Long gone are the days of large, arched candelabras setting the stage for nearly every wedding ceremony for a decade; but that doesn’t mean the wedding staple of the 1990s is forever buried beneath bolts of taffeta and yards of garland. In 2016 we are seeing those bold, metallic pieces reinvented as gorgeous additions to centerpieces and buffet tables.Heather & Wes-355

Whether you have them dripping with diamonds like this So Cal hotel wedding, or have them wrapped in greenery  or florals for your outdoor ceremony, candelabras in both brass, silver and rose gold are making beautiful headway this wedding season in all venue types! With lush, full tablescapes, the presence of a hard surface really completes the look. And, when those candles are lit, the ambiance of the entire room becomes even more magical! Welcome back, candelabra, welcome back.
