to think £50 is a cheek for our wedding caterers to charge for tealights

on eight tables when last time I looked in Ikea they were £2.50 for a gazillion

I hate the way they think they can charge you the earth because it's your wedding day - it's only a party fgs, even if it is a special one

Needless to say, we won't pay it, but I'm sure they'll find other ways to squeeze dosh out of us

Good God - not at all!!

Would watch carefully what they charge for everything else - may £50 for napkins!

Can't you opt out of this and provide them yourselves? Have always said if I ever go into business it will be a wedding one so I can charge a fortune and most people will pay up! (But I'm not, so I defo think you should try and get out of it.)

Are they encrusted with gold or summat???? That's outrageous. No way would I agree to pay that! Buy your own...DG & I bought all our table decorations and did the decorating ourselves (I'm such a control freak!!!).
