Brides concerned about tying the knot with their chosen beloveds can ease their minds with the License to Wed package (starting at $2,757) at Badrutt’s Palace (St. Moritz, Switzerland). It puts their husbands-to-be to the test by requiring them to pass a washing and ironing exam, which is administered by a housekeeper, followed by an assessment by a butler who will determine their aptitude as true gentlemen and show them some tricks of the trade. The hotel’s executive chef will also savor the fruits of their labor as the soon-to-be groom and his groomsmen learn to prepare a Sunday roast for the in-laws. Ideal for the ultimate bachelor party, the two-night package includes accommodations in a superior room; dinner in Le Restaurant or Chesa Veglia; a tour of the Palace wine cellar with a sommelier and a glass of Champagne; dinner at the Chef’s Table in the Palace Kitchen; a toboggan rental and run; an ironing course, an etiquette class, and a cooking session complete with certificate of completion; a pub crawl through St. Moritz; and more, including a visit to Palace Wellness, which will be much appreciated after they’ve been whipped into shape. It’s certainly one way to warm cold feet.
