10 Tips to Create Romance With Wedding Candle Reception Lighting
Think of your dream romantic interlude. Does it involve a dimly lit room surrounded by candlelight, champagne, rose petals, chocolate covered strawberries and music? If so, you're not alone. Whether we read it in a book, see it in a movie or view a picture of a "romantic evening", the media often reflects this magical image to us. If you would like to create that same ambiance for your wedding, you can do so with a few simple (and cheap!) purchases of wedding candle favors and some accessories.
Here are some suggestions to create the perfect atmosphere for your wedding or event:

7) Remember to keep the lighting of the venue dim. The less direct light, the more romantic the location. If there is a fireplace in the location, make sure that is lit as well. Also be sure to speak to the DJ or Band and inform them of your decor. Perhaps you can have dim lights for your entrance and dinner, followed by a more upbeat lighting scheme for after dinner dancing.

9) Finally, check with your venue and make sure that you can light candles within. Some venues do not allow candles to be lit due to fire codes and other locations may allow it. Before starting to plan such a wondrous event make sure it can be created just the way you want it!
