    I went to Ikea today. I got tea light holders for 29 cents each and packs of 24 tea lights in my colors (fuschia and lime green) for I think $3. They had a lot of cute things for decorations...candle holders, candles, frames, stones and sand. Just thought I'd let you all know...

        I only went there because my sister got me a gift card that I have been meaning to use. When I got there, I was so psyched to find stuff for the wedding!

            Ikea is great, Just an FYI on the tea lights, they may blow out if the wind is blowing hard.. That was one thing I was worried about, and it ended up being REALLY windy the day of our wedding.

              Crap - I didn't consider the wind factor. I was planning on having candles EVERYWHERE... any creative suggestions to protect the candles from blowing out?

                  Great idea! We have one nearby and I always forget that they have ssoo much to choose from -- and great prices! I think that's where I'll get my candles, etc. The small stuff - it's cheaper there than at a Dollar Store most of the time!
