Can you tell us more about the feel of your wedding?


Is it rustic?


Casual and summery?


Can you tell us more about the colors you’re using, the venue it’ll be at, time of day, etc?

Hey how about beautiful tall wood candle sticks with a pomander (made of tissue) with crystals handing from it and votive around.  You can have some with the candle sticks and some with candelabras.  You can paint the candle sticks to match your colors or make them black and give the pop of color with the pomander.  Just some thoughts.  Your venue sounds gorgeous.

In keeping with the style of the venue chandaliers I was thinking that maybe you could go to

http://www.shopwildthings.com and buy some of the hanging balls that look alot like what the chandalier’s have. Then maybe use a “lamp” and hang then from the ridge of the shade.

On the right of the site is a column called Real glass decor. You’ll find the chandaliers and other things on that page. I have bought many things from this company and they are VERY good quality and their service is excellant. They also have many ideas that may spark something for you.

Hope this is helpful.

Woah, those chandeliers are ridiculous!  You could kind of recreate them on a smaller scale for your centerpieces.  It’d be fun but still elegant, which seems like the style of your venue.

Here’s a how-to: http://www.oncewed.com/7370/diy/decor/diy-rock-candy-chandelier/  You could always replace the bows with ribbons in one of your colors.  You’d have to find some kind of stand for it, like a tall candlestick.  It’d definitely be funky, and you can add a bunch of votives around it since you like candles.


You could also just do a cluster of different height/width candles in your colors.


I think the Chinese lantern/candle centerpiece picture I attached above could also work for your wedding.  A lot of people DIY centerpieces with crystals hanging from manzanita branches, but that’s so tired and overdone to me.  I’ll keep thinking about it and I’ll pop back in if I come up with any ideas. 🙂

Here are a couple of thoughts:


These both reminded me of the chandaliers.  A twist on that could be something like this:


And last but not least:


Good luck finding exactly what fits you!  It makes it very worthwhile when you do.  🙂
