This bridal poem uses taper candles to mark special events in the life of a married couple. The wedding poem mentions taper candles in 9 colors which we have put into a beautiful gift box which can be given as wedding gift or a bridal shower gift. This wedding poem candle set is decorated with a ribbon and a elegant image on the lid. The 12″ tall tapers have the standard base of 7/8″ so they will fit into most taper holders. The “smaller and thinner” taper candles are 10″ tall and have a base of 1/2″.
