I am looking for ideas for an Indoor Winter Reception in or around the Syracuse NY area - I really want romance on my special wedding day!
My ideas appear to be simple: 1. Friday evening (check) 2. Fireplace 3. Candles 4. Romantic atmosphere
OH and it has to be inexpensive as we are paying for it ourselves and still have student loans etc... to pay for.

Thanks for your suggestions. Keep em coming!
I am also trying to go for that fairytale winter wonderland theme at the reception and my mind is cluttered any ideas on things I can be creative about as far as centerpieces flowers decorations cake plating etc...
Words I heard were warm, fire place, romantic. What about browns for the colors with touches of cream? Make your centerpieces full of different height candles clumped tightly together to create that romantic glow. You can add richness to the table by sprinkling warm colored glass rocks. Check your space, if there are little alcoves or legded windows then you could crate clumps of candles and place a fire place screen in front of them to mimic a glowing fire. If you didn't want to go icy with your touches, try pine cones of different sizes in baskets or in your vases. There's lots you can do!
Oh and I forgot - depending on your venue you could even arrive in a horse drawn carriage and then leave it available for your guests to ride in.
These are all great suggestions. I am learning more and more that every little detial costs something! My wedding/reception is going to be in November and if anyone is familiar with the Upstate NY weather you know that it isnt a reliable time of year. It could be 70 degrees, raining, snowing...etc. I am however leaning now more toward a Fall Theme instead of a Winter theme. Keep the good suggestions coming~! Thank you ALL!
