Use both.  Half of the tables get one tall pillar, the others get 2-3 tapers.

That should help with your desire for a second centerpiece as well.

I think in general centerpieces look better when there’s clusters.  One lone pillar might look a little lonely; a cluster of 2 – 3 candles of varying heights would look more interesting.  

As far as having 2 types of centerpieces–I think the fact that you’re using a bunch of different books the centerpieces will all end up having a slightly different but cohesive look.  Maybe on some tables you’ll have 2 big books and 3 candles and on other tables you’ll have 3 books and 2 candles.  So you’ll get the feel of the tables not all being cookie cutter replicas but they’ll all still be made of the same elements.

I think a grouping of pillar and votive candles would look more in scale than having tapers on top of the books. If you are talking about having the tapers to the side, I think I would still prefer the candles on top of the books.

You could also use teacups on top of some of the books -some with a candle inside the teacup, perhaps some with a single flower.

I like the idea of really pretty vintage picture frames with photos of you and your Fiance as children.
