As far as wedding accents go, the glass globe votive is impressively versatile! If you're going for a rustic woodland style, decorate your outdoor ceremony space by hanging globes filled with twinkling votives and plants fit for a terrarium. If it's the glam look you're after add dimension to a ceremony arch by hanging a group of glass globes filled with your wedding flowers or dangle the candleholders from tall centerpieces on your reception tables. Buy the hanging glass votives at a floral supply store (like Accent Decor or Save On Crafts), then find a few ways to use them at your wedding from the options below!
