They lasted 6 hours, but I would just burn one, to be sure. The only tricky thing is, since the wax melts into a liquid, it can slosh onto the table…but this shouldn’t be a problem if you have sturdy tables.

Hope that helps!

the ones on cudge.net last 10 hours and are reasonably priced.

about six hours ish, as long as you light them right before the reception starts you should be fine.  i usually get mine from like wal-mart or something like that.

The ones that I bought from Candlelight (I think that’s what it’s called) lasted about 7-8 hours before burning out completely. I went to a party thing with my mom and we bought quite a few.

Yeah, it was partylite. The consultant said that they’re super safe too. One of her triplets (a boy) was messing around in the living room and spilled one of the tealights all over his head. Once they got it wiped off of his face, all he had were some red “heat” marks that faded within just a short time. I’ve found that it’s really easy to clean up too.

I got some from World Market that lasted 6-7 hours. I think they were $7 for a bag of 50. They also had the regular 4 hour ones, $5 for 100.

My sister regularly buys the bags of tealights from Walmart (Mainstays brand). They say they burn up to 6 hrs or so but she has had them last about 24 hrs (obviously not burning the entire  consecutive 24 hrs but that length of time total) before she has to toss them out. The ones from the dollar store have lasted the same length of time. Just make sure they are unscented if you plan to have them around food.
