Haha @ the “no fish” request. I think the floating candle idea is cute, maybe with some colored stones to add a vibrant touch. But wow 108 of them?!? Thats alot

I like the floating candle w/vase filler.  Maybe consider a submerged flower too?  Are they big enough to make into a candy buffet?  Put candles or flowers in them and use them to line the ceremony aisle? And of course- sell any you don’t need and turn a profit! 😉

How many guests are you having? I was trying to go outside of the box and am thinking you could use them as escort cards. Submerging the name and table number in water and putting a candle on top could be cool and then everyone will bring them to their tables so you’ll have dinner lighting.

If you want to get rid of a few of them, I’m in stl and would be willing to take some off of your hands. I like the floating candle idea. I’m not sure what else they would be good for.

I really like using them for the ceremony.  If I had a bunch of vases and candles, I would probably do that.. or you could sprinkle them around the recpetion hall with floating candles.. food tables, escort card tables.. restrooms w/ scented candles… at the bar, good luck!

Could you line the aisle with them? some sand or stones and a candle? If you could dim the lighting of your ceremony location, this and candles at the end of the aisle/where you get married could be beautiful. I was at a wedding recently where there were 300+ guests and they had candles everywhere. It was stunning. Midafternoon wedding, but absolutely gorgeous.

I like the idea of lining your aisle with them. Alternatively, if your budget allows, put a big bloom in each, such as a large peony or hydrangea-style of flower. Something large & fluffy to fill the space. You have so many of them, you can do both the flower & candle alternating around your space! Good luck!
