I looked on the Internet and found various answers, including some of the opinion that tealights don’t last as long as they used to. I bought a bunch of tealights from Ikea (GLIMMA unscented) and am having a Halloween party in a week. On the Ikea website, they say the “burn time” is 4 hours but I have a hard time believing that. I thought the best people to ask might be you Bees! Will I be running around replacing all the tealights every hour, or will they last a while?

My daughter’s wedding decor person (florals, too), had votives that burned for 5 or 6 hours; plenty of time to light them all before the reception started, but wouldn’t have much waste left afterwards.

i think it varies, depending on wax and wick quality. for my wedding i bought 8+ hour burning tealights as i didnt want anyone to have to go round replacing and relighting them. id imagine if the ikea ones say 4 hours then youd get between 3-4 hours from them. burn one as a tester.x
