You are planning your wedding
on a tight budget. But, you have an eye for style that you are not willing to compromise. Does this sound like you?
A little DIY
and creativity can go a long way, and you can
create a beautiful ambiance at your wedding reception without breaking the bank. Want to know how? Meet white candles of all different sizes; they may just become your new best friend! Plain white candles are extremely budget-friendly
, can be purchased in bulk, and will create a romantic, sexy vibe at your wedding reception.
Here are a few DIY wedding décor ideas that utilize white candles…
- Arrange white candles of varying sizes on large silver trays; place the trays on your wedding reception tables.
- Fill glass bowls with sand (and a few sea shells if you are going for a beach theme), and insert tall white candles.
- Place a row of white pillar candles down the center of each wedding reception table, and voila! You can also line the wedding ceremony white aisle, path to the wedding reception, or stairs leading to your cocktail hour with glowing candles.
- For an outdoor wedding reception, find creative places to place tea lights. Check out the picture below- a single, twinkling tea light is placed in a faux bird’s nest, nestled within ribbon-adorned branches. Simply stunning!
Lots of candles will help to create an intimate, elegant mood at your wedding. You know how romantic a candle lit dinner with your fiancé can be, so why shouldn’t your wedding exude the same enchanted feel?
