Hello. I want to have candles either in small votives and/or tall stem candle holders like this picture for my outdoor reception. Is this a bad idea, will they not stay lit? Are there other options I’m not thinking of?

I would use the battery operated ones outside, that way you don’t have to worry about them going out.

They might stay lit in hurricanes, but kind of depends on your venue. It tends to be very windy where we are getting married depending on weather in other areas of the state so we don’t plan to try to get candles to stay lit. I’m going to use the battery operated ones but wrap my votive holders in something or paint them so you can’t see the tealights very well. They are really ugly on their own in my opinion!
