    It’s been my experience that venues don’t mess around with things like this.  If that’s their rule, you should respect it.

    Can you just use tealights instead of votive candles in the votive holders? They will have to be replaced during the reception but you can designate someone to do that.

    If you need to a get a fire permit for your venue then they are dead serious about this.  Our venue has the same inch requirement.  I think they will enforce this.

    I wouldn’t risk getting caught because then they might charge you for breaking a rule or something.  If you get a fine it might even cost more that it would have been to get the taller votives.  I would personally fork out the money it its in your budget.

    What about this?? So then IF something happened the water would make the flame go out…

    Some flowers in the center with maybe some wine glasses with water and floating candles around it…
