Chandelier trend #Decor#Invitations#Wedding trends#decor#invitations Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Apr 7 2008) Ariel findyourafterglow Chandeliers are showing up in indie weddings lately — and I don't just mean literally. I mean sure, there was this amazing (and amazingly expensive) display from photographer Elizabeth Messina's wedding. I also love these shots of chandeliers in trees. But chandeliers are also showing up on invites, like the handmade ones here the left from Mary Katherine, these lovely invites from Etsy seller EnfinLaVoila, and these invites from Wedding Paper Divas. I think the real value in a fancy-ass chandelier comes from the contrast of all that frou-frou-ness in an unexpected environment, like this picture.
