Posted July 5, 2014on:
Have you thought ditching the flower centerpiece on your wedding reception tables and going for a distinctive look and still have that elegant appeal, then candles as a stunning arrangement on those tables maybe the answer. With some thought and creativity, your party tables can be inspiring with beautiful and elegant candle centerpieces for the wedding reception. Candles are perfect for wedding centerpieces and decor because they’re soft, romantic and gorgeous, but inexpensive as wedding centerpieces.
With most venues, candles are only allowed to be used when in a container and the flame of the candle is below the top of the container. So when planning the candle centerpieces, ensure the candles are placed in a vase. There are a variety of styled and design vases for candles to choose from, hurricane vases, cylinder vases, tulip shaped, bubble bowls, goblets, rectangle or square and even ones personalized with an initial. Depending on your wedding style and the look is your choice.
Whether you go with pillar candles, floating, votive or tealight candles, make sure the burn time is long enough for your event, and that the candle burns properly. Many candles can burn 6-10 hours lasting long enough to give your tables that stunning glow throughout your wedding reception.
Simple to execute, using candles will give your event a visually captivating look giving your tables and banquet hall a powerful dramatic display of arrangements, transforming an ordinary reception table into and array elegance.
Decorating your wedding reception with candles can be a simple DYI, or if your limited on time, ask your florist or a business who provides wedding rental services if they can provide the style and design you are looking for, coordinating with your decor and wedding theme.
