2) Decorative lights on the tables between the flower arrangements

3) Lights that look like candles on the table and at the entrance
If you don't want flowers on the tables, but candles, this idea can work for you. To make use of the lights that are similar to candles. It looks similar to candles but is making use of batteries or electrical power.
These lights can make a huge difference in the atmosphere of a room. Especially, if you are putting some of these lights in the path at the entrance of the reception as well. Small flowers or other decorations between these lights can give your guest a magical setting.
