    My reception is adults-only SO THAT we don’t have to worry.  I know that’s not helpful to you at all, though…

    We had tea lights on all the tables, including the ones with kids. Our tables were large & round, though, so the candles were away from the place settings, and there was plenty of catering staff around to keep an eye on something. I wasn’t really worried, and nothing happened.

    That is so sweet and considerate of you! We are having an adult only reception, but if we did have children at the reception I could completely understand your concern as my brother suffered through surgery and will have life long disabilities due to a fall/head trauma. But, on the other end, I would want to trust the parents to watch over their children. Sorry for not being much help.

    As a mom of 4, I understand why you’re worrying. I think it’s really nice of you to think about the kids and their safety. I am sure the parents will appreciate your thinking about them, too.

    Not weird but I don’t think it will be a big issue. Round tables are usually fairly large in diameter and the centerpieces are at the center,out of a kid’s who would be young enough to play with it and get burned reach. Plus parents are generally good about not letting their small children play with fire.

    Not weird. I went with LED candles (that flicker like real ones) for this (and other) reasons. I also wanted to get married in the bush, but then remembered it was more likely to have snakes than other places, there are huge cliffs, large cyanide pits and it would just be much easier for them to get hurt or lost there.

    I also wanted a magician to entertain them lol. FI didn’t really like that idea.

    I don’t think it’s weird that you’re thinking about this.

    I don’t think you’re being weird at all…however, I think that parents should/would be responsible for their kids no matter where they are with them.

    I have 2 kiddos, I wouldnt worry about the children hurting themselves.  Their parents would be there, and should be watching them.  As a parent though, not having to tell my 3 year old son a million times “dont touch the fire buddy, it will hurt you”, candles with no visible flames would be ideal lol

    But I am having real candles at my wedding either way lol
