  1. Candlelight, and lots of it. This will create a mysterious and romantic effect
  2. Use rich, velvet fabric as a backdrop for your photographs
  3. Personalized wax seals for your invitations
  4. Chandeliers. Rent or buy them and hang from the ceiling or flank your head table
  5. Use sheet music to line the envelopes of your invitations. Also, incorporate it into your table settings (see below)
  6. Dark colored roses and tulips for your bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces
