I think matching would make them look better, not worse.

I would also try to paint them the same colour. Can you buy one and try on first, just to see what it looks like? Then if you hate it, you won’t have wasted the money.

@kperry0427:  I think it would look nice to have them in black. It would look nice to vary the other. But if you want everything to match they would look good that way as well.

I think lanterns can look very elegant!  I think the key is lots of romantic lighting to give that elegance to it!

I think either the black or white would look nice – Both colors go with anything, so I don’t think you could go wrong if you did either of those, but white certainly reads “wedding” more than black.  I also don’t think that spray painting them champagne would look bad either, but it depends on how matchy-matchy you want it.  I agree with @eocenia; You could even buy three – one in black, one in white, and spray paint another champagne – and set them up next to the candelabras to see what you like the most.  I wouldn’t worry that people would know they’re spray painted.  As long as you do it carefully and make sure it’s completely coated, no one will know the difference. 

Peach flowers would look beautiful as well if you decide to nix the lantern idea ๐Ÿ™‚  Good luck!

Honestly I don’t htink you can really go wrong. Black and white are nice neutral colors and champagne would tie in with the rest of the decor. My only thought is that black or champagne might make them stand out a little more from the white tablecloths.

@kperry0427:  Hi!  I am using Candelabras too for some of my centerpieces!  My colors are royal blue and silver so I opted to spray paint the candelabras silver.  My fiance painted them for me over the weekend. He even put a clear coat on them once they were dry.  They came out GREAT!  You can’t even tell they are spray painted plus once they are in the reception area with the candles lit, it will be kinda dark and you will definitely not tell!!  I attached some pics so you can see!!

@kperry0427:  Oh! and I think you should spray paint the lanterns as well!  I think all of us brides know that we paint, cut, decorate and stress over how to make all the details come together.  They are not going to think “Oh My! She painted the lanterns too” …I think they will say “Oh, that was a great idea!”

I would leave the lanterns black and add some  gold mercury glass (which will read as champagne)  votive holders around it .

@kperry0427:  Yay!!  I am glad you are deciding to paint the lanterns.  Send us Bee’s pics!!!  I will say this… it will come out a different shade of champagne since they are black to begin with but I think it will give it a darker, nicer tone.  If you don’t like it, you can start with primer.  Hope this helps you!

Thanks for the sweet comment…  This is only the beginning of my ideas I have.  Can’t wait till it is all pulled in together!
