Budget Minded Tips and Tricks For Your Iceland Wedding

Are you planning the perfect destination wedding?  The budget for a wedding can quickly get out of hand, but don’t worry, in today’s blog we share with you a few tips and tricks on how to keep a handle on those purse strings.

With a little research online, you can find loads of different helpful websites to design your wedding invitations. Our friends at Wedding Chicks  have a a handful of beautiful print outs, including invitations, place cards, menus, save the dates and seating charts for the perfect Iceland wedding event.  They even have labels which can come in handy for sealing envelopes.   The best part about these printables are they are completely free and easy to modify. The most difficult tasks will be choosing from their many deliciously beautiful layouts, deciding on a colour scheme. and selecting your card stock from your local office supply store.  Select your colour, the theme, add in your desired choice of words (names, dates, location)…and it´s Iceland Wedding here we come!  We wish you good luck choosing one as there are so many beautiful ones to choose from.


When choosing wedding decor whether it be for the ceremony or the reception, Pinterest is your friend.  Pinterest has many beautiful “DIY” ideas which can assist in lessening the burden on your bank account. Ranging from easy to difficult, simple to extravagant, DIY wedding decor is becoming more and more popular.  Along with the financial benefits, creating your own decor allows you to customize the arrangements to exactly what you want.  Why settle when you can have exactly what you want at your Icelandic wedding, right?   If you plan on transporting your already assembled decor to Iceland, we suggest using a hard shell suitcase on container. Another brilliant way to save on your budget minded Iceland wedding is artificial flowers.  Afloral has a beautiful selection of assembled bouquets, or you can even design one on your own.   What a better way to remember your Iceland Wedding Day than a bouquet you can keep forever?

If your dream is to have the decor to have a truly authentic Icelandic feel, decor may be rented from Iceland Wedding Planner  You can rent anything from Icelandic moss for your centerpieces, to basalt rocks for your place card holders.  A Day of Planner may also be hired to take care of the decorating while you enjoy the best day of your life.   Bouquet? Place settings? Centerpieces? Ceremony and reception decor? A Day of Planner has you covered!


We also wanted to share with you a few ideas on what you can give your guests as a keep safe from your memorable Iceland wedding day.   A few of our clients have gone with samples of  Icelandic liquors or spirits.  Popular choices are Reyka Vodka, Björk schnapps, or the famous Icelandic Brennivín also known as “Black Death”.  Dare to be even more Icelandic? Pair the Brennivin with fermented shark, an Icelandic tradition.  Another popular option is giving your guests Icelandic salt.  Saltverk has a selection of delicious salts including lava salt induced with activated charcoal and Iceland´s favorite flavor; black licorice.   Another creative choice and today’s craze is all about nature and our well being. Our friends at Nordic Angan have a variety of products made with Icelandic herbs.   Ranging from essential oils to shampoo bars.   A beautiful and earth friendly gift to remember Iceland by.
