Candles can be amazing when used as aisle decor. We love the image above, from, where dozens of candles have been placed in glass containers alongside fresh bouquets and used to line the aisle. The result is a wonderfully elegant and impressive display and a soft, romantic glow.

Another amazing idea is to use candles to light the stairs for a wedding. In the image above, from, hundreds of candles have been used on the stairs of the venue, with just the small path to the door left open. The effect is striking and very romantic.
