    I was wondering because it is so windy on the beach (from what past brides have said) is anyone still considering using some sort of candle in their centerpiece or is this even feasible?? Any input would be great. Thanks!

        I am using the centerpiece selection that has a hurricane surrounded my flowers with the candle in the hurricane. Is it windy on the beach or more towards the wedding gazebo only? Hmmm past DC brides help please!!!

          we had our reception on the terrace, so I don't know if its the same on the beach, but I had small square votive holders, with tealights in them, and they wouldn't stay lit at all.

          I would assume its windy at the beach too only because that whole side of the resort by the tower is really windy. When you walk down the walkway to the tower building you get hit with wind, when you lay by the pool by the tower its windy (which is really nice when you're really hungover and don't want to get too hot, lol)

            I have been wondering about this as well!

            I have heard many brides say "it was really windy that time of year" - is there a time of year that it is not as windy? I am thinking about getting married there late April...

            Or is it windy at dusk, and then the wind dies down??

            And I was also thinking about having candles on my tables at the beach, tealights in "sheltered" holders and/or hurricanes - any other past brides have experience with this?

            I wouldn't even be SO disappointed to find out that my candles won't stay lit, but would hate to hear that the wind was so much that it interfered with the fun of the festivities!

              Have you seen these fake candle thingies? My mom had them at her wedding and they worked great! A lot of companies have them so check around for the best prices!

                  Do they last pretty long? Were they expensive? MIL suggested these to us!

                    I feel like this is hard to explain. It is very windy, but it's not really annoying windy or windy where it will ruin your wedding, it's just breezy I guess, lol!

                    It's so hard for me to describe to you because the wind didn't really bother us too much, yes I had a few stray pieces of hair that I wished were pinned down better because they were blowing in my face, but it was so hot that the wind was actually a nice relief.

                    I know this probably makes no sense, but you'll know what I mean when you get there.

                      We tried to have a unity candle during our beach ceremony at Dreams PV and even though we used a hurricane holder (glass holder that completely surrounded the candle) we could not get the candle to stay lit. So after several attempts, we just skipped this part of the ceremony and moved on. We didn't miss it at all!
