Precious FavorsMake your reception tables shine by decorating each place setting with metallic nets filled with foil-wrapped chocolate dragees. The parcels are tied at either end with blue ribbon. Computer-generated labels with blue lettering and borders display the names of the bride and groom as well as the wedding date. Alternatively, labels might list the names of individual guests, allowing the favors to do double duty as place cards.

Paper FlurryA sprinkling of snowflake confetti on the tables at a winter wedding helps set a merry mood. Use craft punches to cut snowflakes from silver paper -- mix in coils and snippings of silver curling ribbon.
3 of 9In this table setting, inexpensive beribboned lanterns in shades of blue make a big impact. A plain tablecloth is dressed up with a striped runner -- we just cut fabric to size and hemmed the ends. The simple centerpiece consists of glass candleholders wrapped in patterned paper and metallic ribbons, plus blue hydrangeas in silver footed bowls. Silver chairs and napkins with blue borders round out the motif. Wrapped Cylinders How-To
4 of 9With their whispery petals and luminous silver centers, the tissue-paper flowers that bloom on this wintry wreath look as if they were plucked from a fairy tale. Perhaps more magical is the fact that this inexpensive pew decoration won't wilt or fade, so you can make as many as you need well ahead of time. How-To

Sweet ReliefIt sounds like the word for a sphinx's riddle, but anaglypta is actually the name of an embossed wallpaper the Victorians used to mimic costlier pressed plaster or tin. These days, it makes an easy centerpiece when affixed to flower-filled cylinder vases in varying sizes. Cut the paper -- available in many motifs (ours are from FYHome) -- to cover the vase, overlapping slightly. Wrap the piece around the vase, securing both ends with strong double-sided tape.

Dreamy White CascadeThe graceful quality of fritillaria and miniature cymbidium orchids enhances this bouquet's flowing composition, while lily-of-the-valley is sprinkled throughout like droplets. Accents of green -- in the foliage and on the tips of snowdrop petals -- punctuate the vision of soft white. A single dangling fritillaria adds charm, while the silver metallic bow adds elegance.

A Soft TouchA halo of silver-and-green foliage surrounds billowy garden roses and just-blossoming scilla. Velvety lamb's ear and dusty miller commingle with the plumes of two kinds of grasses and ethereal skeleton leaves that flutter with every step. The bouquet is accented with a vintage metallic ribbon (from Tinsel Trading).
8 of 9Let guests fete the happy couple with a color-coordinated send-off -- the supplies can be handed out before the ceremony or set out at the reception. Silver comes naturally to this mix in the form of tiny wedding bells and metal-stemmed sparklers. Simple embellishments, including ribbon and patterned paper, provide splashes of blue.

X-BackIlana Wolf's silk and silver-metallic capelet trimmed with sheer layers of bias-cut ruffles is a stylish choice for covering the shoulders. X-back straps, hand-embroidered with beads and tiny sequins on Angel Sanchez's Chantilly lace mermaid sheath gown, guarantee that a bride will look as beguiling from behind as she does from the front.
