Just noticed it got eatten!
I just wanted to say, I tried using led tealights I found at dollar tree that come in a package of 3 (they flicker) and tried to see if they can be uswed as cheap submersible LED lights. You do have to turn them upside down because they float otherwise, but I left them all night and it was still going when I woke up! I havent tried turning off and back on, thats where I see a problem if you dont dry completely, but for a wedding, it seems like a cheaper way! I do admit, they are not as bright as LEDs made other places, but for my purpose they will work perfect. I am going to take mason jars and fill with just a few clear glass rocks, and float a single lily on top to hang instead of pommanders.

lol…. that is something I would read too…
I just tried turning them on while wet, and they turned off and on, but there is a little brown film on the bottom, so I threw them away after. It might have been the lights/batteries, but coud have been because they were left in my junk drawer for the last few weeks and could have been a little dusty.

@weeonebride: you said they flicker? The entire time? Im picturing a strobe light right now…

no, they are supposed to look like the flicker of a real candle. I prefer the constant ones but for the price its the only ones I can find. Although strobe centerpieces are original.. hehe

I purchased a ton of the same lights at the dollar store…had not thought about submerging them. I was just going to set them around the tables…they were too cheap to pass up!
