May 6, 2008
For your wedding consider replacing the old style wax and wick candles with the new safe battery candles. Today churches and wedding halls can no longer have open flame candles in the wedding ceremonies? More and more insurance companies and county fire safety laws are restricting the use of open flame candles in public places. The following is a summery of what you should be looking for in a flameless battery candle.

Complete use and care instructions for the candle should also be included.
