To me, there is nothing more romantic than a candlelit wedding reception. Today I’ve found some images that I hope will inspire you to put your own twist on candlelight.

I love the use of colored egg shells in lieu of traditional glass votive holders. How pretty would these be for a spa-inspired wedding?

I found these cute blackboard candles on Design*Sponge. They would work for table numbers, spelling out “welcome” on the guest book table, on the cake table with your initials, I could go on, but you get the idea.

Trees and candlelight  are two of my favorite things. These always look pretty in the ceremony area or in key areas in the reception like above the cake table.

I love this stunningly simple table-scape. It’s perfect for the bride who’s not big on flowers but still wants something pretty on the table.

I like how these candles are mismatched and imperfectly arranged.

I love using candles to define walkways in a wedding. It sets the right mood and leads your guests gracefully to the cocktail area, dinner, or even, the after party.

I love the cocktail table stuffed with lemons, did you get a shot after half or all the glasses had gone?
Cool ideas.

Great images. Nothing set the mood and ambiance more than candles
