@Jbomb1989:  It’s your wedding, and you can do whatever you and your SO would like.

In my personal opinion, I don’t think this would be the ideal place to get married. Then again I am a more traditional bride, and am getting married in a church- but you asked for opinions! Lol.

Where would your guests sit? In the benches or on the cement rink?

I just keep thinking of the ice skating rink that is in my town, and it doesn’t say “wedding venue” to me.

If your space is beautiful, go for it! Maybe adding pics will help others see your vision come to life!

I think the rink would be lovely for pictures afterwards though! πŸ˜€

@julies1949:  I’m not saying that it can’t be done, or it hasn’t been done, I was just saying that I couldn’t picture it and would like to see pics of her venue, since there will be no ice, and just a cement floor.

 

@Jbomb1989:  I just want to clarify that my response to you was an honest opinion and in no way a snide or belittling remark πŸ™‚ It was an honest opinin from my point of view.

@Jbomb1989:  Omg, that’s the dopest thing I’ve ever heard. I’m a huge hockey fan and would love to do that.
What are you doing for your cake topper? I’ve seen some cute bride and groom playing hockey, and two pucks up there would be awesome!

Be sure to post pictures of it. I can’t wait to see!

@SarahVee:   I don’t know what I said to trigger that response. All I did was tell the OP the screen names of two Bees who had or are having hockey rink weddings.

I made no reference to your post whatsoever.

I think a rink could be a really neat-looking venue for an urban, ultra-modern wedding. But I have trouble seeing how you’d make rustic work in there. It’s not something I’ve given a lot of thought to up until now, though, so who knows.

Canadian… and many of us LIVE and BREATHE hockey so I for one get it.

Summertime is Fair & Exhibition Season… and a lot arenas tend to naturally be a part of that in small towns (arenas being at / beside the local fairgrounds) so I’ve been to many a Concert / Dance / Fundraiser that has happened inside an arena with Hay Bales, Beer Garden & Entertainment… so really a very workable venue IMO

I think a Hockey Themed Wedding would be cool… but then I am about to Marry a 60+ year old hockey nut (nicknamed Mr Hockey)

LOVE the pics that julies1949:  posted in Reply # 7

As well as RACHIECAKE’s Wedding Pics that julies1949:  also linked to in Reply # 3

Personally, I think that a Hockey Wedding is totally do-able.

So by all means… go for the “breakaway” and run with the idea… I’m sure it will be a success.

PS… You can make this as rustic or classy as you like… GOOGLE – Arena Wedding – or – Arena Weddings – to see pics.

@Jbomb1989:  Luminarias would make great substititutes for candles in glass vases if thats what you were thinking.<br /><br />White paper bags, use paper punches to make a design you like or glue doilies on the inside of the bag, add a scoop of sand to the bag then add a votive candle or LED tealight. I would add a short plastic bag (like a ziplock bag)inside before adding the sand so in case the paper bag gets soggy, you wont end up with sand all over the ice.
