Moochette, We will be having an outdoor wedding also, I told my daughter all the candles will have to be in some sort of container that way the breeze will not blow them out, plus the glistening of the glass will add to the sparkle and romance of your event. Good luck and I hope this helps

I love the idea of using the cylinder vases with a single floating candle! I'd like to have taller arrangements to make it dramatic but I'm afraid people won't be able to converse if the bouquet is any taller than 10 inches. I was also thinking of having a short round vase in the center but maybe have it place inside a glass bowl and have floating candles floating around the cylinder in the bowl. Finding ideas is the easy part... deciding on one is taking forever!

This is what I am doing. Dollar Tree is definitely the best route. I got 24 7-1/4" vases for $24! Free shipping if you ship to a store. Can't beat that! Also, there is another site: Quickcandles.com. They are also good deals, and unluck some of those other bulk distributors of vases, the shipping isn't as much as the vases! Hope I helped a bit!

I'm using floating candles to line the aisle for our ceremony. I also got them from www.dollartree.com. Great deal and free shipping.

we're spending quite a bit on specialty foods and an open bar, luckily, I'm not crazy about flowers anyways (I have family and friends with allergies, not to mention my own!) I definitly wanted to go the candle route, but I wasn't sure how.  Sure, the floating candles are cool, but if you're doing all DIY, then you have a bazillion glasses/containers left over, what on earth are you supposed to do with them???

@sweetlilpsycho, I sold all my vases on Craigslist to another bride and actually made a profit from them. I also saved a couple to use as decor in my home...it's one of the "wedding items" that actually was worth the initial splurge. :)

I was thinking using charisma candles (set of 3 different sizes) and rose petals all around for the guest tables and a vase full of roses for the family tables (about 5) to cut the cost of flowers.
