Candles on the Beach

Recommended Posts

Has anybody had a problem with the tealight candles staying lit during a beach reception? I'm worried that the wind will continually blow out all the candles. worried2.gif

Depends on what type of votive holder you have them in.

 

Some of ours stayed lit, others did not.

I was thinking about using battery operated candles and put them in a frosted votive holder. That way it looks like there's an actual candle flame, but it's not obvious that it's not a real candle in there.

At my daughter's wedding at EDR the reception was outside at the Health Bar and it was extremely windy even though they pulled down shades to block the wind. We didn't even try to use votives, but we had larger candles floating in the pool covered by lanterns and they would not stay lit.

It was very windy on my wedding day, and we had floating candles in fish bowls. Mostly, they were fine. Our reception was on an outdoor patio, so I'm not sure if it would've worked if we were directly on the beach.

Our hotel used tall hurricane candle holders with tealights and from all the beach receptions that I saw there, they all stayed lit.

 

Something like this:

This is good to know. I was planning on bringing votives for my EDR wedding in February to put on my reception tables, but may not now. We are getting married at Gazebo 55 and having our reception at the White Gazebo on the beach.
Do you know if the tikki torches will stay lit on the beach?

Our location is also going to be very breezy, so I am also planning to use the battery operated votives with LED lights. I just want to be able to light them and forget about them... Plus, some LED varieties are waterproof, so you can submerge them in water with flowers, float them on something in the pool, etc.

    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
