…so I don’t have photos, but I have been wanting other people’s opinions. On our tables I have centrepieces that are square mirrors, and wanted to use vintage looking silver candelabras on them with a few short crystal vases with some blooms in each. It looked so good at the decor place, but we are having a summer wedding – it doesn’t get dark until almost 9PM. So, is this odd to have candles lit while its still light out? I guess you wont really get the effect until dark and we’ll likely be in the other room for the dancing?
Ack, thought I finally had it figured out!

Hmmm, I think candles look most beautiful when it’s darker or low lighting. That sounds really pretty but ya you may not have the effect your going for when its light out. Can you do a mock up and see what you think? I don’t think it would be weird though, if the other things your placing with it are visially appealing too it will probably be fine

I was in a very similar position to you, and ended up going with non candle centrepieces. I figured that people will only really notice the decor when they walk in the room, and candles in the day time won’t give the “wow” effect.
Your centrepieces sound like there’s a lot more than just the candles though, so I think you’ll be ok. Elaborate candelabras will stand out, with or without lit candles. And when the sun goes down, and people are returning to their seats for a break from their dancing, there’ll be a nice glow.

I looked for a few photos… they really can look amazing still in the daylight but they won’t stand out on the light alone so as long as you have some more going on you’ll be fine and they’ll look amazing!
