It’s a little churchy for me. Will your venues allow candles would be the first thing I would check.

I like the idea were doing lanterns with candles lit inside.

@glitter86:  Honestly, it reminds me of a candlelight vigil.  I wanted to like it, but it seems weird.  Particulary in the second picture… Sorry!

I think they look a bit odd. Sorry. If you were looking for a cheaper alternative to flowers why not try silk flowers? Lots of bees on here use them, and they look amazing in photos.

Sorry, I think it looks really strange.

It looks a little bit odd to me too. And dangerous! (My hair caught on fire once from a candle, so I’m sure I’m alone on that one here)

I think it would look nicer with small bouquets or fake flowers…I’m not a fan of the candles

I likes the candle idea but I was vetoed. Instead my bridesmaids are carrying purses. This is one I made.

My Maid/Matron of Honor carried one of those glass candleholders- (her gift) -with a bouquet inside, to be used as a hanging candle holder later. 🙂

The candles look pretty strange to me!  I see a few others said this already, but a friend of mine had her bridesmaids carry clutches and it looked cute!  She gave them as their bridesmaid gift.

What about pomanders? Or one big flower?

I’m too traditional to ever give that a fair chance…I just see bride and bridesmaids with flowers.
