Right now I am looking at a holder with the height 3 1/4" (from where the candle sits flush at the bottom to the rim) and the candle is 1 3/4" high from the bottom to the top of the wick. So there is about 1 1/2" clearance from the tip of the wick to the rim of the holder. Do you think this is enough of a clearance?
Thank you in advance!
I might be worried that it would blow out, there always seems to be some breeze coming from the ocean. But here are a few ideas to help: look at getting some decorative paper (about 6-8" tall). Wrap around the glass votive holder and use double sided tape to secure. This would add extra height, so that the wind may not affect it, and you can also use the colors for your wedding. You could also look for small latern style candle holders ( I know I have seen them at Michaels' craft store, they hold a tealight, not a votive) Or buy the battery operated tealights, they can't blow out!

It's a hard choice. They are both beautiful for their own reasons. We personally are doing the beach wedding.
