At what season do you want to get married? Most wedding in Iceland take place in the summer, so maybe you need a longer planning period if you are planning on summer wedding, just to be save to get vacancy at your favorite hotel or church.

Some people like to get married in the nature; I think that is beautiful other just take some nature picture.


Old Icelandic Wedding
If you want an Icelandic old fashion wedding, I would recommend wedding at Arbaearsafn. They rent out the church for a reasonable fee. 40-50 people can be seeded in the church. You can also have your fest there in Dillonshus, it is very nice.Arbæjarkikja Tel +354-411-6300

A truth from the past
The Icelandic word for wedding is “brúðkaup” that means to buy a bright. It is an old word that is still used although we are very liberal regarding divorce and most Icelandic women demand there husband to participate 100% in the household.
