Sparkling Swarovski crystals embedded in wedding bouquets and floral table centrepieces can light up a table setting in a very classy and discreet way.

Al fresco dining at a destination wedding doesn't get much better than a table setting by the sea where the sound of the waves, hurricane candle holders lit up on tables and fairy lights strung across the slender trunks of trees work their magic on the beach. This freewheeling, casual setting is perfect for loved ones who can dress down or up depending on their mood before tucking into seafood delights and scintillating conversation.

10. Dainty Dinners
Votive candles get our vote when it comes to ease especially when you want to create a natural light setting. Perfect for outdoor wedding setups, candles can be placed in cutting chai tumblers and even teapot vases. Try and opt for transparent holders which will reflect the candlelight and give off a beautiful glow. Pair these with elegant table runners and floral bouquet for extra glamour.
