6 ideas for personalizing your wedding with ice

Your wedding day is one of the biggest events that you will plan
in your life. The guests you invite are your family and friends, and
you want to be able to show them a part of yourselves in your wedding details. Don’t let your wedding become as generic as all those other typical weddings. Incorporating ice can add a personal touch, something that will be forever memorable!

There are hundreds of ways these ideas can be customized for you. Take a look and get inspired!

1. Themed Weddings
Do you have a specific theme for your wedding? In this example, the bride had a city theme, so we carved an ice sculpture with a skyline. We also matched the font style used in the bride’s Save the Date cards to match the names in the sculpture.

Here’s what the bride had to say:

Since we were getting married downtown in the Ohio State House, we really wanted to incorporate special touches that showed off the city of Columbus. Our table numbers featured artistic photos of landmarks and our favorite restaurants in mirrored frames. What really brought it all together was the stunning and whimsical ice sculpture designed and crafted by Rock on Ice. It featured the downtown Columbus skyline at night, our names hanging in the stars and was lit up in our wedding colors. My husband and I truly loved it and so did all
of our guests!

2. Freeze in Photos
We can freeze just about anything into your sculpture—that includes a photograph. Why not have your engagement photo incorporated into the sculpture? This option is becoming more popular, as the bride and groom want to have more uses for their photos.

3. Incorporate the Seasons
Are you looking for a way to bring the outside in and into your wedding? In this example, the bride and groom had a Fall theme, so the ice bar displayed pumpkins within the ice. In addition to an ice bar, they had their last name carved out in stacked pumpkins. Very unique!

5. Name and Initials
Having an ice sculpture with both of your names is a classic idea, but can still be unique. For this wedding, we carved an old time car that says “Just Married” along with their names. You can see the silhouette of the couple in the car window.

6. Interests or Hobbies
If you have a hobby or something you are both interested in, we can take that idea an transform it into ice.  This couple loved penguins, so we carved their names in a heart below two kissing penguins.

By incorporating your personal details—with ice, into your wedding, your family and friends will see a glimpse of who you are, and they will appreciate and remember your day just as much as you will!

An Ice Sculpture For Your Wedding: A Unique Idea

Looking for something unique and memorable for your wedding—and that’s cheaper than flowers—try an ice sculpture!

The average cost for flowers is $2,000*, but can increase dramatically if it’s off-season, or if you are choosing exotic flowers.

Why not try ice?  The average cost for an ice sculpture is $350, and will provide a much more dramatic effect than flowers. Can you remember the flowers at the last wedding you attended? Besides the bridal gown, an ice sculpture will be the most talked about item at your wedding—guaranteed!

Here are some unique ideas for incorporating ice into your wedding:

  • an ice sculpture as the main centerpiece for your wedding.
  • individual mini ice sculptures at each table—a true
    conversation piece.
  • an ice bar—drinks served to you…on ice!
  • an ice luge – guests will love having their favorite
    drink poured down the luge.
  • food displays—keep food chilled and fresh for your
    guest by displaying it on ice.
  • beverage towers or ice  bowls—keep your drinks
    cold all night.

Only ice can give you that dramatic impact! Choosing a unique ice sculpture for your wedding will create a lasting impression for you and your guests.

Below is a gallery of cool ideas that you can incorporate into your wedding. Rock On Ice can customize a beautiful ice sculpture just for your wedding.
