Julie (aunt of the bride) wanted the words LOVE carved from a single block of ice along with the bride and groom's name carved in to the base of the ice plinth.
The decision was to create the Vodka Luge in a Portrait format (as opposed to a Landscape format) - The Vodka Luge stood 1m tall by 1/2m wide. The word LOVE would be split into two - "LO" on top and "VE" below. In the base of the Vodka Luge we carved their names - "Lauren and Chris".
To turn the ice sculpture into a Vodka Luge, we drilled a channel from the top-back of the sculpture through to the right hand side. A Vodka Luge was born in Love. Once drilled, we inserted a plastic sheaf/tube right through the drilled channel. As the sculpture was for a Wedding, the plastic tube would enable anybody of any age to pour whatever drink they wished throught the ice - alcohol, soft drinks, Mocktails, Champagne even fizzy drinks if they wished!
Without the tube, only alcohol based drinks could be used. A funnel was placed at the entry point of the Vodka Luge - making it easy and simple to pour drinks through the Vodka Luge. Without the funnel, drink being poured would spill all over the place! We try to think of everything (most of the time).
To enhance the Vodka Luge experience, Julie ordered Ice Shot Glasses for everyone to 'have a go'. For Julie, we supplied everything she needed to have a great and memorable time from: buckets, to measuring shot glasses through to ice shot glasses (and even a bucket for guests to place their used ice shot glasses!)
