Gothenburg is a dream wedding destination. You might have ceremony in an intimate city centre hotel near the historic old town, with historic architecture providing the backdrop for your wedding photos. Alternatively, swap the city for the countryside and arrange to say your vows in a wedding venue overlooking lake and forest, before enjoying a mini-moon urban break in trendy Gothenburg city centre. Whether you want to save money on a cheap hotel or splash out and throw a luxurious, no-expense-spared get-together for all your friends and family, Gothenburg’s wedding hotels can deliver.
While the big day is what weddings are all about, some brides and grooms also like to plan pre-wedding soirees, particularly when guests are coming from far away and staying for longer. Let your family and friends feast on fresh, crisp Swedish dishes during a rehearsal dinner at one of the many fine-dining restaurants that line the Gothia River.
If you need to pick up last-minute supplies or wedding favours, head for the busy, shop-lined central boulevard of Avenyn. For more quirky wedding-related finds, try the antique shops and boutiques of Haga. Wedding guests faced with last-minute wardrobe crises, meanwhile, can find affordable Scandi-chic clothing all over the city.
After celebrating your wedding with friends and family, you’ll be eager for some quality time with just you and your loved one. Consider staying on in your Gothenburg wedding hotel for a few days to help you unwind. Explore some of Gothenburg’s cultural attractions by day, taking in the Museum of Gothenburg, the Maritime Museum and the Gothenburg Art Museum. At night, go bar-hopping in the lively district of Linné or dine in some of the city’s romantic restaurants.
If you want to shift things down a gear, take a day trip to the unspoilt Gothenburg. Hide away in the handsome harbour town of Marstrand or stroll hand-in-hand along the deserted sandy beaches of Vrångö Island.
With historic buildings, buzzing shops and cultural attractions and a great range of wedding hotels, Gothenburg is the perfect place to plan your big day.
