For wedding centerpieces that spill with drama and opulence, line your reception tables with clusters of candlesticks. Simple to execute, yet boldly visual in a dimly lit room, candles are perfect for uncomplicated styling that still punctuates a table.
Keep your overall wedding aesthetic in mind when choosing candlesticks. Clean, minimalistic styles like glass candleholders work beautifully for modern weddings. For more classical celebrations hire vintage candlesticks mixed with candelabra in brass or tarnished silvers (avoiding anything too shiny, that looks cheaply made). When using round reception tables, trail candlestick clusters in a circular shape as seen at Saint Laurent.
They key is in your quantities. So if candles are your focal point and other table styling is minimal, arrange your candles en mass. Order sparingly in bulk so you can play with dramatic clusters that span the length of your table and create a magical ambience.
