Good morning girl!  Now we keep bumping into each other!

Is it a venue or a private place?  Could you ask the facilitator or owner?  If not, perhaps a close friend that is not in the Wedding Party could leave after the ceremony and go straight there to light them?

@Mrs.tobe: Is there anyone working at your reception that you could ask to do this?  A wedding coordinator?  If not, I would ask a friend to do it.  Just ask one of your friends boyfriend or girlfriend to do it.

Are we having the same wedding? 🙂

I have the same plans as you for a multitude of mason jars and candles. My mom’s friend who excels at decorating will be arranging and lighting the candles for me. I’m going to get her a nice gift or a gift card to a nice restaurant to thank her. Is there someone who could do something like that for you? An aunt, family friend, etc.? I would have to pay my venue a special set-up fee if I wanted them to do it for me.

I agree with the PPs.  See if any of the workers would be able to take care of it.  Otherwise ask a friend or family member.

Are the ceremony and reception back-to-back where the person would definately miss part of the ceremony?

If you have a receiving line after the ceremony, I’m sure one or two people wouldn’t mind missing that….

Do you have a caterer? A lot of times they’ll do things like that for you. It sounds beautiful! Such a good idea to have branches and votives.

@Mrs.tobe: If you are asking a friend or an Aunt to do it, have them go like 5 minutes ahead. Maybe they can bring someone with them to help.   A little cousin would love that job!
