You can use flamless LED candles. Thats what im using, they sell them at Michaels and walmart.

Especially if it’s tucked into other decor no one will notice that your tealights are LEDs.  In fact they’ll think it’s cool if they do – they won’t burn out (or burn up anything else).  They can be pretty cheap and then you can reuse them for years and years of jack-o-lanterns.  🙂

Yep – LED flameless candles were going to be my suggestion as well. You can get HUGE LED candles too (that could flank the fireplace). You can get them at all sorts of places (like Target, Walmart, etc.)

LED candles.  And you can use any pillar candles you have already purchased by buring the candle down some and putting a tealight LED in the top.

I could not have candles at my reception either. I thought LED candles were cheesy with there big white bottoms. I took painters tape and covered the light, and spray painted the bottoms. I think they look a lot better in my votives. I was on Save A Craft and purchased an amber garland with a string of battery operated lights. You could put that around your fireplace.

They didn’t give you a size limit on the jars, right? you can get a couple of large glass jars (like cookie jars) and put multiple candles in them. Or, if you knowhow to make candles, you could make the large jars into multi-wick candles.

I also second the LED tealights, instead of the large LED pillars.  The tealights are so small that no one will really notice they aren’t real tea lights.
