Tapered candles are baaaacck….
Okay, so even if you’re not a fan of Phantom of the Opera or even the 1980’s version of Mozart, you have to appreciate the “ba-boom” of this look. I (Stacy) chose this for my own wedding, even if I had to choose those drip-free candles. Totally worth it! Nothing screams femininity and romance like this look. Don’t want them EVERYWHERE? Go with candelabras on half of your guest tables (or just the head table, or food tables, etc.) and say “oh yes I did” when you enter the room. They can stretch your floral budget, and, if you choose a coordinator that knows how to negotiate, possibly beat it with the right rental company.
Think it’s a bit too historic? Go with modern or contemporary floral centerpieces elsewhere, or in combination with them. This look is amazing with damask prints (which you can use in linen, on menu cards or table numbers/names), lace and silky fabrics and is best when used indoors. How to coordinate this look with your ceremony? With tall (5′ or taller) candelabras or smaller sizes (3′) like these shown on columns.
