    We're having our reception dinner on the beach and the wind will probably blow out candles. We could use hurricane glass holders, but we really don't want to carry these on the plane! We're thinking of using LED battery operated candles. Anyone have recent experiences with using battery operated candles? How did they look and did they last long? Thanks for any help!

    I use the battery operated LED ones in my home and they last forever!!  We are also going to use them for our wedding, I think they look just as good, without any of the hassle or the wind blowing them out or burning something down!

      That's great to hear, JayKay. Have you found a good website that sells nice, affordable ones? Thank you.

      No, I haven't.  I haven't really looked much yet though.  If you do please let me know!!

        Just make sure you don't buy the ones that turn on/off by blowing on them :)  I have those in my house & they work great BUT it would defeat the purpose for an outside wedding
