Ice hotel Sweden offers couples the ultimate destination wedding. Situated in the tiny village of Jukkasjärvi, the ice hotel is located approximately 200 km north of the Arctic Circle on the Torne River in Sweden.
The hotel boasts more than 30,000 square feet of sheer wonder. Along with the ice chapel itself, you'll also want to visit the art exhibition hall, the cinema and world famous Absolut ice bar.
The ice chapel is created each year with the snow and ice supplied by the nearby Torne River. Each spring tons of ice is harvested from the river and stored in a production hall for use the following winter.
The magnificent chapel is utilized for traditional church services, christenings and weddings and then melts back into the river in the spring.
Weddings can take place in the chapel after the Christmas service until the end of April. For couples who reside in countries outside of Sweden, they must make a personal visit to the local tax office in Kiruna. The wedding coordinator at Icehotel can assist with more details.
Due to the limited season during which you can be married at the ice chapel, and the growing popularity of Icehotel Sweden, it is imperative to book well in advance – from several months to a couple of years.
When you are considering your wedding attire – think warmth. It is definitely possible to exchange vows wearing an incredible gown but you will likely also want to consider a fur cape and muff bouquet. Your groom may decide to wear long underwear beneath his tux.
Whenever a wedding is held outside your hometown a considerable amount of planning is required. Not only for the travel of you and your guests, but for the clothing, accommodations and documentation that is required. A professional bridal consultant can help with the local customs and traditions and work with you to create the magical, stress-free day of your dreams.
Getting married in northern Sweden during the winter months has another distinct advantage. There is no better time to experience one of the most spectacular and dramatic sights on the planet – the Northern Lights.
Be sure to also take advantage of unique Nordic winter activities such as dog-sledding or snow-shoeing. Your stay in Lapland and winter wedding at ice hotel Sweden will be a cherished lifetime memory.
