Step by Step

Lining the ceremony aisle or grand staircase with elegant candlelight can add a wondrous glow during the bridal procession, as well as throughout the night! For safety sake, place candles in appropriate containers, or consider battery operated LED lights to complete the look.

Hanging Vases

Reminiscent of fireflies on a summer night, hanging lanterns can add a fun and whimsical touch to any wedding. Place LED lights into hanging vases or glass lanterns for a beautiful look, both indoors and outdoors.

Floral Centerpieces

Don’t let the flowers steal the show! Few things go better together than candles and flowers for your wedding centerpiece. Show off some of your gorgeous blooms in soft candlelight for a cozy atmosphere, perfect for conversations!

Head Table

Whether it’s a festive table full of your wedding party or an intimate sweetheart table, shed some light and line some candles up for a spectacular display! Tapers, pillars, and floating candles in vases all make excellent choices for an exquisite look.

When designing the candle arrangements for your special day, be sure to get in contact with the venue prior to the big day to ensure that your plans abide by all fire rules and regulations. If the venue has strict policies regarding open flame, battery-operated LED candles are a wonderful alternative to the real thing. Plus, you get the added bonus of not worrying about wax dripping onto those gorgeous linens! Now, go get creative and light up your night!
