TELL VENDORS YOU SAW THEIR AD IN TODAY’S BRIDE | 113 ICE, ICE... BABY! If you want to stand out and elevate your wedding to the next level, an ice sculpture is the way to do it! An ice sculpture can add that special touch of glamour to your reception. You can make this decor element even more memorable by having the sculptor carve it throughout the reception! Have your guests guess what he or she is carving and give away prizes to the best guess. Some ice sculpture ideas are: • A monogram of your initials •  A sculpture of an anchor, intertwining rings, swans, hearts, etc. •  A display of flowers in an ice block •  A wine holder (keep your drinks chilled!) •  A food bar for seafood •  An alcohol luge • A bar top A b b y Z e rull, Today’s Bride More decor to explore Decor doesn’t just mean colorful accent pieces and gorgeous flo al arrangements. You can decorate your venue with so much more! Check out some of our favorite elements to bring your style and theme into every aspect of your reception space. Tents If you’re having an outdoor wedding, protect your investment by rent- ing a tent. Not only will the roof and walls keep you dry if it rains, but you can add air conditioners or heaters! A tent offers you year-round outdoor access to beautiful Ohio scenery, and is a blank canvas for you to decorate according to your theme! Signage Not only are wedding signs a huge trend right now, but they’re also practical! Give your guests some direction on where to sit at your ceremony, remind them to share pics on social media using your hashtag, and let them know what’s on the menu! You can even add a sentimental touch with roman- tic quotes, lyrics, or poems in calligraphy. Furniture Whether you create a lounge space, host a cocktail hour, or simply dress up your dinner tables, you’ll need to rent furniture! Decide what theme you’re going for and choose seats, tables, ottomans, couches, and rugs that fit your theme! Choose a loveseat for you and your fiancé at your sweetheart table and chiavari chairs for your dinner tables! Or, add a photo booth lounge with Victorian couches or wooden swings! Dance Floor Odds are, your guests will spend the majority of your reception on the dance floor. Make it the focal piece of the night by adding a gobo light – stenciled with your initials or a funky design – or by adding your own flooring! Not only does this designate the dance area, but it can be quite helpful for out- door weddings so your shoes don’t sink into the ground. Rent a checker-pat- terned floor, lay down rugs, design a custom acrylic sticker, or create a raised platform to serve as a stage! DECOR
