We’ve seen it in the movies, we’ve read about it in numerous books - it is epitome of romance to walk into a room completely adorned with candlelight and rose petals. As a matter of fact we’ve almost been brainwashed to believe that a romantic interlude is supposed to contain candles, chocolates, champagne, strawberries, rose petals and beautiful music. Believe it or not, you can turn your wedding into that romantic space that you’ve always envisioned with some simple purchases of wedding candle favors
To get that completely romantic dreamy feel to your reception, set the date for an evening soiree. Make sure the venue location knows to keep the lighting dim, because you will be using candles. Inform the DJ or band what type of lighting you want as well, you may want to start off with very dim lights of only a single color and then transform the dance floor as the evening progresses.
For the reception tables, select a candle holder which is clear or frosted to give off the best light. Clear holders such as our Elegant Black & Crystal Flower Candle Favors
or our Cystal Diamond Light Tealight Holders
will brighten the tables with the fiery light of the candles. Frosted candle holders such as our Elegant Silver Beaded Candle Holder or Elegant Black & Frosted Crystal Candle Holders
will give off a much more subdued glow. Either way, scatter these around your centerpieces on each table to give it the romantic cast you are looking for. For your centerpieces, roses would make a romantic touch, whereas white trees with clear lights or hanging crystals will reflect and add an additional glow to your tables.
To keep with the romantic candle theme, purchase silk rose petals
and scatter them around and in between the candles. With your champagne toast, provide chocolate covered strawberries to each guest. And don’t forget the music! Make sure it is soft, sweet and romantic.
To further add to the ambiance, make sure all aspects of the room are touched by candlelight. Keep a candle in a hurricane by your guest book, line the bar with tea lights, and make sure your head table is sufficiently scattered with candles.
And don’t forget to give your guests a romantic wedding candle favor
for them to bring home so that they too can keep the romance burning bright!
