Good for the price
The candles are good for the price. They will work pretty well for my wedding. I think the wicks could be a bit longer for easier lighting.

These are exactly what I needed for my reception centerpieces! The size of them is perfect, they float good and look great in the vases.

Lasted longer than needed
Used these for an outdoor wedding. Had 30 vases with these candles in them. Lit them about 8:00 as it was starting to get dark and blew them out around 1:00 a.m. and still lots of candle left! Great for the money! Couldn't buy them around here for less than 1.50 each on sale. They arrived quickly, which I needed since we planned the wedding in less than one month.

2.25" Floating candles
I bought these candles for a backyard wedding party center pieces. I looked around online for about 2 hours looking for the best deal, and it seemed Oriental Trading had it. I thought I was going to need the 3" candles, but the 2.25" size were perfect and I was so glad I didn't get bigger ones. I can't speak to how long they stay lit because I haven't used them yet. They were delivered faster than I thought they would be, so I was really happy about that.

The candles melted into the water in little bits and broken shards--what a mess! I've never seen candles do that. VERY unattractive.
Bought these candles for a magazine photo shoot. WOW, were they ever disappointing! They melted into the water and made a big mess. They were supposed to be part of a centerpiece, floating with beautiful flowers in a container. The candles became very frustrating.

The size and color were what I expected. I haven't used them yet, but think they'll be the perfect touch to our wedding tables.

Just What I Wanted
I bought two dozen of these for my wedding centerpieces. After reading reviews I was concerned about how long the candles would burn and if they would make it through the reception. The candles were lit by 5pm and made it til 11pm when decorations started coming down! So 6 hours for sure for anyone worried about length of time!

Bigger candle than I thought- looks great!
For a centerpeice these candles may not fit in a small jar but they will fit most vases and mason jars. I put them in a big round vase and it looks perfect. Love the price of these floating candles. Cannot beat the bargain.

Cute but small
Not sure how long they are going to burn for because they are so little. They aren't that thick, so we shall see.

Nice long lasting candles for the price.
