Ice sculptures can make for stunning, unique wedding centrepieces and popular talking points at a wedding ceremony and reception. They're striking, eye-catching, elegant and fun. In winter especially, they are a great alternative to chocolate fountains and floral centrepieces.

Ice Bars

Big nightclub and horse racing events will often feature complete ice bars as a functional centrepiece. But these can also be very effective at wedding receptions. Before you put down a deposit for an wedding ice sculpture, consult your reception location. It is a rare, but some will not allow ice sculptures, for various reasons. Check first to avoid any problems that could arise from this. If you want a complete ice bar at the reception keep in mind that they are bulky and need to be moved with care. Consider using a larger space but also remember that it will need to fit through the entranceway!

Wedding ice sculpture centrepiece designs

There are many common designs of wedding ice sculptures. These include swans, hearts and doves. But for something a little different consider designing something yourself. Be sure to match an ice sculpture to the overall theme of the wedding. We'd suggest taking a cherished photo or two to your sculptor and designing something together.

If your wedding is on a beach surrounded by sand, perhaps sea animals like dolphins or a seal would be appropriate. Alternatively if the wedding is a masquerade theme, why not a castle with a melted moat? Any idea you come up with for your wedding ice sculpture is sure to be unique and special.

If you're feeling patriotic. The classical Maple Leaf could be an option. Or for something a little out of the ordinary we've actually heard of some cases where Canadaian Brides have incorporated mini ice rinks at their wedding receptions. The beauty of using ice is that you can really shape anything.

Other uses for ice at your wedding

The best thing about using ice at your wedding is that ice centrepieces don't always have to be huge sculptures. Using Iceballs instead of traditional cubes is a cute addition to the table and will make each drink that much more memorable.
