    They’re really beautiful, but if you’re worried about wind, you may want to try something else.  I had 2 tall candelabras framing the alter during the wedding ceremony… indoors, mind you, and the draft from the A/C had the candles on one melted almost totally away after only 1 hour.

    I would use fake candles if the wind is going to an issue.  Real taper candles burn quicker than columns and the dripping wax could become a problem.  The holders are gorgeous so use them!

    Keep the candelabras!!!!!!  I am using candelabras as well – and I will be using these peg votive holders (above) with mine because taper candles (though they look beautiful) often get wax everywhere.

    Hope this helps!!!

    I was going to say to ditch the candelabras because I thnk they’re too tall and I think the wind would send wax everywhere, but I like the holders the PP put up, so I think those could work, if you want to keep the candelabras.

    I love the candelabras! I like the idea of using the votive holders in them! Do you know where these candelabras are from?
