There are a lot of flameless candles out there.  I was at a wedding last December and they had some flameless candles that I didn’t even realize were flameless until  I looked really close.  There are a lot of styles out there.  That should give you the candle look you wanted without that actual burning candles.


PS – YAY winter weddings!

Twig lights would be great for a” ski-lodge feel” wedding- the rustic look with lights.

or,  ice crystal branches with hanging votive holders with an LED light. If you use opaque votive holders, your guests won’t even know it’s not a real candle.

That’s too bad about the candles! I have flameless candles all around my house and love them! I think they look really cool. It gives the feel that real candles do. I got them at Costco. Check them out! The twigs are cool too! 

Good luck!

@BruBru:  I had the exact same problem! I know how you feel, it was really fustrating, because i had this fantastic picture in my head, and then i had to start from scratch.  Our colours were origionally ice blue, silver, antique rose and white, but then we thought that was too much, so we narrowed it to silver, antique rose and white. We’re having roses as the flowers in pink and and white, and everything else is ice themed. Instead of candles we’ve booked 15 of these Crystal table chandeliers: http://www.essentialweddinghire.com/Crystal-Table-Chandeliers(2710879).htm 

And we’re having fake snow (like you get in shop windows)
And possibly an Ice Bar too:

This is what I used for my Dec. 31 wedding, you could replace the candles with led candles  I got the branches at save on crafts!  They have great stuff and great prices.  We also got married in a lodge type building!

@BruBru:  If my venue vetoed my candles, I would just use LED ones 🙂
