    Quick question for those who got married on the beach or is planning on doing a beach reception...I am thinking of doing a simple rose bouquet in a vase with votive candles around it as centerpieces. However, it can get really windy in the evenings so I think if I get a deeper holder then I should be fine. 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!

      Nikki,

       

      I am not sure what's like in Mexico in May but it was pretty windy for us on the beach in October. We thought we had a good clearance from the tip of the wick to the rim of the holder but every one of them went out sometime during the night. I think it's really depends on the weather. I posted some pictures of our reception tables.

        Hi Ladies.

         

        I am putting together a list of item I am planning to sell. I thought I give you a sneak peak of some of the items you might be interested. Let me know - please PM me.

         

         

        27 - White Finger Starfish 3" to 4" - we decided not to assign our guest seats so did not use any of our new white finger starfish. I am planning to sell them for $22.

        Swarovski Crystal Blue Starfish Brooch - I was planning to use in my bouquet or something... but never used it. I am planning to sell it for $15.

          Thanks for the info, I'd love to see pics of your flowers once they arrive and to hear about your experience. Thanks again for sharing!

              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!

              Good luck.

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

                Hi Ladies! Does anyone know how much Lomas charges for coloured table clothes? I wanted to see if we had options beyond the white at the hotel but I can't find anything but coloured runners on the Lomas site.

                 

                Thanks!

                    Thanks for the pictures Chong!! Nice centerpieces!! They were similar to what I had in mind. Did you use the regular votive holders? In your first picture the holders looked deeper but in your second picture they looked just like any regular votive holders.
