Hi Ladies, I bought 20 of them in Ikea on yesterday, 79 euro.... they are really nice... But don't know if i should go battery tea lights, or real ones.. My H2B said to leave them back if I am not going to go real candles... Don't know what to do :-/

Im getting the real tea lights, i think the led ones could look quite tacky but thats just me! I love the look of natural candle light in a church!

Hey there I have 36 silver lanterns for my pew ends and battery operated LED tea lights to go with them. The reason so many brides use LED tea lights is that the other ones are strongly advised against, especially if your lantern is metal. HTH! :thnk

I got them on eBay as did most of the other brides in here. Just make sure you opt for an amber bulb and not a clear bulb. I would advise checking with your priest before you go any further. Some brides had priests that just didn't let them. My reasons were that I'm having a winter wedding so I didn't want them to blow out, I didnt want my dress to catch fire walking up the aisle,I didn't want the lanterns to burn the wooden pew ends when they heated up, and also wanted to reuse them for the reception and didn't want to have to deal with changing 36 candles after 6 hours when they had burned out. And it's my wedding so of course they will look amazeballs! :o)ll
