Winter wedding venues have been gathering popularity lately for a whole host of reasons. As summer wedding prices have gone through the roof and dates become less and less available people have begun looking for winter alternatives for their big day. Here are our top 3 venues from around the world for you to say ‘I do’ and make your day a little more unique.
The Swedish Ice Hotel (Jukkasjärvi, Sweden)
For a truly unforgettable winter wedding, why not try doing it with style in this Ice Hotel in Sweden. You can exchange your vows in the ice church. Here you will find walls and ceiling made entirely of snow, while the benches and the altar made of ice. You may think this is a cold option, but when you combine it with the reindeer skin rugs you will be warm beyond what you thought possible.
For the reception you will be delighted with traditional arctic cuisine prepared by a Michelin-trained chef, all served on ice tables with centrepieces with your names engraved in the ice. A truly magical experience. If you want a slightly warmer option at night than the ice carved bed wrapped in reindeer rugs, they also offer a warmer nordic chalet.
Rogner Bad Blumau (Styria, Austria)
For a winter wedding which will guarantee to relax you as well as delight why not think about think about booking the Rogner Bad Blumau and Spa in Austria. To give you and your guests a playground of a venue fully equipped with everything you need to feel winter wonderful. You can enjoy gourmet food with a backdrop of snowy hills and colourful buildings that are picture perfect for that extra special wedding day portrait photo.
The always warm outdoor pool fed by a volcanic spring allows you to relax before or after the wedding or you snuggle up next to a roaring fire. All of this gives you a stress-free wedding with a real difference.
Llao Llao Hotel & Resort (Bariloche, Argentina)
This historic 1940s Patagonian lodge offers the perfect setting for dreamy winter weddings. Llao Llao Hotel and Resort is nestled in the foothills of the Andes and resembles a grand mountain lodge. Aside from the breathtaking views of Lake Moreno and Mount Tronador, it’s also a skier’s paradise — Mount Catedral’s world-famous ski hills are just 40 minutes away.
After holding your ceremony and reception in one of the resort’s stunning ballrooms, you and all your guests can hit the snowy slopes! Just remember: in the Southern Hemisphere, the winter season runs from June to August.
