I am a wedding planner, and my brides always request candlelight. Can you recommend any really high quality LED candles to put in candelabras and candle holders, or if you have any great tips for dealing with candle wax?

We all love the ambiance of candlelight.  I find that a onetime investment in LED, battery-operated candles is the way to go.  They work particularly well as pillar candles but are not as convincing as tapers.  If I have to use artificial tapers I sometimes use small lampshades to make them look more authentic.
