    I think the price is kind of crazy for something that will just melt away, and I have to be honest – I am not exactly loving the idea based on the picture. But, if you can afford it and you love it do it! It’s your wedding! 🙂

    Eh, I think you could find vases that would give the same effect as the beginning of it for far less than $77 each. And I don’t think guests will pay that much attention to the centerpeices to even notice it’s changing.

    I agree that I think you can do better and cheaper to achieve the effect of the ice centerpieces –  But if you love ice sculptures, maybe you could do a few for your cocktail hour tables or guest book table?

    Yeah I agree with maybe trying to find vases that look like ice instead of the actual ice. That said, go with the ice if you really, really want it and it’s important to you enough.

    @Breathless:  That is what I was going to suggest! 

    If you have the money, go for it – but I personally wouldn’t.  That’s a lot of money for what ends up being a pile of water…

    If you’re definitely set on ice sculptures, I think I would try to find a way to incorporate a few maybe as PP has said at strategic places. As centerpieces, I don’t think you’re going to get the wow factor you’re hoping for. Your guests may not realize that the melting ice is the look you’re going for. For nearly $2,000 I wouldn’t want any question about what look I wanted.

    If it’s in your budget, why not! But if getting these means you’re going to have to make sacrifices on other things you want, then I think your money could be better spent elsewhere.

    Part of me wonders if you couldn’t make your own. They look simple enough after you build your mold. I guess I would look at it as an excuse to buy a big chest freezer. Maybe I should sugest these to Fiance as a reason I need one :p

    I say if you have the money for it go for it! That is way out of my price range..but I read a TON of wedding blogs daily & I have never seen anything like this! So if you do go with them…it would be something pretty unique! I owuld def call it something that has never been done before!

    I agree that it’s too much for centerpieces, especially since it’s not as if you get to keep them. :/ I think maybe a few here and there. Plus, people really just aren’t going to notice it enough for it to be worth that much per table. I say strategically place a few throughout if you REALLY want them.

    Too expensive for what it is. Maybe do regular candle centerpieces and splurge on a cool ice sculpture for your head table?

    No no no no no. First of all – way too expensive. Second – they won’t photograph well. Third – i (personally) feel ice sculptures are dated.

    Sorry to be a debbie downer, but save your money!

    If you really love it, you could easily make your own. There are tutorials all over the place for ice bowls. You could mod it to that for a smaller version, or just build a frame for the larger cube. Enlist the freezer spaces of loved ones!
