I really wanted to do lots of candles for our rehearsal dinner but didn’t end up getting to it. Here is a picture that I found and really liked…

the first picture is from my friends wedding and the second is what i am going to use. for mine, i will also be scattering rose petals around it and possibly more candles, i still need to test how it looks.

I’m currently working on this project!  I’ve purchased the hurricanes (40…yikes!), and I’m debating how to do it!  I’m thinking of 2 different options:

1)  tall pillar candle with rose petals

2)  floating candle with pearls on the bottom

I have pictures on my laptop, but I’m at work now, so I’ll try to see if I can post my inspiration pictures later.  My only concern is that the pillar candles might get too expensive, so I definitely need to price out the options!  I’ve also thought of alternating between the 2.

I apologize if this is huge… but these are the candle centerpieces I used. I meant for them to be set up in a little more of a triangle configuration, but I thought they were really pretty, just the same. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have decided to make my own candles.  I really loved the idea of having multiple non-matching candles fixed around my larger floral center pieces and thought of buying many glasses (champaign, martini, margarita, beer mugs, tea cups, etc.) to make them.  I bought candle wax, wick, and dye from an online store and made them out of my garage.  It was fairly easy to do (it’s best to have a partner to help though…thanks mom!!!).  I don’t have a picture of my candles arranged nicely on a table, but I do have a picture of a few of my homemade candles drying (FYI colored straws were used to hold wick up while they dryed.  They will have since been removed and wick cut to size.)
