When you hear the word “candelabra,” a Renaissance scene typically comes to mind – narrow, winding corridors and women in long, full gowns hastening through a stone castle with a branched candlestick in hand for light. If you’re planning on conceptualizing your big day around a similar romantic theme, you may already have considered adding candelabra into your décor. However, these opulent objects work well in a variety of wedding motifs.
Candelabra are more versatile than you may believe – you can dress them up, or down, in an array of styles. In today’s weddings, it isn’t uncommon to see a candelabrum taking the place of a large vase, holding up a cluster of bright perennials in the center of each reception table. Some brides and grooms string gems and crystals across their candelabra to create a more royal feel for their celebration. You can modernize these grand sources of light by selecting clear candelabra or those in interesting geometric shapes. These lovely focal points can take the form of nearly any design concept you may desire.
