One of my Brides came to me with a decor idea for her wedding and asked for my help. She wants to put candle lit luminaries down the isle of her wedding ceremony. Gorgeous right! Now, the dilemma for me was to figure out how to give her a custom monogrammed luminary that, A) won't burn the place down, and B) actually have the design show through. Being the DIY girl that I am, I took this project on with open arms, even though I have never made these before, I am certain they will turn out spectacular and be an amazing addition to her wedding.

Check out these different types of luminaries... you can use them for table number signs, simple decor placed around your venue, down the isle, and even at each table in a cluster of different heights for added ambiance! Depending on the type of luminary, whether it's glass or paper you can use standard white tea lights or battery operated tea lights. Wish me luck ladies! Pictures of the finished product to follow...


  1. What a great idea!
    I love the damask ones!
    This would be perfect for Theatrical Bride!

  2. Gotta share this with our Glen Foerd Mansion and Knowlton Mansion brides! I always love to see the luminaria lining the dramatic driveways leading to the mansion! Sets the right ambience as soon as you pul in the driveway. Perfect way to add a welcoming warmth on chilly fall and winter nights!
