Light your evening ceremony with candles #Favors & Flowers#bouquet alternatives#ceremony#evening wedding#non-floral bouquet#steal-this-idea Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Jan 4 2013) Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Photo by Michael Ivankay Jennifer and Rick took advantage of their evening ceremony to put everyone in the most flattering light: candlelight. The bridesmaids carried bell-shaped candle holders and the guests were all given small candles of their own, which made the whole event look mystical. Don't want to have flowers? Maybe candles are the way to go. Check out Jennifer and Rick's candlelit wedding for more photos of the ceremony.

Reply Our ceremony is going to be in a historic church so that means no open flames, however I have noticed that there are some craft stores with LED pillar "candles". I'm going to look into them. Reply This is a wonderful idea. But if photos are important to you, check with your photographer to make sure you have enough light to snap good pictures. Moar candles! 🙂 Reply I actually went to a wedding like this back in May 2007, and it was quite lovely with all the candles lining the pews and brightening up the otherwise dim sanctuary. The only exception was that the brideswomen and guests didn't hold any candles at all. Still, I say this is an excellent idea for evening weddings. Reply Congrats! That is the prettiest brooch bouquet I have seen, love it! Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
