Oyster Ice Bar

This time of year in Australia is simply perfect for indulging in oysters and champagne. I've often thought how i'd love to have an oyster bar at my own wedding (and then go missing with a horny Frog Prince for awhile.. hehehe). But to be honest, oysters are not exactly the prettiest things on earth are they? Well here are some great ways to 'pretty' them up with sculptured ice-trays, along side vodka ice-cups and chilled champagne bottles (and i have to say, how sensational are the huge 'diamond' ice carvings in the last photo... now that's a diamond... me likey !!!)




A unique concept from Screaming Queens...
A 'Strolling Table' oyster bar

This is a great idea, especially the oysters in ice! :)

That oyster bar strolling table is from Screaming Queens! I've seen it there before! :/
That's not in Melbourne! Did they steal their photos?

Hi Kate,

I got the image from Wedding Stylists Melbourne. I just looked at their website again to confirm that i didn't make a mistake and yes, that is where that image came from, their Human Tables category. Perhaps they work together on functions ???

Bet wishes,

Frog Princess

Screaming Queens is based in the US.
Looking on the Wedding Stylists Melbourne website I have seen their main image before as well.. I believe it's actually the work of a company based in LA called Details Event Planning and was featured awhile ago on The Bridal Bar.

I contacted Screaming Queens to enquire if they work together and the response was that the images of the Oyster bar and the Marie Antionette table that weddingstylistsmelbourne have on their website are their images and were used without their permission by weddingstylistsmelbourne. They had no idea they were being used by a business in Melbourne and have no connection to them. They said it was upsetting.

That Oyster bar image is straight from the Screaming Queens website, they provide strolling tables of all styles.
The main image on the weddingstylistsmelbourne website wasn't their work either, they are using other peoples work and passing it off as work they have done themselves.

It makes me wonder about the other images on the weddingstylistsmelbourne site? If 3 of them that we know of were taken from other businesses and are being passed off as their own can we trust that any or all haven't also been taken from other people?

Its terrible they are lying to brides to be and misrepresenting themselves, how can they take credit for other peoples work.

By taking images of other peoples websites and using images of other peoples ideas, hard work and talent and passing them off as their own, they are misleading brides and also taking credit away from the people who's images they are using. People should not use images of work they haven't done, how are you supposed to know what their skills are and what they can provide if they use work from other people. Very unimpressed.

Hi Kate,
I have updated my post and have credited the Strolling Table to Screaming Queens. Thank you for bringing the misrepresentation to my attention.

Wedding Stylist Melbourne has been removed from the credit.

Thanks again.
