My ceremony will be held on the ice at our local ice arena. My question is if anyone has ANY ideas at all of how I can tie my ceremony into my reception? It’s not a hockey theme or anything of the sort but for fun the bridal party will more than likely be wearing custom made hockey jerseys. I have no clue of how to tie the two together! Maybe I shouldn’t try to tie it in at all? Any input would be awesome!

What exactly are you trying to tie together? Why are you getting married at the ice arena? If you are big hockey fans, maybe have some themes (cake that looks like hockey pucks? cookies that look like hockey sticks? ice sculptures?

Zhao Hongbo and Shen Xue (Chinese Ice skaters) got married on the ice- maybe googel them?

@kerensa: I’m trying to tie my ceremony on the ice to the reception. I like hockey but I’m not liking the idea of a hockey themed wedding because I don’t like it that much. Personally, I love the idea of getting married on the ice because it’s such a unique idea! I grew up ice skating and my fiance still skates (at that arena), so I thought why the heck not?! :] (I applaud my Father for coming up with the idea!) I’m trying to keep it formal.

I would focus on incorporating the “ice ” not the ” hockey”
add ice crystals to floral arrangements or use crystal manzanita trees
or do something blue and icy for a centerpiece
use mirrors and white flowers
use an icy blue table runner

@julies1949: I’ve been thinking about incorporating ice into the wedding reception. The blue wouldn’t work though. Our colors are eggplant and ivory. I’m happy that you mentioned the ice though! I’ve mentioned it before in a previous post but no one commented on it so I had no input on it. And I know I mentioned before that I’m not a huge fan of the hockey wedding but we’ve been talking and I almost wonder if it would be fun to have a hockey wedding and a formal reception. I was so set on a no hockey wedding but if it was just the ceremony it could work. I hate that I’m a second guesser.
