Elegant church wedding candelabras can be decorated with a mass of
gorgeous flowers. When using fresh flowers, florists attach a cage or
Raquette to the center of the candelabra with either zip ties, wire or
chenille stems. The cages have small tabs with holes that make it easy
to attach the cage.
This arrangement is easier than it looks. Simply attach the soaked cage and quickly insert long pieces of greenery. Insert a few stems of flowers, such as these white Asiatic lilies and white cushion mums and you're set! If you want to save time on the wedding day, you can do the arrangement up ahead of time. Be sure to "pre-attach" the chenille stems for easier attachment when you get to the church.
Table candelabra can be decorated with flowers as well. Here, the
center candle was left out and a grande iglu attached with floral clay.
Since most arms on a standard candelabra can be moved, you can arrange
it several ways. Straight out, slanted or in a "V" shape. This arrangement contains lavender stock, soft orange roses, and leather leaf fern. It also has sprengeri fern - but I don't recommend it because it sheds so much. I would subsitute some other type of greenery if you want more than just the leather leaf.
Here a garland is zip tied and follows the spiral of the candles down.
Be sure to always protect the floor by laying down a clear sheet of
plastic to catch any candle wax drips. It's helpful to use professional
grade dripless candles.
