Enchanting Wedding Candle Centrepiece Ideas
By the end of this article, you will have all the inspiration you need to nail your wedding candle centrepiece. Plus I will share my top wedding candle tips and considerations to help your decor go without a hitch!
Wedding Candle Planning Help
Many wedding venues have a policy where they don’t allow wedding candles. This may be due to health and safety or their insurance. Carefully check your contract or ask your wedding venue if they are happy with you using candles before you purchase them.
Don’t fret if you can’t use real lit candles. LED wedding candles have come a long way in emulating real candles and can look beautiful. To make them more sustainable give them a home post-wedding to reuse, or sell on to another couple for a new life.
It’s a good idea to use candle holders that collect dripping wax. If you are hiring other wedding items such as tablecloths or furniture, the last thing you will want is ruined pieces you potentially have to pay for. Holders that collect wax will also prevent mess and keep candles safe from little ones or spillages. Don’t forget to place flammable items (or clothing) away from candles, do think about the candle positioning carefully.
When styling your wedding candle decor consider candle height and size. Work in the rule of threes too, odd numbers always look better when styling for a natural effect.
On the wedding day itself ask a handy helper to light your candles at a certain time. Look at the sunset times for your wedding date and estimate when the flickering light is going to come into its own. Oh and don’t forget matches or a lighter for the day.
