Summer brides are starting to dot their i's and cross their T's, but winter brides and those 2010 couples are just rolling up their sleeves for inspiration. I was just thinking about the stigma from corporate events that Ice Sculptures have gotten and thought I'd hit you all off with a little "IceSperation" (another Punny). They can be used in totally modern, really beautiful ways at weddings to wow.
If you've got the budget, consider Ice Vases, or freezing blooms inside oversized Ice Cubes. These were all done by Ice Fantasies for tables we designed for clients.
I also really love them as signature pieces for an escort card display. Here are two from a couple of weddings we did a couple of years ago, also by Ice Fantasies (where does the time go?)
Finally, here are some newer, really pretty takes for ice as food display from fellow Brunonian, Okomoto Studios via The Bride's Guide.
The moral of the story... don't be afraid of ice. It can be un-tacky and it can be your friend. Your wedding day may be full of warmth, but your decor can be ice cold (oh, my cheese kills me :-)
