The idea of ice sculptures at a wedding have kind of become a thing of the past. When it comes to summer weddings, though, ice is more of a necessity than a splurge! But there’s more to ice than just the traditional cubes in a glass. Take a look at the types of
Ice Sculptures At Your Wedding…
An ice bar
This is an amazing idea if you’re serving cold food during the reception. An ice bar can be made in different sizes and can be engraved with your initials or an image of your choice. You can insert an ice luge for a creative way to serve icy cold drinks, too.
Can you image serving up cocktails on tables made of ice? Or offering guest seating made of ice and covered with protective fabric? Talk about making a statement!
Different from sculptures because they’re not three-dimensional, ice portraits are flat pieces of ice featuring a portrait. If you display it near your cake table it will make a dramatic statement piece.
Serve up your signature cocktail in glasses made of ice, or have a special ice cream dessert served in bowls made of ice. You’ll definitely WOW your guests!
Picture strands of perfectly clear globes of ice strung together and hung from the ceiling in a long cascade. This would make one of the most remarkable ceremony backdrops you’ve ever seen.
Your tables can boast unique centerpieces of ice vases carved into any shape you’d like. Chat with your florist about floral and décor options that would suit this particular ice creation.
A carving show
If you’re looking for some fun entertainment during your reception, hire ice carvers to come out and provide a demonstration. They can create a custom sculpture or one of the other ideas mentioned above. Keep in mind that you’ll need a large space with room for them to work.
