So…I’m having my wedding in a beautiful historic hotel in D.C. in July. Our ceremony is at noon, but it’s in the bottom level of the hotel, so I can pretty much do any kind of decor that I want. I love the idea of a candlelight ceremony (with the chandeliers dimmed, but not so dark that the video is blurry), and am constantly trying to figure out how to line the aisles.
I really love this photo:
Do you all think that twigs sort of go against the whole summer theme? My wife is from Oregon, and very outdoorsy. We’re having a tree on our invitations, so I thought this could tie in. However, we’re not really having rustic elements in the wedding, so…
Any advice welcome!

I think its fine to use that anytime of the year and think it will be very pretty and tie in nicely to your invitations! You could also use them as centerpeices to make double use of them bc they would also be pretty on the tables!
Were you just lining the aisles with them?

@KelannaDC: You could also do the same idea only use submerged flowers instead of twigs.

@weddingbound: We were just lining the aisles with them. I got into a buying fit, and bought 55 cylinder vases of varying heights, which I think would be perfect for/with floating candles. We spoke with our videographer AFTER I made the purchase, and he stressed that if the venue is too dark, the video will come out grainy (which I don’t want), but I also don’t want him to have a bright light shining on us.
@julies1949: I thought about submerged flowers, but decided on twigs because we can get them for free out of the backyard of a friend. 🙂
