I consider an open flame to be a taper/column candle that is not in a glass hurricane.

But you should really confirm this with your venue as their definition could be completely different, and it would suck to have bought all these candles that you cannot use.

If all else fails get some electric tea lights

confirm with your venue- most we talked to allow hurricanes, or candles that are shorter than the top of the votive, etc. that they’re in. So candlesticks are out, votives/hurricanes are ok.

Our venue explained candles can be used provided they are enclosed and the flame does not reach above the top of the holder. Our candles are standard 1 inch tea lights in 2 inch glass holders.

call your venue to be sure, I have known some to consider any flame an ‘open’ flame. but generally it is something not protected by a jar or class… make sure you call your venue to be sure!
