My daughter’s wedding decor person (florals, too), had votives that burned for 5 or 6 hours; plenty of time to light them all before the reception started, but wouldn’t have much waste left afterwards.

i think it varies, depending on wax and wick quality. for my wedding i bought 8+ hour burning tealights as i didnt want anyone to have to go round replacing and relighting them. id imagine if the ikea ones say 4 hours then youd get between 3-4 hours from them. burn one as a tester.x
