What about flameless in luminaries or frosted candle holders? Then you wouldn’t be able to tell they are flameless?

Your venue sounds awesome! I love arts and crafts bungalows! Where is it?

There are actually some nice flameless candles out there. Do a google search.

Why not battery operated lamps? Does such a thing exist?

What about throwies? They are little LED lights you could use to illuminate things.  They are not nice looking but if you put them in a tall covered vase/candle holder you cant really tell.  My venue wouldnt allow open flame on the stairs (there was a cool grand staircase) and I really wanted to put candles there so it was illuminated all pretty when people walked up it, so I bought like 7″ tall vases from the dollar tree store, wrapped them with lace and put throwies inside, looked the same as a candle illuminating through the lace since you really couldnt see inside the vase with the covering.

What about intertwining white christmas lights with ivy? You could do the big opaque lights they sell at christmas time, but those would have to be plugged in.

Why not just choose beautiful decor that doesn’t involve candles? Seems much easier.

My fiance found these great white candles that had a remote to turn on the “fake” candle! It looked like a real candle and when you turned it on, it looked like a real candle. Im not sure where he found these at, or how much they were, but I didnt know they were fake until he told me! Hope this helps!!
