There’s something to say about a clustering of candles—the soft glow produced is enough to bring an intimate atmosphere to any event space. Whether they’re pillars, tapers, or votive candles, mixing and matching sizes adds dynamism to centerpieces, aisles and anywhere else your client chooses to use them.
Read on to see some of our favorite uses of candle clusters!
Here, a mixture of pillar candles and votive candles dress up a ceremony aisle for a magical effect. Simple vases shield the flames while letting the candles’ beauty speak for itself.
Need a way to define a space? Look no further than an elaborate display of candles to tell guests exactly where the dance floor or the processional entrance is. Various heights give the arrangement depth and will look breathtaking once the sun goes down.
Who said candle clusters have to be large? A few simple pillars can dress up any sweetheart table, bar or food station – the minimalist feel is perfect to add a special touch to smaller areas.
Clustering isn’t just for pillars either—tapers and votives can share in the fun as well! Blending different shades and heights of tapers brings a dreamy, ethereal vibe to the table whereas clustering votive candles in mixed holders can be quirky or romantic—it depends what type of candleholders you opt for!
No matter what style you chose, be sure to check with the venue for any open flame restrictions and keep safety in mind first, especially if there are children in attendance. If open flames don’t seem like a great option, these arrangements can be easily redone with LED candles and look just as gorgeous—minus the flame!
