9 Candle Wedding Decorations To Make Your Big Day Brighter

Candles have an appeal of their own. They aren’t in a hurry and they’re far from being modern, yet their minimalistic design adds a sense of calm and sensuality to the decor. It isn’t a stretch to day either, that lighting plays a huge part in the decoration for any event, and when looking to add a touch of sophistication, elegance, class and above all – a romantic charm – to proceedings, candles are the tools to do the trick. It is, after all, why we’ve persisted with them for so long, and continue to do so even today. So, if you are on the lookout from some ingenious candle wedding decorations, you’ve landed on the right page. We at TBB have fashioned a list of 10 spectacular and simple DIY candle wedding decor ideas to make your big day brighter, quite literally.
