How to Use "Tea Lights" When Open Flame are Not Allowed

Aug 28, 2007
Want to use tea light candles to mark your path or adorn the tables in your reception? Tea light candles in a darkened reception hall or just after sunset at the beach can create an almost magical effect that will create an amazing amount of ambiance without costing you a lot of money. But what do you do if the facility (or the state) you are using says no to open flames?

It is not an uncommon problem. As buildings get older and people become more aware of the risks posed by open flames it is getting harder and harder to fine a facility that will allow open flames. As a matter of fact in the Western half of the United States where the summers have low humidity it is getting harder and harder to find a park that will allow open flames from anything, including from a tea light candle.

The reason is simple: An open flame from a tea light (or any other kind of candle) always runs the risk of fire - something that could ruin an otherwise wonderful evening and cause much unnecessary damage.

Want to use tea lights at your beach wedding or your evening wedding at your favorite mountainside park, but nothing you try protects them from being blown out by the breeze coming off of the water or mountains? You could try having all of your friends and family lining the aisle while they cup the candles with their hands, but that would not be very fun for them and it just might be dangerous for someone who is not paying close enough attention.

So what is the solution? If tea lights are too dangerous do you have to just leave them out of your wedding plans?

Not anymore. Simply use battery operated tea light candles. Modern battery operated candles give off a soft flickering candlelight effect which makes them perfect when regulations or circumstances get in the way. There is no actual flame so they are safe in terms of the fire threat, and since there is no flame there is no hot melted wax to worry about. That means no chance a small curious child will burn themselves with hot wax.

And more, you can use your tea light candles from your wedding over and over again through the years with little more than an occasional battery change.

So go ahead, order the themed tea light holders for your wedding. Just be certain to pick up enough battery operated tea light candles as well.
