cudge.net has a fairly good selection of candles at good prices.

last week i came across a Michael’s deal for 12 glass votives with candles for 4.00.  it came to 33 cents each.  best deal i could find, but it only came in white and ivory.  no pretty colors like on cudge.net.  let us know if you find anything better!

I bought the Michael’s candles several months ago at that same deal…. however I ended up returning them due to their size.  When I opened one of the boxes I saw that all of the candles were filled less than 3/4 of the way up the votive.  I was nervous that they would not last the 5 hour reception.  i could be wrong though!  

I’m still kicking myself for returning several boxes of ridiculously cheap filled clear votives from the CTS last summer- at the time they were mixed boxes of white & ivory and I was being picky…. I keep hoping they will get them back in stock now!

I think that’s a great deal. 25 cents each….sure is!!!  I’m looking for the votive holders too, I’d like to find some frosted like the ones from Cudge. I got lucky and found white all-purpose, unscented, long burning (15 hrs) votive candles @ Kmart for $2…About 3 weeks later, they marked them down to 75 cents a box but I had all I needed.  I still think the $2 per box I paid was an awesome deal.

Cudge shipping costs are a lot! that’s what stopped me from ordering the votive candles from the site.

Cudge advertises their candles as being smokeless, are regular candles different? i feel like I haven’t seen other candles marked as "smokeless" in Michaels so I’m confused

If you live in NYC, you can pick up your orders from cudge.net at their 23rd street warehouse. That’s what we plan on doing.

You can get the candles from Dollar Tree Direct for 0.25 each and I think shipping is only $5 if you ship to the store and pick it up there.

I used candle4less.com to buy my votives. I got 288 flower pot votives including votive candles for around $.74 each including shipping. And I did a burn test with the candles and they burned well over 6 hours.

I also used candles4less.com. I had them shipped directly to my reception location and that is out of town so I haven’t seen them yet, but they are running a special right now: 72 candles and holders for $34.99. I ordered 3 of those totaling 216 candles (including holders) and the shipping was $26.59. I think that is pretty reasonable considering the weight of the glass holders and the shipping for ground is around 3 business days.

If you have a Big Lots location nearby, they are selling the SAME votive candle packs just like Michael’s but I think they are cheaper.  They sell 12 for $4.99 which comes about the about .41 cents each.

QUICK TIP- before you light the candles to decorate for the big day, burn the wick at home for just a few seconds and then when the wedding day arrives, the candles will light quicker!
