Wedding Centerpiece With a Live Fish

I want to put a real fish in a bowl with a floating candle. Would it be OK?

Candles are just paraffin so my guess is yes. However, I would test it with a glass or bowl of water and a fish with a candle on top, just to be sure. This will create a more stress free wedding. If you end up doing this, take a shot and share?

I've been to a wedding where they did this. It works if you put the fish in pretty close to the time of the reception. BUT several fish died and I don't really believe is using live creatures for entertainment and then death. The bride had all the guests take the fish bowl w/fish if they wanted. IT does work...

It might overheat the water and stress the fish.

Find another centerpiece. There is the problem of carrying infection such as salmonella.

There is the threat to the fish by way of the what candle is made of, the heat. It isn't fair to the fish for what you think is novel.

The fish will likely survive, but most of the guests will not want to take home a goldfish and care for it. This is not a good idea to use live animals for entertainment and decorations. It is likely a death sentence for these animals - either they will die right away (and who wants a bowl with a dead fish and a candle in it as a centerpiece) or they will end up dead because no one wants to care for these fish. There are many lovely things in the world to use for decorations that won't involve dead fish.

I think that is an awesome idea and so unique...

I agree with Louise B. The fish is a living creature. Are you just going to toss it after the wedding? Not nice.
