Choosing the colour of candlestick for your wedding

One of the most important things to consider when selecting a candlestick for your wedding centrepiece is its colour. Not only will this help to add some visual interest to your table, but it can also help to tie in with the theme of your wedding. If you're looking for a specific colour, be sure to ask your stylist and florist about availability. Another great way to use a candlestick in your wedding is to highlight flowers in your centrepiece. This can be done by placing the candlestick on top of the flower, or by placing it next to the flower stem.
