- Luxury travel company Red Savannah is taking the idea of a cool destination wedding literally.
- With the price tag starting at R4 million, couples can enjoy breakfast on ice and a reception in a snow lounge.
- Couples and guests will be served South African cuisine, paired with award-winning wines.
Weddings are back in full swing, and if having a luxury destination wedding is on your list, this opportunity might be for you. Luxury travel company Red Savannah has just launched a R4 million wedding package to Antarctica.
While hefty, the R4 million price tag does not include extra experiences.
The wedding package includes return flights from South Africa to Antarctica, accommodations for the couple and the wedding party, beverages, food and activities. According to Forbes, the wedding will begin with a breakfast on ice, then followed by a cake-cutting ceremony and champagne in the snow lounge.
Couples need to note that this is the type of wedding where you would go big financially but not with many guests as only a wedding party of 12 is allowed. Another important note is that flights only leave from Cape Town to Antarctica, and it will take five hours to arrive at the destination. Upon arriving, guests will enjoy a white dessert party.
Unlike any other wedding where the couple would send out a wedding gift registry to all guests, with this package, guests will pledge $1000 (about R16 600) per person towards conservation and sustainability initiatives in Antarctica.
Accommodation offered includes spending a night at a brand-new Polar camp that has six futuristic pods overlooking snow. For food, South African cuisine will be served in the central pod, which will be paired with award-winning wine.
