I don't have an answer for this but just wanted to say if you haven't checked with your venue make sure they allow real candles! My friend almost had a meltdown when she found it her venue doesn't allow real candles, luckily they made an exception for her.
Our's only allowed candles inside of glass, so I agree with prior poster and check first. Fire regulations ...
Quickcandles.com may be an option. I also agree to check with your venue. Some say no open flames at all, at my venue you have to make sure that something can catch the wax but candles are otherwise okay.
I'm doing all vintage candlesticks too. Some will be brass but I found tons of glass ones that I have applied gold glitter with mod podge..bc I don't want them all the same. All different shapes and sizes. Got them all at goodwill. The brass ones I spray painted with antique gold spray paint! I'm using real wax fake taper candles though for the reason of not having them melt down completely!
I am employed as the Banquet Coordinator for the reception venu so I do know for sure that we allow real flame candles. I know there are a lot of places that don't allow that. I found some brass candle sticks at antique/variety malls (junk stores) near me. I found some on EBay but the shipping is $$.
In my past experiences I know some candles burn out fast and leave a huge mess. I have seen some that last longer and look better.... I just don't know what brand!
I asked my venue about using taper candles and was informed that there needs to be a way to prevent the wax from making a mess, so I googled "glass hurricane for taper candle" or something similar and up came bobeches. They are the glass rings that will catch the wax, which may help you in part.
Please be careful with taper candles. they leave stains of wax. last time I bought mine at https://candlemania.ie/, maybe you can find something for you tere. I would like to have a lot of candles on my wedding but we will see
