I think a 9″ would work, but double check that the battery powered candles would work in water.  I find those ones also work best and look more realistic if they’re slightly obscured.

@jazmynxo:  THey have waterproof battery candles for water, but they aren’t that cheap. They sell them in Michaels in two packs.

If you aren’t “sold” on using mirrors, have you considered using charger plates instead?  We did!  I think it made the centerpieces look classier (unless, of course, you’re wanting the reflection of light from the candles).

@jazmynxo:  Don’t feel stupid!  Way better to figure that out now than on your wedding day when you go to set them up 🙂  I wasn’t allowed open flame at mine either, so I made little luminaries out of vellum to cover up the fact that they didn’t really look like real candles, and then was able to use the super cheap ones from Costco.
