A unity candle is a larger candle with a wide diameter, that is often decorated to match a wedding theme, or personalized with the names of the bride and groom. A complete set includes two tapers (or smaller candles) and a base for the unity candle. Unity Candles symbolize the bride and groom family’s joining together in unity to become one family. On the other hand, some couples may use it to symbolize their love and commitment to each other, as their two lives become one.
Personalized Unity Candles: When Two Become One
Personalized unity candles are the candles used during the unity portion of the wedding ceremony. At that point in the ceremony, the bride and groom light a unity candle together to signify the melting of their lives into one being.
The unity candle ceremony itself is comprised of two long taper candles and the bigger unity candle. The mothers of the bride and groom will both light one of the taper candles before the ceremony begins. Then the bride and groom will each take the taper candle that their own mother lit and light the middle unity candle.
After the unity candle is lit, the bride and groom either blow out their candles to signify that they are completely one now, or they can place them side-by-side with the unity candle to show that they are one, but still retain their individuality.
Personalized unity candles have increased in popularity as the wedding industry continues to boom. Personalized unity candles are unity candles that have some sort of personalization added to them by the marrying couple. Personalized unity candles can have anything from their names to a favorite quote inscribed into the candle. The couple can then save this as a reminder of the most important day of their lives.
