Ok, this is just my personal obsession, but I love ice luges. They are big ice sculptures that go on the bar and the bartender pours drinks in them to chill them. (Important note – these are NOT the same as ice luges that you do shots out of.) To me they have a certain wow factor. A couple of other cool ideas – flowers or fruit frozen in the ice (think this looks so cool!) or use it as part of the cold appetizer display (they can make a big serving tray out of them.) Some pics:

The first thing my mom told my wedding planner is that she loves ice sculptures. She told me about some picture where the vases for flowers were ice!

I like flowers frozen inside an iceblock. Sooo pretty. I don’t have a picture of it.

I want an icebar.

If the luge is out and you not a fan of the classic swan/heart/cupid/etc., here are some thoughts:

 

Simple shape with flowers frozen inside – so elegant and modern!

Simple monogram with your initials

"Functional" ice sculpture – champagne bowl, cold appetizer tower, etc.

Ice made into a ‘vase’ with a floral arrangement at the top

 

I am kind of on the same page with ice sculpture and these are all things that seem a bit more modern to me!

my wedding was a beach theme.  We had a cascading wave onto the shore lit by a blue light.  Really beautiful.  That also set the stage for our cocktail hour/ seafood .
