One way to save money on your reception: candlelight.

Candlelight can add so much drama to a room and if your budget is tight, one way to save money is to cut out centerpieces and add lots of candles. Alternatively, you can sprinke a few buds or petals around with the candles.

You can use a single floral stem and varying sizes of candles for a more eclectic look. The arrangement in photo below would also look gorgeous on a welcome table.

Whether your budget allows for lavish floral centerpieces or not, adding candles is one sure way to add beauty and drama.

I really like the idea of Candles as decor!

Did I miss anything?

I love to post inspired ideas and photos from other blogs and the web. I try my best to give credit where it's due, but if I miss something, please let me know. And, if you want something taken down, I can do that. No problemo.
