Candles
Candles add romance and beautiful soft light to any wedding reception or dinner. Feature ornate candelabras to give your wedding a vintage feel, or go with classic tapers for a simply elegant look. Check the vintage and antique shops to buy unique candle holders, or meet with your local wedding decorators to rent their items and get even more fun ideas!

Statement floral wall
If you want plenty of wedding florals without it seeming boring or predictable, have your florist take things up a notch. Give him or her the creative liberty to create an artistic floral wall.  It’ll make for some stunning photos. Your wedding will be all over social media just for this…don’t forget the neon sign! ProTip! If your budget doesn’t allow for a wall of fresh flowers, check with your local wedding decorators, they might have a fake one you can rent for the day. You can also ask your photographer if they have a floral backdrop you can use for your ceremony and photo-ops later, and if they don’t have one, just order one online that you can sell after your wedding!
