I am using battery operated tealight candles. I got mine from SixStarSales on ebay. Their email is [email protected]. I got 48 of them for $48.

They were tealight candles and the flame flickers like a real candle. Be sure to put them in a frosted votive (not a clear glass one) otherwise it will not look like a real candle, it will be obvious its not. If the votive is frosted, you can see the flame flicker, but not the base of the candle.

The pillars can be pretty expensive, but try 100candles.com They have ones that have a flickering candle and it looks realistic, with wax running down the side of the candle.

We use battery opperated led candles at work and let me tell you… thye last, but the ‘flame’ isnt really that pretty.  They are really pretty and give off nice light if they are in a holder that hides the look, and they arent terrible, i just got sick of them at work everyday…. 

 Anyways, you can get rechargeable ones at lowes and home depot. you can also get some battery operated ones at walmart and craftstores. im sure you can get them in bulk from offline somewhere.  

good luck!

I got these from Walgreen’s for less than $1 apiece:

They’ve got a nice natural orange glow and flicker just like a real flame. I actually fooled Fiance once by putting them in some candleholders on the mantle; he asked if I was going to blow them out before I went to sleep!

Hi Noodlie,

We also used battery operated tealights and frosted votive holders, in combination with some LED throwie lanterns. I’m actually selling all 48 tealights and votive holders for $40 all combined, that I originally bought at Save on Crafts last summer, if you’re interested.

Thanks, happy wedding planning!
