Votive candle sets can make it even easier to get ready for a big event like your wedding. It can also make it easier to decorate your home. But when should you buy votive candle sets instead of candles and holders individually?

The main reason people buy votive candle sets is because you specifically need the candles and the holders. Plus, buying in a set usually makes it slightly less expensive than if you were to purchase holders and candles separately.

So, if you're looking to buy votive candles and holders, votive candle sets are a good option. This is because you can pick and choose the color, scent and holder without having to shop around as much. Which makes the whole process a lot more convenient.

Now, let's say you want to buy votive candles, but you don't have any sort of candle holder to put them in. In this case, you would definitely want to buy votive candle sets. This way you will get the holder as well as the candle. Votive candles are a small candle that will completely liquefy when burning. So, if you burn a votive candle outside of a holder it will make a waxy mess. Plus you also won't get the 10 hour burn time a votive candle has.

A wedding or big event is another great reason to buy votive candle sets. You can get sets of 12, 72, 144 or 288 depending on the size of your event. This will take some of the complications out of ordering decor for events. Ordering decor items for your wedding in sets like this will not only save you some time, but also a few bucks. Plus ordering in sets takes some of the guess work out of the equation which will alleviate some of the stress of planning a big event.

If you choose to order votive candle sets, you can customize the holder to fit the occasion. If you want to add an elegant or perhaps rustic vibe, you can wrap fabric and ribbon around your holders. Lace or burlap can change the look of the votive holder and it's simple to do!

However, if you already have holders and just need some extra candles, or vice versa, you can always just order one of the two. Even if you order in a set, you can always order extra votive candles just in case you need them. This is good if you want to keep using your votive candle holders after your event, or if you're ordering them as a part of your home decor. This means you'll have some extra candles on hand for when you need more.

No matter what you need them for, votive candle sets make shopping easier for everyone!
