  • poll: Ditch the Candelabra?

    Keep the candelabra and try it with the taper candles

    Sell you the candelabras and try short candle holders

    Put fake flowers in the candleabra (include some tips!!)

    They’re really beautiful, but if you’re worried about wind, you may want to try something else.  I had 2 tall candelabras framing the alter during the wedding ceremony… indoors, mind you, and the draft from the A/C had the candles on one melted almost totally away after only 1 hour.

    I would use fake candles if the wind is going to an issue.  Real taper candles burn quicker than columns and the dripping wax could become a problem.  The holders are gorgeous so use them!

    Keep the candelabras!!!!!!  I am using candelabras as well – and I will be using these peg votive holders (above) with mine because taper candles (though they look beautiful) often get wax everywhere.

    Hope this helps!!!

    I was going to say to ditch the candelabras because I thnk they’re too tall and I think the wind would send wax everywhere, but I like the holders the PP put up, so I think those could work, if you want to keep the candelabras.

    I love the candelabras! I like the idea of using the votive holders in them! Do you know where these candelabras are from?
