A dramatic effect for a late afternoon or evening wedding may be created with the flattering romantic glow of candles.
Candles can be burning as guests arrive, lit just before the mother of the bride is seated or lit by honored guests or an usher during the ceremony.
Some couples may wish to incorporate the lighting of the candles while at the altar by passing the flame between themselves, their families and the clergy. Do plan this beforehand.
Check the site where you plan to hold the ceremony to be sure there aren’t any fire regulations prohibiting candles.
Notify your florist – in addition to planning the floral arrangements, he will also be responsible for placing the candles in their holders. Candles should be long-burning as well as drip less.
Inform your photographer so he or she can arrange for proper lighting.
