This way the ceremony will have a very romantic feel o it not to mention a splendid odor due to the flowers you will be using. You may also make some edible treats to use as centerpieces. Bake something at home using some online recipes or some family recipes. You could easily make some muffins which can be displayed on some platters or you could try some cookies.
These can be shaped based on your theme, for instance if you are having a winter inspired theme then the cookies could look like some snowflakes or some bells. For a beach inspired theme you could bake some starfish inspired cookies and so on. Sprinkle them with some colored icing and they will surely look very tasty and appealing to the guests. Candles are also very useful when you wish to decorate the entire location of your wedding. You can set them up all around the location and really illuminate it.
Use some pillar candles at the doorways or some torches instead. You can find everything that you need at online shops and stores.
