Candle light is perfect for an evening or night time wedding, you don’t necessarily have to have flowers, even if I suggest to have some, but you really need candle light. It adds a lovely glow and sets an intimate and romantic tone.

Candlelight will also give that wow factor when guests enter the room.

Line your entrance path with candles or paper bags, hang candles in vases from trees, mix them with your flower arrangements or use just candles as centerpieces, put floating candles in the pool, use them to underline the architecture of a building or line them on steps and pathways to invite guests into certain areas.

Be sure to ask  the venue if they allow candles inside and outside and if there are any restrictions.

If you have an outdoor wedding, be sure to have candleholders that are taller than your candles, as these might blow out with the wind otherwise and it also prevents any possible fires.

Have a look at some candles and floral inspiration at some past weddings and some other ideas on my pinterest board.
