Another way to use votives as part of the decorations, is to place it in a dome. Select a small terrarium bowl. Choose one that is not too small, because you will want to place some cacti, flowers or greenery in there. Add a few shells in there, if you want to create a beach theme. Place the votive candles at the center. And you have eco-friendly themed centerpiece ready!
Flowers always add a touch of grace to any ceremony, especially so at a wedding. Here is a way to combine the grace of flowers with the elegance of candles. Place decorative rocks, stones or gems on the bottom of the Votive Candles holder and fill the remainder with very small flowers. You can use clay miniature calla lilies. Place the votive holders all around the venue.
Votive Candles holder need not be restricted to the indoors. They can also be used to add to the ambience outside. Choose a decorative lantern that goes with the theme of your wedding. Place a votive candle inside the lantern. Place the lantern as your centerpiece. If the reception is being held outdoors, string the lanterns with the votives in trees leading up to the reception area.
Why limit the candles to being used as decor? They can also be used as wedding favors. By adding a bride and groom sticker to the votive, you have turned them into favors. A way to personalize them would be to have the date engraved on the votive. Or add a meaningful poem to the votive holder and glue in place. These can be presented the candles to your guests as wedding favors.
While candles are pretty and add to the ambience of the wedding ceremony, make sure you use them wisely. If your ceremony includes children in the guest list, be sure that the candles are placed in an area that the children cannot reach. Make sure that the candles are not exposed to a draft.
