    I’d rather pay closer to $10, but I think $20 is reasonable. It does sort of depend what the custom work is (ie. screen printing text on vs. intricate hand carving or something)

    Ours is going to be $85-100 from etsy. I’m totally getting ripped off but I love it so I’m going to buy it.  Ideally, I’d rather pay around $30

    I paid $7 dollars for a large battery operated flameless candle from AC Moore using a 50% off coupon. I got a memorial candle decal from ebay for $2.95 wiht free shipping and used left over material from my DIY wedding carbox to decorate the candle. My fiance made the base from scrap wood that was in our basement and again I used leftover scraps from my DIY wedding cardbox to decorate myself. Total spent $10. I think you are getting way OVER charged from etsy.

    @MangoLover4Life:  Thank you and before this whole wedding planning thing I never did crafts, so you can do it! Here are some more photos of the candle.

    Wax is ephemeral, so I wouldn’t want to pay much for something that will eventually melt.

    I said other, because honestly I’m not a big fan of unity candles. I’m quite happy with any alternative, wine boxes, sand containers, anything!
