Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Destination2015 Small but Nice
I'm using these as a part of my wedding centerpieces, and they are much smaller than I imagined. Think shot glass sized. They do however, perfectly fit led tea lights. They were well packaged and I didn't have any break during shipment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KochvilleDi Getting them ready & how to re-use
I'm sharing my experience. It's up to you to decide if this would work for you. Clean these before bringing to the reception hall, as they do have small Styrofoam pieces stuck to them. I wiped them off with a dust cloth, and so they didn't get dirty again, before I put them back into the Styrofoam, I cut the slide-n-seal tops off of sandwich bags, and put one under the votive before gently pushing it back into the Styrofoam forms. This worked great to keep them clean. The Styrofoam boxes need a bit of reinforcement to keep them together. Before putting the votives back in, around the outside, I put shipping tape, which helped to make them a bit more sturdier.
Do you want to reuse? Normally I would put 1 teaspoon of water into the bottom before inserting the candle for easy removal. But we had to turn them into the hall on Thursday and the wedding wasn't until Saturday. So I put about 1 1/2 teaspoons (using a squirt bottle) in the bottom before inserting the candles. I did not put the Styrofoam holders back into cardboard boxes, but stacked them into sturdy plastic bins with covers. You just have to make sure you keep your bins level when transporting and who ever is putting them out should be told there is water in the bottom of votives.
To remove candles, set about 6 at a time in an inch or two of hot water for about 30 seconds, and a small pry with a knife will pop the candle out. Do over a trash bin etc. because dirty water also spills out. Wash them, and with a little elbow grease here and there to remove wax, they'll be almost as good as new and ready to re-use. I cleaned them up 3-4 days after the wedding. I'm not sure how long you could wait to do this; I would advise doing it within a week of use if possible. Hope this helps you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kimodie great product for a great price
I bought these to decorate and use as not only supplements to my wedding table centerpieces, but as favors as well. I ordered 11 dozen, and only one was broken! That's impressive! They were a great price, and look very lovely. I'm excited to see the guest's reactions!
