Wedding Inspiration: Oooh and Aaah Factor!

Question: Beverly my wedding is going to be simple, but elegant.  My mom and I would like to know how to incorporate the "Oooh and Aaah" factor into a simple, but elegant wedding?

Answer:  This is a great question.  Whether you are having a wedding that is simple, elaborate, elegant or plain you should always incorporate the "Oooh and Aaah" factor into your wedding.  What that is will be based on your budget. 

If  you have a sizable budget to work with, you can go with an elaborate ice sculpture so long as it is not going to sit outdoors in the summer months.  I also like the idea of illuminated bubble bars. If you want your focal point to be on your centerpieces, go with very tall floral arrangement with crystals and and lights shining down on each centerpiece.  Or have a lighted dance floor.  If you plan to have steak, chicken or salmon, also have a food station set alone that serves sliders, tiny hot dogs in a blanket (junk food) or an ice cream bar or a candy station/dessert station, etc.


If you have a modest budget, you can use up lights around the room.  Use candles as your centerpieces that sit on mirror plates.  If it's a winter season wedding, place white crystals on your place cad table to make it look like snow.
