>Historically, candles have always played an important role in wedding ceremonies and their celebrations afterward.
Whether today’s wedding couples want to use candles for meaningful cultural rituals, personal symbolism, or simply to create an enchanting and romantic atmosphere, the desire for their use remains strong.
As a candle artist who provides candles for weddings all over the country, here’s some critical planning advice: Ask the venue if they allow “open flame” candles! If they do, be sure to ask: Are there any restrictions on types of candles or how many are on each table? Is a city fire permit required and who is responsible for applying for it?
Because of the risk of fire with open flames amongst lots of people partying, many cities require venues to comply with local fire dept regulations about candle use in public gatherings. You don’t want to buy 5o pillar candles, only to find out as they’re being placed on the reception tables that they have to be in hurricane holders or you can’t light them!
Many locations allow any type of candles as long as they are in glass or other type holders that completely shield the flame from coming into contact with flammable items (the holder usually needs to extend 1-2″ above the flame).
Shown throughout this post are some excellent candle holder choices from artists on Etsy. Just click on a photo (linked to their shop) to see the variety each artist offers.
In future posts I’ll give more wedding candle tips and advice.
I’ll share info on candles for your ceremony, reception, gifts to your attendants and family, and in decorating your new home.
