My reception site requires 3″ between the top of a flame and the top of the surrounding glass (hurricane/vase)…. 3″ is soo much! I have all different heights of candles and glass, but with these rules I cant use my super cute votive holders. Any suggestions for flameless candles (fake flame) that dont look like crap??

I’ve seen some tealights at craft stores like Michael’s and if you were going to sink them down in glass pebbles or sand they wouldn’t look so fake. Also check out this website:
They have some rather nice looking flameless candles. Good luck!!!!

I saw some once outside a pub where you don’t actually see the tea lights just the holder thing with a little flickering light in, I didn’t notice that they weren’t real until I picked it up to light my cigarette – oh the fool I felt!!

You could also create some kind of “effect” on the glass so that you can’t “see” the fake flicker candles themselves, just the soft light created and the flicker. Frosting the glass, perhaps?

Frosting is a good idea….but they are small votive size, so guests can still see the fake crap from the top. hahah. Maybe Ill just scrap em all together. 🙂

What if you frost the whole thing and place them upside down over the candles? Then it would be like a luminary
I once saw a table (not for a wedding) that they used colored glass domes over those fake candles so all you saw was the flickering – they were really pretty.
