Event Glamour at the Oscars

Black and white is everywhere right now (including Elton John's AIDS fundraiser). Incredibly chic for any event, you can play with it for any wedding. Add a splash of color to brighten it up or Art Deco and crystal accents to play up its elegance.

Inverted parasols are a great ceiling treatment (and a great way to move away from Chinese lanterns). Cluster them together over a dance floor or spread out (like above) for a more whimsical feel. They are also very inexpensive!

A bonsai tree as the centerpiece! Though perhaps this is a bit extravagant for your wedding, think of ways that you can be eco-chic. Including live plants and potted flowers are a way that you can save on waste from your wedding.

Square lanterns in the center of the table are covered with moss and florals. Use an acolyte lantern (electric candle), a paper shade with a battery-powered bulb, or a luminary with a few candles. This is a way to create a centerpiece that includes flowers, but doesn't feature them. This works especially well with long, rectangular tables where you can highlight the candles with a table runner.
