Unique Wedding Idea: Creative Lighting and Décor

Now here's a bright idea: lighting that not only illuminates your space but also adds plenty of decorative flourish. Check out these brilliant how-tos.

Candlelight brings a magical warmth to the ceremony site. Place votives all over for a welcoming glow, and flank the aisle and vow area with sturdy enclosed lanterns; avoid low, open flames anyplace where people may be.

Tip: If your venue doesn't allow open flames, use battery-operated tea lights—some even flicker like actual candles.
