I’m hoping to buy the 24 pack of Ikea floating candles (FENOMEN) for $5.99 to use in my centerpieces. My only concern is that they won’t burn throughout my entire reception!
Has anyone used these candles and know how long their burn time typically is?
Many thanks 🙂

I’m pretty sure I tested these for my wedding and I want to say it was pretty true to what the package said (4 hours, if my memory serves me right). I opted to not do floating candles because I needed a longer burn time and I couldn’t find any and ended up finding votives that worked. Tea-lights weren’t long enough either – but we had them and just let them burn out.

I just bought the IKEA candles on the advice of other BEES but didn’t realize til I was in the store that they are so much smaller than Michaels brand. I still made the purchase based on the HOPE that they will really burn the full four hours (length of our reception. I also got some votives and know they won’t make it four hours but hope they make it a few. Any brides think the IKEA floating candles are too small for the cylinder with submerged flower centerpieces? 24 pack was $5.99 so not a bad price but wondering if I should have bought at Michaels.

I did a trial too -same thing 4 hour burn and probably won’t last though the entire reception. 🙁
