Getting married at Christmas, or even renewing your vows or celebrating your anniversary, really adds a new meaning to the idea of a fairytale wedding. However, it may become a little impractical if you choose to host your celebration at home. The weather is pretty much guaranteed to be cold, but perhaps not very festive. To truly create a magical experience for yourselves and your guests, perhaps it’s time to consider heading to Lapland (famously the real home of Santa Claus himself) for an amazing destination wedding?
You don’t even need to go at Christmas for a festive wedding in the Lappish Fells. The weather is snowy and the scenery is spectacular all year round, so you could even recreate the magic of Christmas for your special day during the summer or at any other time that suits your wedding. The choice is yours.
A typical wedding package in Lapland would include your ceremony and any costs for things like administration fees and your actual certificates of marriage, so all this can be taken care of for you. Usually a professional wedding planner will be involved from when you place your booking in order to assist with all the arrangements, including transport to and from the venue, plus decorating and organising the event itself. Like most package weddings or holidays in general, you can choose the level of customisation you want versus the convenience of having the hassle dealt with for you.
Of course, the joy of travelling to Lapland for your marriage ceremony is that you can fill the rest of your time with amazing and memorable activities! You’ll get an authentic Arctic adventure when you travel here, including sleigh rides, snowmobile riding and more fun activities. You’ll also get to meet huskies, reindeer and more festive local wildlife. Typically you would be able to plan your whole trip with set activities for each day, which helps you get the most of of your wonderful destination wedding trip. What better way could there be to travel for Christmas?
