Candles represent a very good way to enhance the atmosphere of a wedding, being at the same time, a method of transporting guests to a more romantic environment.
Candles are made of paraffin, soy, beeswax, gel or tallow. They are made by candle manufacturers, who are traditionally known as chandlers. Candles can be very simple (such as votive candles), or come in elaborate designs.
Those who need some ideas of how to use candles at their wedding, should consider the next pieces of advice provided here.
The first advice regards using some floating candles, that are the last hottest trend in the wedding industry. You can keep small candles from getting overpowered by placing them into some slender glass vases filled with water. After this, make sure to surround those vases with some other transparent vases, holding beautiful flowers, like hydrangeas, roses and orchids.
A couple celebrating their wedding in winter can use candles to create a warmer atmosphere and also to substitute the lovely flowers that could have been used several months ago, in the summertime, if the couple would have organized a summer wedding. Thus, they can use some votive candles and place them into paper bags that feature some beautiful drawings, representing flowers. Blooms drawn on paper bags offer a romantic boost to any winter wedding. Why spend a lot of money on purchasing flowers from greenhouses, when you can use all sorts of tricks like this one, and be surrounded by flowers as well? Besides using floral images on paper bags, walls or tables in case of a winter wedding, we also recommend using some silk or satin flowers. In fact, even the bridal bouquet can be made of artificial flowers too, to make sure that it will resist the low temperatures outside.
Another spectacular idea is to use a sort of a tray, that has the same characteristics as a mirror, and place 10 or 12 transparent glasses on it. After this, in every class, you should place a thick candle, resembling a unity candle, allowing that tray to transform into a pool of reflective light, that casts an exquisite glow onto the reception tables.
Amaze your guests by using some photo candle centerpieces. For a centerpiece like this, you need to use a set of 3 hinged photo frames, placed around a votive candle. Obviously, these photo frames are not made of the usual material, which is metal or wood, but of vellum paper, allowing those photos to shine. Vellum paper is translucent enough for the images to be visible by candlelight, even when no other source of light is used in that location.
