Wedding Candle Holders

We have some beautiful wedding candle holder sets which include a pillar holder and two taper holders. The holder for the unity candle can be used with a wedding candle up to 4″ in diameter. The two matching taper holders should be used with taper candles with the standard 7/8″ diameter base. These unity candle holder sets are elegant yet simple enough to fit with any wedding theme. We also have brass and silver plated candle holders that are a single piece but will hold a unity candle and two taper candles. We have an affordable brass plated holder which can be used as either a taper holder or a pillar holder.  This reversible candle holder can be used with a pillar candle up to 3″ in diameter or a standard taper candle.  We are currently offering a buy 2 get 1 free deal on these holders for a limited time.  Put three of these together and you have a very nice looking set of holders for your wedding candles. If you haven’t already purchased your unity candles we have a nice selection of pre-made ones as well as some that can be personalized.

Be sure to see this episode and get some ideas on how our candles can add elegance and beauty to your wedding day.

New Candle Color

Mediterranean Blue floating candleWe have just added a brand new color to our unscented candle lines called Mediterranean Blue.  This is a hot new color for weddings and events.  We will be the Mediterranean Blue in the pillars, votives, tapers, and floating candles.

Blue is said to have a quite, relaxing effect so decorate with it in rooms where you want peace and serenity such as home offices or libraries.

This color also blends well with some of our other pastels like lime green or mango if you are going for a bright spring/summer look.

New Product Category

We have also added a number of new Unity Candle designs and some taper and pillar holder wedding sets.  If you have a wedding coming up or have friends who are engaged be sure to look at what we have.

Bridal Poem Candle Set

wedding poem taper setIn an earlier post about wedding ideas and bridal shower gifts we talked about a bridal poem that used taper candles to mark special events in a married couples life. Well, we figured that if we had listed a wedding poem that used candles and we make candles, maybe we should put a set of candles together to go with the poem. (I know, rocket science right) So we have just added a new taper candle set just to fit the bridal poem. The set only includes the taper candles so you will need some sort of basket and lace to make it pretty. If you want to gift some taper holders we have those too but they are sold separately. Let me know what you think. I think that this is a great idea for a wedding gift.

2009 Wedding Colors

soy candlesThe color trends for wedding decorations have been moving away from strictly white and ivory and more toward bold, vibrant colors. Some examples of these 2009 designer colors are hot pinks, bright oranges, tiffany blue, yellows, and purples. These fresh trendy colors help make the wedding atmosphere fun and bright. Use some modern accessories to give your wedding decor a classy touch. White and ivory decorations will always be part of wedding decorating but a splash of strategically placed color can have a really nice affect. The hardest part of adding these trendy colors to your wedding decor is not going overboard. You don’t want all the guests to need sunglasses just to find their tables. Of course if you are doing a tropical theme wedding then color is the order of the day. So there is occasion to have color as the bulk of the design, it’s your wedding do it your way. We have a very nice line of unscented candles available in these colors to help get the look you want. Start planning your wedding decorations with enough time to make sure you can get what you want, and remember to have fun.

Stimulate Your $ cent-es

In times of economical crisis, after the fears subside, people start to realize what’s really important. We start to enjoy the small things in life – a home cooked meal, time with loved ones, and we appreciate the things we have. Decorate your home even on a “shoe-string budget”. You can even use them as a functional light source. Get the most “bang for your buck”, using our affordable candles to stimulate your mind, body and spirit with warm, soothing, or invigorating candle fragrances.

Wedding Candle Ideas and Tips (part two)

wedding candle ideas
Scent or No Scent?

Don’t rule out scent at your wedding reception. Choose candles that have a fruit or food related fragrance, such as vanilla, chocolate, apples, or berries. Still think scent is not right for your wedding? Use unscented candles from our pillar, votive, floater, and taper lines.

The Perfect Color

Don’t stress if we don’t have your “perfect” color. The lights in reception rooms are usually dim. The color trends for this year are bold, exotic, and bright. Aqua, Hot pink, oranges, yellows and lime green are the colors for 2009! Don’t want to go too bold? Use these shades as a splash of color in your candle arrangements.

Destination wedding

Want a destination wedding, but guests can’t afford to travel? Make the destination your wedding theme. Use exotic, tropical colors in your wedding candles and accessories.

Pearls and Ribbons

Create candle designs that are truly your own and save cash at the same time! Craft Stores carry pearl pins that you can pin to your wedding candles, and attach a ribbon in your wedding colors.

Unique Tables

Not all of the table centerpieces need to be exactly alike. You can decorate with a set of 3 pillars on one table and on the next table have a bowl with floating candles. The use of reed diffusers as a centerpiece can add dimension that is visually and aesthetically stimulating.

Also, let those centerpieces do “double duty”. Designate someone to distribute them to special friends or relatives, or to hospitals, churches, or retirement homes when your event is over. You could use them as prizes given to winners of games played during the reception.

Varying heights

Use candles of different heights to make a statement. A mixed arrangement of pillar candles, of all different sizes make a spectacular look.

Finishing touches

Create your own table decorations for a one-of-a-kind wedding! Use stones, beaded garland, or dried flowers as a finishing touch to your centerpiece.

Favors and Gifts

Our candles are cost-effective, so consider purchasing one for each guest at your reception. Wrap them in tulle, or with raffia ribbon, and leave them at each person’s place setting.

If you are stumped when it comes to what to get your bridesmaids, consider the gift of candles! Personalize each candle with a photo of the happy couple, either alone or with that bridesmaid, or with the wedding date, invitation, or design of your choosing processed on each candle!

Honeymoon romance

One of the most romantic ways to begin your lives together is by the light of a candle. Toss a candle tin or some tealites into your suitcase! You will earn points with your partner!

IT’S YOUR WEDDING! DO IT THE WAY YOU WANT!
