My Wedding: Tiffany Jeans of Curio Noir
With weddings, I think the idea of ‘til death do us part is so beautiful. For my wedding to Andy, I thought a way to convey this beautiful message to our guests was to give them a skull candle – not only as a symbol of our day, but also as a token of our gratitude for them coming to be a part of our day. For me, gifting our family and guests with the time and effort that was put into making these, presenting them with care and a hand written note was more important than just gifting something. These were keepsakes, small objects of art, thoughtful gifts wrapped in tulle and ribbon. As they were individually named, they were also the place settings. We used the same skull candles in gold and black, entwined in giant white lisianthus flowers, placed under different sized bell jars as part of our table settings at Clooney restaurant. Guests dined to candle light with a selection of music from our favourite artists. Still to this day I get comments from people who came to our wedding who loved the feeling created for the day. I believe it had a lot to do with the candles.
I personally think at the reception with the table settings you can really explore your creativity, truly personalise the day, make it such an amazing experience and memory for everyone involved. Table settings should be beautiful whether they are inside or out. Regardless of the ambience you may be going for, candles are a sure way to create a warming, welcoming feel in any room. If indoors, using a scented candle will help to create a unique and special mood. When choosing a scent for the day, I would recommend it be something that is a direct reflection of how the couple would like the guests to feel. Some notes can uplift, invigorate, calm…. At night, there is nothing more inviting and flattering than eating and socialising to candle light.
