    I am not sure I would give a flower girl a candle to carry, doesn’t sound the safest thing.  But if would be cool for the BMs and GMs.  You might think about battery operated ones.

    I think that is a beautiful and unique idea! If you are worried about pictures, dress up your hurricanes with some long strands of beads hanging from the bottom or something to that effect so that it will be a bit more ornate and more easily identified as a bouquet replacement.

    I really love the idea of this, I think it would be gorgeous! But I can understand what they mean about the flower girl… maybe give her some flowers to throw instead? Although I think that depends on how old she is. And if they still aren’t all about the idea, think about adding flowers in some other way? Maybe attatch some to the candle holders themselves? Don’t ask me what the logistics of that would be, but in my head it looks pretty.

    We used to hold candles in Catholic School mass for certain Saints days.  Somebody always gets burned with dripping wax.  Just a thought

    Would your budget allow you to have candles for the ceremony, but then change to flowers for the photos?

    I like the idea of candles, but think they would look a bit odd in photos, especially since im assuming that it would be full daylight by the time you got to having photos taken? I dont think the candles would have the same effect in daylight as what they would at sunrise/twilight.

    I’m terrified of fire so I would hate to be your flower girl. But as someone just looking at them, I’d think it was very pretty.
