I am looking to do candelabras at my february wedding. I have looked everywhere and was able to find these amber/gold ones (which I love but are very style specific) and I’m not sure where to take the design theme now??
any thoughts on what colors would work if I use these? should I include flowers??
I love purple, and am now thinking maybe plum/amber/gold?? but how to pull in the plum is the question…
Would love your feedback on the attached pictures.
Also I attached a picture of the ballroom, from someone else’s wedding – i think the flowers fight too much with the chandelier (thoughts??)

Welcome to the hive!
First off do you even want flowers? I know plenty of brides that are not flower people and that is perfectly fine. If you would rather not include them I think you could dress up the table around the candelabra to tie everything together.
However, if you would like to use flowers a few things come to mind. What about using flowers on the candelabra instead of candles (you could use tea lights on the tables)? You could use the candelabra as is and place some low laying flower arrangements around the base or you could always combine the two into something like this:

@SandDollar: hi sanddollar! you hit the nose on the head…. not a “flower” girl at all… but don’t want to dissapoint… also don’t want to spend money on it if i don’t want it and i would probably go cheap so they really wouldnot be worth it.
i also find that i like the candelabra with flowers but they seem to fight too much in the room.
thought i could do some candelabras and some flower tables.
but would prefer to do candelabras… what’s your thought on the candelabra itself? and how will it dictate my color/theme…

@AliciatheantiBride: Budget was going to be one of my questions. If you really want to a few flowers (or feel you should) I would either do some tables with flowers and some with candelabras or just have the candelabras on the table and use flowers elsewhere. Maybe by the bar, seating chart, guest book, etc (if your having these things).
The candelabras you posted are enough to stand alone IMO. I would tie the purple in elsewhere like with the napkins and linens. Could you play around with some purple and amber tablescloths and overlays? The combination of color and texture could be an interesting effect and pull in the rich understones of your candelabras.
I tried to find a picture of purple and amber linens together but couldn’t. This is the best I could come up with. I know they are more gold and the second one is very bold, but you kinda get the idea:
