Candles - We all love them, right? At Farm & Fields, we love candles in all shapes and varieties, however, it is important to know a few things.
1) First, find out if your venue allows open flames. If they do excellent; if not, consider LED lights.
- LED lights have come a long way in appearance. We use LED's when a venue does not allow open flames.
5) Many caterers, florists, and event planners will offer candle rentals in their packages. u plan on decorating the aisle with candles considers the following:
2) Make sure you check the width of the aisle if you plan to use open flames. There is nothing worse than a bridesmaids' dress getting caught on a candle placed on the ground.
3) We always recommend using floating tealights on aisles. If anyone happens to knock them over, then they are immediately extinguished by the water in the candles.
4) If you love the look of candles on your reception tables, we recommend using a variety of heights to give texture and depth to your tables.
5) Many caterers, florists, and event planners will offer candle rentals in their packages. We recommend clients purchase their own. Why? -The cost of renting the candles can be equivalent to actually purchasing your own.
6) If you buy your candles, begin purchasing them incrementally in the year leading up to your wedding.
7) Amazon is a great place to purchase bulk candles. We recommend Richland candles and candle cylinders. They come in bulk sets of 36 - 40 candles.
8) Lastly, confirm with your event planner or florist how many candles you will need per table. It helps to have a professional break-down the number of candles you need to get exactly the look you want.
