The lighting that you choose for your wedding can go a long way toward making the venue inviting for your guests and beautiful for you. You'll typically want to choose a variety of lighting products, but one option to consider is a batch of flameless candles. These devices operate on batteries and have a simulated flame. They're available in many different sizes and shapes, from large, pillar-style candles to small, votive candles. You can set flameless candles up in a variety of spots around your wedding venue. Here are some reasons that this lighting option is a good choice.
There's No Fire Risk
The flameless design of flameless candles means that there's no risk of fire. This is likely the main reason that people use these lights at weddings and even in their homes. While actual candles provide a lot of beauty, they come with a risk. Someone could knock a candle over — an issue that can especially be a concern if you'll have kids at your wedding — and the flames could spread across the tablecloth quickly. Another issue with actual candles is that they have the risk of setting off a nearby smoke detector — which isn't something that you want on your important day.
They'll Stay Lit
Actual candles can burn at different speeds. Typically, if a candle is in a semi-drafty area, it will burn faster than its peers. This can mean that many of your candles will burn out over the course of your wedding, resulting in the hassle of having to replace them. Some guests may inadvertently blow out candles while in close contact with them, requiring someone with a lighter to relight them. You don't have to worry about either issue when you choose flameless candles.
If you take a look at a variety of styles of flameless candles, you'll often notice that they burn brighter than their natural counterparts. While there are certainly some types of flameless candles that cast a soft glow around them, others are effective at brightening the space. If you don't want to go overboard with other types of lights, you'll want your flameless candles to provide a fair degree of brightness — and that's something that you can achieve with the right candles.
