I love them.  You might use the battery operated candles for them.  I bought mine at Hobby Lobby at a half off sale and they were really reasonable.

they are definitely tasteful, and quite cute!  maybe think about going for 12?  if they are too spread out it may not have the effect you want in such a big tent.  perhaps cluster them around the dance floor or head table area instead?  btw everything looks gorgeous!

I love them but I do think that they are a little small to have 8 stand on their own. As previously mentioned, I’d reserve them for the entry way or hanging over specific areas (your table, dance floor, etc) You can also try making your own (maybe w/ vellum to get that glass effect) following this video tutorial:

but I’d scale it up to make bigger ones. They would make more of an impact with less.
