Help please, i feel abit stupid asking lol

So im planning on buying some of these for the tables at the reception, but i really have no idea to turn the tealights on once they're inside... image if they need turning on before they go in that just wont work as we wont have the time to go round putting them together and tying them all up after the wedding ceremony.. if thats the only way it looks like we wont be having them after all!

Has anyone else used these or know someone who has?


 (ive checked the description/pictures on ebay and there is no hole at the back to just slot them in either)

    usually the switch is on the bottom of the tea-light. Which would unfortunately mean you would have to switch them on individually and then tie them up....

    Could you stick the candle onto the bottom of the box then cut a small hole to allow access to the switch? That way you could have them all tied up and ready to go and someone could just pick the whole thing up and flick the switch. Mother are too pretty not to have them, I'm sure you could make it work image x

  • Ah Miss2Mrs you may have just solved that problem! Thank you!! image X

    Miss2mrs14, that's such a simple but genius solution lol.  I was just looking at them thinking "hmm...there's absolutely no way of doing it...".  D'oh!
