My event has been rescheduled due to Covid-19, can the writing be changed on my candles?
Unfortunately the writing on our candles is set into the wax and cannot be easily removed. If your event has been rescheduled due to Covid-19 and you need a replacement candle with a new date printed on it, you can avail of a discounted rate. You must have purchased the original candle from us, and the replacement candle will be printed in the same design as the original (If you purchased a unity set, please keep your tapers, you should only need to replace the pillar candle). Unfortunately, we are not in a position to offer discount on shipping at this time.

What size candles do I need?
The most common question from brides & grooms! Wedding Unity Sets are available with a 20cm pillar candle or a 25cm pillar candle, accompanied with 2 x 25cm taper candles (the skinny ones!). So, this all depends on whether you're putting your candles on a stand or into flowers! If you're putting your candles on a stand, then you can choose either size. But, if you're planning on putting your candles into a floral arrangement then the 25cm set would be the better choice as you'll need the extra height or your candles tend to look lost amongst the flowers. Ultimately, it's your choice, this is just a guide as to why you might choose either size.
