I have this feeling that I am forgetting something, or that maybe what I’m not doing is being forgotten because I don’t know about it yet!!!!!!!!
What better way to find out what the most incredible, coolest thing ever was … so, tell us what has it been? What was the WOW factor, I want something that makes everyone think about my wedding, and for it to be set apart from all the others.
What is your wow factor?
Thank you BEES!

An amazingly sick 10 person Motown Band. I mean they were incredible and totally unforgettable. Seriously. Awesome.
But also seriously expensive…it never hurts to dream, though.

During their first dance, my sister and her husband arranged for sparklers to go off all around the dance floor. There were potted boxwoods surrounding the dancefloor, and the sparklers were tucked in them. It was a surprise for everyone. Afterwards, my dad ran up to my sister and asked, "Did you know that was going to happen?!?" She had to tell him that he’d paid for that to happen! The boxwoods’ containers were on wheels, so once that was over, they were wheeled away.

A friend of mine had a slideshow of the bride and groom’s past and present video clips and pictures during the wedding. The last scene was them standing in Grand Central Train Station in New York city listening to a Motown group. The slideshow abruptly cut off and the same Motown singers seen in the slideshow came out to sing on the dancefloor LIVE !!! It was AMAZINNNGGGGGG !!!!!!!! They also sang the couple into their first dance, so romantic !

The reception was a couple of blocks down the road from the wedding site in a downtown district. The couple hired a high school jazz band, a juggler & dancers to parade the attendants down the street. It reminded me of being in New Orleans & it was really fun being ushered this way.

I’ve seen fireworks that were amazing, but I have to say that the most fun was this great band at the wedding that we just went to in New Orleans a couple of weeks ago. They were great and they did fun New Orleans kind of things like wave napkins, let everybody bang this big drum. Yay!

The bride and groom walking down the aisle together instead of the bride’s dad walking her down… they held hands and the music was so fun and upbeat… everyone was crying! Of course, that isn’t for everyone!
I’ve also seen something similar to what Grey56 said, except the couple had these big balloons on each corner of the dance floor and the balloons popped during the first dance and sent confetti everywhere!

My friend wanted to incorporate her Hispanic roots into her wedding. So she had a mariachi band playing during their (picture perfect) outdoor ceremony! It was beautiful….

A friend of mine had a solid ice bar at her cocktail hour. They served vodka and caviar shots from little shot-glass-divets that had been carved into the ice.

I second the ice bar! We’re having an ice sculpture made like the one below (our monogram with limes) and serving a signature drink since we’re only serving beer and wine. This was people still have the option of a cocktail without having to pay for it.

My cousin and his wife were long distance for about a year and he would play the guitar for her over the phone – love songs about missing each other. He played guitar for his wife for their first dance and she just sat there and listened, crying. We all were in tears after that.

I love all of these ideas!!! So far I have hired an amazing 7 person band, I have heard they are reallllly good. I haven’t actually seen them, but their website is great.
I would loove one of my bars to be an ice bar!!!
My mom just told me this cool idea of flowers that were in ice vases! Lol.
