You can choose to invite any member of your bridal party to be a part of your wedding day - simply choose the title you need from the menu.

Candle burn time and dimensions: 4 oz. candle, approximately 20-hour burn/2.5"W, 2.5"H. The gift boxes measure 4"x4"x3". Each bottle of matches contains 20 matches.
- Trim the wick to 1/4 inch (break off burned part) each time the candle is lit. This helps prevent the flame from getting too large and helps your candle to last longer.
- It is very important to break off the burned part of a wooden wick before lighting. Many times they will not stay lit if you don't.
- Keep lit candles away from drafts, ceiling fans, and any air currents. This will help your candle to last longer.
- Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep.
- Follow the 2-foot rule: don't place a burning candle near clothing, books, curtains or anything flammable.
- Place candles on a stable, heat-resistant surface.
- A candle should not be burned for more than four hours at a time.
- Don’t burn a candle all the way down. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 1/2 inch of wax remains in the container.

All of our products are made by hand out of natural ingredients so variations are to be expected. Each and every product we make is carefully inspected before it leaves our shop. These variations do not affect the integrity of our goods and will not be considered defects or damages:
Candles + Wax Melts • Changes in temperature may cause "wet spots" on candles. This is a term used to describe a spot on a candle jar that looks as if water has seeped in between the wax and the jar. This is a natural occurrence that can happen when candles go through changes in temperature (going from an air-conditioned home/car to a hot, humid mailbox or vice versa). These "wet spots" do not affect the way your candles burn or smell in any way. Soy candles may discolor to a yellow or orange color when exposed to light. This does not affect the scent or use of your candle and is not considered a defect.
Room & Linen Sprays • Different fragrance combinations mixed with our clear linen spray base may cause them to darken over time. Most will stay completely clear, but they could end up anywhere from a light tan color to a rich brown. This in no way affects their beautiful scent or odor eliminating power!
Sending a gift? We have a couple of ways to make it personal! You can send a gift message with any order, no charge. Just let me know what you'd like to say in the order notes box in your cart. I'll print it out in a pretty font on cardstock paper and include it with your gift.
We can gift wrap your order as well! Add it to your cart and I'll make it beautiful! If you'd like for me to ship it directly to the recipient, just change the shipping address to theirs instead of yours. Gifting made easy! :)
