    No, the votive would be filled with hot wax and I wouldn't think to take it. : (7 votes)

    I still think people might mistake them for favors. Is it possible to have someone collect them after dinner is served? Like have the server collect it when they drop off the food or something like that?

    If something else was clearly a favor I would not think the other was also. I wouldn’t be surprised if some people ask though.

    Hmmm probably safer to do placecards.  Put different ribbons on the cards to indicate meal choice… I think people would take the votives.

    Oh wait I just realized you were wanting to use them to provide candlelight too. Yeah that’s a little trickier. Maybe collect after dinner? I think as long as it’s lit no one is going to blow it out and stick it in their purse.

    I’d use another idea for the place cards. It would be too easy for the votives to be mistaken for favors. 🙁

    i think i might mistake it for a favor- unless there were other favors ( like you said with a thank you note) then i would probably dismiss the candles.

    we did placecard and bought little crystal stickers to put on the cards in my colors – we had more chicken than anything so we left those blank, then we just had to pick 2 colors for the other 2 food choices…it worked out really well

    Would another option be just to buy the votives? I’m not sure how big your wedding is but you could probably get them fairly cheap in bulk.

    Logistic ques: are they going to be lit when people grab them and take them to the table? If so they would be too hot, I would think.

    If they arn’t lit, they may think they are favors. Also, who will light them once they are at the table?

    I would mistake them for favors.. also I dont understand how the color coded system works because some guests will move their votives or place cards around on the table.

    I went to a wedding where the bride used a little colored stamp at the bottom of each placecard to indicate meal choice. If I saw a candle with my name on it, I would probably think it was mine to take home!
