Chandelier at a ceremony photos?

I am hoping some of you can help me out…our ceremony is set to take place outside.  The “altar” area has a simple fountain and two trees on either side flanking it.  I love the look of chandeliers.  But our ceremony is taking place during the day.  Would it be weird to have chandeliers during the day?  Also, does anyone have any photos of chandeliers being used at a ceremony site?  I would love to hang small ones in the trees.  I don’t know if it’s allowed yet, I asked my wedding planner but she hasn’t’ returned my call yet. 


Any other ideas on what I can do to decorate the site?

How about kissing balls (i.e., flower pomanders) hanging from the trees?  Here's a link to a great example:

The great thing is that the kissing balls can be re-used at the reception.

I saw pretty lanterns hanging in the trees at this wedding

Scroll down to the wedding of Taylor and Frank and watch the slideshow. It's an option that works well for daytime.


Good luck!

I completely LOVE the idea of hanging chandeliers from the trees!  If our ceremony was outside, I would totally do it!!!  So elegant and pretty :)

We're hanging 8 chandeliers in 4 trees around our daytime ceremony.  There'll be two chandeliers in each tree.


There are taper candles but we won't light them.  My wedding is in two weeks.  I'll let you know how it goes!

I love this idea... but we went with paper lanterns because of the scrilla that the chandellers cost...

HELP! I am going to hang the chandeliers over my dance floor. Do I buy or rent? Does anyone have a vendor that rents these? I live in Jacksonville FL. Thanks!

Yea! Another Jacksonville girl!  I don't live there anymore but let me try and think of someone.


Update - try Kirby Tent - I've used them in the past but haven't seen their chandeliers.  The website says they have them.

There was a chandelier used during the day at Griffens ceremony.  The pictures aren't up yet on Augie Changs blog but you can see the chandelier in the video...
