Wedding candle centerpieces are a great alternative to traditional flower centerpieces.
A lot of thought and planning goes into every aspect of your wedding day, the ceremony, your dress, the food as well as decorating the space where you’ll be having the wedding reception.
One of the first things guests often comment on when walking into the reception hall are the centerpieces, so you want yours to stand out and to be memorable.
Candles are always elegant and add a beautiful glow to each table. Arranging them on a table can be accomplished in so many different ways that yours will be unique to your wedding.
You can arrange different sized candles on a mirror so that the light reflects off of it. Or you can choose beautiful glass lanterns or enclosed glass cases to house a colored candle of your choice.
There is such a variety of of sizes, shapes and colors to choose from that you will be able to match your candles to your wedding reception’s theme easily.
Add sea blue candles to some beach sand in the middle of the table and arrange tiny seashells and other beach themed decorations to the mix and you have beautiful wedding candle centerpieces that will look incredible and have folks commenting on them for days after the reception.
If you’re getting married in the Fall, throw brightly colored fall leaves in the middle of your reception tables and use shelled out pumpkins to house your candles for an incredibly unique centerpiece.
Winter weddings are becoming more popular and having beautiful white or red candles surrounded by holly or silver snowflakes that glitter in candlelight are a great, elegant choice for your centerpieces. A wreath surrounding your choice of colored candles is also a great wedding reception centerpiece idea for the Winter months.
If you’re really into do it yourself wedding centerpieces you could even make your own candles and decorate them with a picture of the bride and groom or carve the date of your wedding into them. These would be great wedding candle centerpieces that everyone would want to take home and save as a memento of your special day.
Simple wedding centerpieces can be the perfect solution for your wedding. They can often provide a dramatic look and then be given to guests at the end of the reception.
Most people plan the wedding on a budget and there is no reason for this part of the budget to take a big chunk of the money. Sometimes less is better and there is no need to compromise the overall look.
The season will also dictate what type of centerpieces you should use. Fresh flowers are nice but not necessary. Dried ones will provide the same effect and be bought ahead and arranged weeks before the wedding.
Old silver vases and serving pieces can often be found at garage sales and second hand stores. They make great reception wedding centerpieces. Add a picture of the newlyweds in a frame and you have an easy and inexpensive pleasing centerpiece.
Potted plants can also be used and then given to close relatives and friends who are at the wedding.
Candles always add that needed ambiance for an evening wedding and placed on a small mirror the reflection will be beautiful.
The point of the wedding is to provide an opportunity for the bride and groom to share their vows and let the world know they are starting a new life together as a couple.
Of course they want the day to be beautiful and one to remember, but keeping things simple can often provide one of the best backdrops for the reception.
Incorporate the flowers from the wedding party into the bride and grooms table at the reception. They can simply be arranged around some candles to create an eloquent look.
If your reception is outside keep in mind that the surroundings will often dictate the type of centerpieces you should use. Be careful with candles and use lights with batteries instead to keep the wind from causing problems.
Simple can be beautiful and will provide the look you want without looking overdone. Be creative and realistic. Your wedding will be beautiful and your guests will enjoy the day if you and your partner provide a welcoming atmosphere and simple wedding centerpieces.
