Another interesting option is to display photos of the couple throughout the room, from the time they were small to the present, to reflect on the passages in their lives. Of course, this will require some collaboration with the respective families, but it’s so easy to copy photos now. At the end of the party, the photos can be gathered up, put in an album and presented to the couple as a cherished keepsake.

add mini lights, strategically placed, perhaps around windows, can put the sparkle into the party. Choose clear bulbs if the rest of your ornamentation have plenty of color: aim for soft light to enhance the mood rather than the flashing, in-your-face variety that can be so annoying and distracting.
use the colors in candles Candles are another great way to go, especially if your event is scheduled for the evening. Of course, you will want to set your table with candles along with flowers to enhance the dining experience if you are planning a sit-down dinner or a buffet. Choose tapers for the table, and look to selecting candles of different heights and thickness for massing on coffee tables in the party room. If you have selected a spa theme, with gifts to match, then scented candles and the sound of running water from table fountains can add to the ambience. If you are concerned that some of the guests have allergies, then avoid the scented varieties. Turn down the lights and let the romantic glow of candles set the mood of romance and mystery

A Basket of Candles
For [insert Bride's name]
A basket of candles that come in a pair
In all different colors, for you two to share
The white ones burn first
They are wrapped in white lace
To celebrate your first married night
In your new chosen place.
The green pair is taller, and also much thinner
Burn with the first company, you have over for dinner.
The dark blue candles are for after your first fight
Use them to burn while making up all night.
Pink candles set the mood and pave the way
For your first married Valentine’s Day.
Now, when your first year of marriage is through
The cream anniversary pair, will light for you two.
Red candles aflame, both your futures are bright
Celebrate promotions you’ve worked toward with all of your might.
By this time we hope, maybe, just maybe
You can light the purple ones, on the birth of your baby.
And just when you thought you’d put these away
Take the light blue ones out-for your fifth anniversary day.
Now just one more pair left - for the big 2 5
The anniversary pair that will keep your love alive.
Congratulations [insert Bride and Groom's names]
On the start of your forever
May the two of you always be happy together
And burn these candles
Just the way we said
But please don’t forget-blow them out before bed!
Have a blast............ congrates to the couple.
