I think it could actually look good!  If the lights are dimmed a tiny bit, the candles will cast an ivory glow or shadows on each other.  How would you be able to tell??

I totally <3 the candlelight mood….

I think it could be really pretty.  I had actually considered something similar.  The contrast will be subtle, but should just add an extra layer of detail in your design.  Go for it!

You know, you can get 72 votive candles for $25 at cudge.net. I bought mine from there. They have pillars inexpensively, as well; that way you wouldn’t have to worry about them matching. However, if it is still more cost effective to do it the way you stated, I truly doubt anyone will notice the color difference, especially when they are lit.

Definitely go for the mix. I say if the sizes are different, even better. The look will be rich and layered. Reusing instead of buying new is another plus. Sounds very pretty!

It would seem to me that if you have a large enough mix that you wouldn’t have to mix them on the individual tables.  meaning you could have all white on one table and all ivory on another…. those are the details that only you will know!! trust me guests can’t tell you the color of the carpet never the less if the candles are white or ivory!!!

What a smart idea!

I say mix it up! Once the candles are lit a difference won’t be as noticeable. Plus, who cares? You’re reusing which is so green and environmentally friendly!
