Getting Creative with Candles

 

Candles are a long-standing tradition when it comes to weddings.

If you are planning to incorporate candles into your décor, why not spice things up by getting creative with candles for your wedding!

Creating Spaces

Getting creative with candles is a great way to define different areas of your wedding, especially if you have an open-concept floor plan. Lead your guests to the ceremony with a pathway lined in beautifully lit candles or corner your dance floor with clusters of light to give that dark and intimate vibe. If you are concerned about open flames, consider using LED candles in high traffic areas instead.

Out-of-the-Box Containers

Instead of using hurricane lanterns or votive candles, try wine bottles at varying heights with tapers instead of the classic candelabra. Also consider using different sized terra cotta pots with pillar candles to act as votives.

Be sure to check with your venue on their open flame rules just to be sure everyone is on the same page.

Hanging Candles

Candles can go in other places than on the table. Go ahead and hang them up for a dramatic effect!

Think fireflies on a summer night or twinkle lights in a forest. Hanging your candles is a whimsical way to wow your guests and evoke that starry night feel.

DIY Projects

DIY projects are all about taking something generic and making it personal. Consider using ordinary votive candles or glass containers only to then dress them up with personal touches that coordinate with your wedding décor.
