    I personally like the luminaries better. The floating candles have been done before and I think there is more versatility with the luminaries. Good luck!

    I love the luminaries.. they’re gorgeous! you might want to check with the venue first though – my sister was going to do that for her wedding but had to change – something about a fire hazard?

    Luminaries for sure! They are not your typical floating candles – a lot of brides do that . I love this idea, it is a little something you wouldn’t see at every other wedding!!

    Why not both? They both seem like low-cost options! So why not the candles on the tables, and accent the outer points of the reception with the luminaries?

    Following Martha’s guidelines, I made luminary-style vases.  They were super easy to set up because we’d done all the work ahead of time, and they allowed candles, so you don’t have to worry about your LEDs fritzing out.  (I use some at work and they’re awful.  I’m sure they’re old and beat up and were probably the cheapest option, but they made me discount the idea of LED candles.)

    I wrote about them here.

    I agree, do both!  Half your table with floating candles, half with luminares.  That will not only help you control costs a bit but you’ll have a nice mix of lighting  throughout your venue!
