spend the night in a cold room. The chapel will be cool, but as long as your guests take advantage of the warm clothing provided by the hotel, they should be fine.
How about your wedding outfit? Although you can wear any type of clothing you like, most couples find it more comfortable to dress in long sleeves, hats and jackets. This is something to think about while shopping for a dress and tuxedo.
Pre and post wedding packages
Another thing to consider is the type of activities you and your fiancé enjoy. If you enjoy snow skiing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, sledding, or just snuggling up in front of a cozy fire with a hot drink, then you’re sure to enjoy ice chapel weddings booked in the dead of winter. However, if you’re more excited about hot afternoon walks on the beach, ice chapel weddings may not be the best choice.
Ice chapel weddings are a wonderful, unique way to exchange vows in an inspiring destination. While it’s ideal for some couples, it’s not always the best choice. Consider these points when thinking about booking an ice hotel for your wedding.
