Flameless candles have become a popular alternative to traditional wax candles. Wax luminaries are lovely, but they can be a fire hazard. Not to mention the smoke they produce and wax melt off which can pool around the candle and ruin tablecloths and décor. The biggest problem many people had with going flameless was the fact that some of the older versions didn’t quite capture the visual beauty of an actual glowing wick. Our motion flame timer candles have arrived and offer a functional wax alternative that looks amazing and moves!
Motion Flame Candles vs. Other Flameless Candles
Other flameless LED candle models use a flickering light effect to recreate the movement of real fire. While this can work in some settings, it is still very limited. The light typically dances within the bulb or faux flame attached to the top of the candle. It is still contained so it doesn’t actually appear to flicker like a real wax candle does. The shadows cast might look convincing, but a head on view will reveal that it’s just an imitation.
Our motion flame candles offer a solution to this problem by giving actual motion to the faux flame. A tapered light stands up over the center of the candle, surrounded by wavy rims that appear partially melted. When turned on, the “flame” visibly moves. It is not stuck within a bulb or cap but actually, physically moves so the light changes shape – just like a natural flame would!
What Can You Do with Motion Flame Candles?
Anything you can do with a wax candle you can do with our motion flame candles! In fact they are even more versatile thanks to their flameless design and convenient features. Add them to any candleholder or set them directly on furniture. Since there’s no melted wax or flame, you never have to worry about damage to wood, fabrics or other nearby surfaces. You can also place them close to objects you wouldn’t normally place a lit wax candle next to.
Our motion flame candles come in a variety of sizes with an amber LED and built-in timer that turns them on for five hours then off for 19. 3 AAA batteries provide power so you don’t have to have an electrical outlet free. They produce no smoke, only beautiful, natural looking candlelight. Try them at your next event and discover the many benefits of realistic flameless candles!
Some couples and event planners find themselves torn between traditional wax and wick candles and modern flameless candles. While you may feel compelled to go with the “real” thing, there are actually many appealing benefits that come with the flameless version.
Flameless Candle Benefit 1: No Flame Means No Smoke
A candle that doesn’t need a flame won’t produce smoke. Smoke can be unpleasant to smell and can actually be harmful to anyone with a weak or compromised respiratory system. Guests with asthma and other conditions will be much more comfortable when they don’t have to sit next to a smoke-producing flame.
Flameless Candle Benefit 2: Flameless Candles are Safer for Big Events
No flame also means less risk for you and your guests. Wax candles require an open flame that could burn nearby objects. If a candle is accidentally knocked over, it could catch linens and paper items on fire. Flameless candles also produce no hot melted wax, which can cause burns on skin.
Flameless Candle Benefit 3: Reuse Your Flameless Candles Again and Again
Flameless candles can be used repeatedly and always look just as good as they did during the first event! The candles don’t actually melt, which means there’s no mess to clean up and they always maintain their shape and size.
Flameless Candle Benefit 4: Flameless Candles Fit Most Candle Holders
Modern flameless candles are designed to fit most similarly sized candleholders. For example, if you have flameless tealights, they will fit into candleholders designed for tealights. Many different sizes and styles are available, including pillars, votives and many more so you can always find the right flameless candle to go with you existing décor.
Flameless Candle Benefit 5: Enjoy Intimate Lighting without a Flame
Today’s flameless candles are designed to recreate the look of a real flame so your guests get the same experience. Some even flicker and include faux melted wax around the outside. You can enjoy all the benefits of flameless candles without sacrificing visual appeal at your wedding!
