I'm a little bit afraid that my candle-lighting helpers are going to off me after the wedding. In addition to the many (many) votives for the barn beams and tables, I'd like to light the bannisters to the balcony. (Hay loft?)
Here's one level of the bannister. There's another where the photographer is standing. I like the light aspect of the Christmas lights, but I'm not a big fan of Christmas lights at any time but Christmas. And no, you cannot convince me that they're "fairy lights." Those are different.
(Source)So, more candles? I really like this, with the different jars and lipped votive holders.
And these, which might be baby food jars. Did you know that you can buy clean, empty baby food jars on eBay? Seriously, someone will sell you anything there. Incredible.
I'm not sure how to attach them to the bannister, though. Giant twist-ties? Ribbon? Pipe cleaners? (Of course you remember pipe cleaners.) I am less concerned with the aesthetics of attachment than I am with my bridesmaids not killing me before the honeymoon, so I'd have to choose ease over beauty if there's a choice to be made.
