You’ve walked down the aisle and you’ve said your vows. Now it’s time to unite your love in a ceremony that’s all your own. Consider lighting a unity candle or having a unity sand ceremony for this special part of your wedding. Unity candles consist of 3 candles – two taper candles and one main central pillar candle. Parents or a family member from each side of the family light a taper candle before they are seated for the wedding ceremony. When ready, the bride and groom each take a pre-lit taper and together use the flames to light the main central pillar candle. The taper candles are blown out and the single united flame remains as a symbol of your love united. This candle can be kept as a keepsake and lit again on anniversaries to remind you of the vows you took on your wedding day.
