Indian Wedding Ice Sculptures
Your extravagant and exquisite Indian wedding decor simply isn’t complete without a jaw-dropping ice sculpture guests will be talking about for months to come!
Ice sculpting dates back over 100 years and has become a staple artistic medium for weddings because of both its wow factor and its utility in helping keep things cold. For Indian weddings specifically that are already infused with so much artistry and glamour, ice sculptures add a frosted touch of drama and creativity.
There are multiple ways to utilize ice sculptures in your wedding including as an artistic focal point at your reception, as the bar itself, as a serving vessel for drinks or food at your cocktail hour, or as shot glasses. Some couples even choose to incorporate ice sculptures into their tablescapes and centerpieces commissioning works like glistening handcrafted ice chandeliers that mimic crystal. Wedding ice sculptures are also becoming increasingly popular, especially when they are used as a foundation for a raw bar with oysters and shrimp or to serve caviar, liquor, sorbet, and more.
Ice sculptures for weddings cost anywhere from around $50 for a small tabletop sculpture, like an ice vase, to $5,000 for a full-sized ice bar. Packages may vary depending on the amount of ice used, the size and complexity of the sculpture, any special features you request like LED backlighting or fog machines, and the distance of the vendor to your venue.
Ice sculptures are delivered at a set time in a special frozen trailer to allow for maximum longevity. Typically the ice sculpting team you hire will work directly with your wedding planner and venue to arrange delivery, choose the best location for the sculpture, and coordinate the set-up.
