Candlelight wedding inspiration

As a nearly-wed, you know all about flowers and balloons and fabrics and backdrops…but have you given much thought to the lighting? Specifically, candle-lighting? No, it’s not 1699; you don’t have to illuminate your wedding with candle-power, but candles have never lost their romantic appeal. If they’re good enough for a romantic evening alone together, imagine what dramatic touches that candles – regular, or LED – can lend to your special day?

Ways to Use Candles at Your Wedding

Candlelight, when used properly, can set a romantic tone for your wedding ceremony or reception (or both) while providing a soft, dreamy light; however, problems can arise if candles are used improperly. For example, insufficient candlelight can leave guests with a cold, creepy feeling instead of a warm glow. Here are some ways to use candles to good effect.

  • Floating candles are always lovely, and often come in flower shapes which are perfect for a wedding. You can place them in glass bowls of various sizes and even add a drop of food colouring or some glass pebbles to the water for special effect. One caveat: their burn time tends to be low, so plan well.
  • Tapers in candelabras make a fabulous statement; just be certain to get the dripless kind, to save your expensive linens.
  • Tea lights are extremely inexpensive; any couple can afford to absolutely fill the room with them. You can mix the votives (which come in a huge range of different colours and shapes) with candles of different sizes and place flower garlands around the various groupings.
  • Large pillar candles can go on stands near the altar or at the end of each pew, to provide just enough light for pictures

Tips for a Perfect Candlelit Wedding Ceremony

Anyone who’s planned a wedding knows that the best laid plans can be derailed by the most trivial-seeming thing – and a candlelit ceremony is no exception. Before you finalize your plans, make sure…

  • The fire ordinances and the venue permit the lighting of candles
  • Your wedding party knows it will be a candlelight ceremony, and where the candles will be placed, to help avoid accidents or confusion
  • You opt for scent-free or preferably natural beeswax candles as much as possible, to minimize the risk of allergic reactions or overly strong scents
  • You provide sufficient protection from the elements (wind, rain) so that your candles don’t go out
  • The person in charge of lighting the candles has sufficient lighters or matches to do the job
  • You have a plan to leave no lit candles burning unattended

Enjoy your beautiful ‘evening out’ – think romantic candlelit dinner, shared with a few dozen of your closest friends and family!
