Less is more, they say. This certainly rings true when it comes to candles! Wedding décor is often elaborate and intricate, but we are here to show that simplicity is indeed the ultimate sophistication. These clean candle designs are perfect for the minimalist couple who wants to keep things simple, but that’s not to say they can’t be dressed up with other bold décor!

Who said mixing and matching can’t look clean and streamlined? Clustering similar candles of different sizes provides a magical and dynamic effect while still maintaining a beautiful simplicity. A blend of pillar and votive candles is a great combination for maximum effect.

An organized approach to pillar candles makes for the ideal lounge area. Although they will still provide the warmth and glow that candles are known and loved for, they are subtly placed out of the way to create a soft atmosphere for guests to enjoy themselves.

Neutrals are a great way to keep things simple – white and ivory candles are always especially popular with weddings and other special events as they go with virtually everything! Neutral candles allow the rest of the décor to carry the color palette while presenting them in soft and romantic lighting.

A long farmhouse table is the perfect place for elegant taper candles! Have you ever seen a romantic dinner without tapers? We didn’t think so – that is because they provide the perfect ambience for intimate conversation. It doesn’t require many for the full effect – we love how this table is lined with just a few cream-colored candles!
Candles are meant to provide soft and gentle lighting, so aim to keep it that way. Save the big and bold accents for floral arrangements, centerpieces and the like – your clients will love the effect!
