First of all…we’re wedding date twins!!! 🙂


Secondly…I LOVE what you’re thinking!  So romantic, and soft, elegant and formal.  I think it will compliment the space beautifully.


1. Too fussy?  Not at all, for the large room you’re using.

2. I thought of maybe running two or three ivory ribbons down the middle of the long banquet tables instead of scattering rose petals in between the candles. Thoughts? What would look better?

LOVE the ribbon idea much better than the rose petals.  Before I got to this section of your post, I was already thinking that!  Either that, or nothing, because I think the centerpieces you’re envisioning will make a statement all on their own.

3. Should i put the pillar candles in glass hurricanes, or should I just leave them as-is?  

Leave them as is, especially if you are using candelabras.  Hurricane glass would be too much, and kind of fight the look you’re going for, IMO.

4. Are candelabras passe? I love the romantic look they create, especially since we’re having an evening reception in November, but don’t know if some girls might dub them with the “t” word…

NO!! Candelabras are AWESOME…especially for the feel you’re going for.  I say, go for it! 


SO BEAUTIFUL!  Best of luck on the last three months of planning! 🙂
