@BeccaBee83: Really, the only way to know is to test them out…freezing them beforehand helps them last a little longer.  Even then, prepare to have backups…some of ours burned crazy fast because of a ceiling fan right above!

@BeccaBee83: I am doing this as my centerpieces, I already bought the floating candles for my florist!  But to be honest I’m not sure how long they’d last, I assume at least 4 hours.

I’ve been thinking about doing this, and if you search for them on Amazon or similar sites, the reviews will usually tell you how long they burned for (plus, there are some pretty great prices!). But you can also always order some and do a test run to see how long it burns.

It depends on the candles! Our florists tested a bunch of different kinds to find out which ones last the longest. Try to get a thick candle… and they also told us that white candles tend to last longer than ivory ones for some reason. We’re doing similar centerpieces and we’re so excited about them!
