    Hi I was wondering if anyone has used or is using the aqua beads that expand in water. Just wondering how long you leave them in the water for when they are expanding. xx

    I'm using them. It does tell you on the packaging. I'm doing mine the week of the wedding and just leaving them in the water overnight until they've formed. Then I'll put my flowers etc in

    We are having tall martini glasses filled with 3 layers of aqua beads in red white & blue with the led light inside and 3 candles on top. The candles wont be lit though. Ive uploaded a picture to show you what it looks like with the light in it.

    That's where we ordered ours from MrsC2Be. Going to get the little light that goes into them as well from there. Can believe how much we have sorted and we don't get married until 2018 xx

    Have never seen those before, but they look lovely - especially with the light in them.

    Looking forward to becoming the 3rd and last Mrs McLauchlan

    Leaving them for 24hours should be enough. Thats what ill be doing. If your getting them online id do a test run. I did this and from on seller the balls were so small i had to buy them elsewhere
