No modern wedding ceremony is complete without a unity candle lighting ceremony. A relatively new tradition, the lighting of the wedding unity candles signifies the bringing together of two separate lives into one.
The traditional ceremony usually begins with the bride and groom each holding a lit taper candle. The two then come together to light a large pillar candle from the two separate flames of their individual wedding unity candles. The ceremony is complete when the couple puts out the flames of their separate candles, leaving the one, single flame glowing for all to see.
If you are looking to bring a bit of old world charm into your wedding ceremony, the Sparkling Entwined Unity Candle & Taper Set is an excellent option. With its romantic appeal, this wedding unity candle set really dazzles from an embroidered appliqué accented with Swarovski crystals. Like most of our wedding unity candle sets, this set includes a single pillar candle and two tapers.
The Starlight Unity Candle & Tapers is another radiant option. The stunning Starlight Unity Candle is embellished with a combination of Swarovski crystals and glass pearls, making it shimmer like a twinkling star. The brilliance of this wedding unity candle will be sure to dazzle your guests.
Beach themes have also become very popular recently. Both the four-piece Sand Ceremony Unity Set
and the Beach Unity Candle & Tapers
sets are an excellent complement to this theme. Just as the sand in the Sand Ceremony wedding unity candles set is combined, never to be separated again... so shall your love! The Beach Unity Candle & Tapers wedding unity candle set includes tropical candles adorned with real starfish embellished with diamond dust and Swarovski crystals arranged by hand to create a sparkling sensation.
The Floating Memorial Candle and Vase
is an incredibly unique way to honor those you love. The engraved words scrolling across the vase read, “Forever in our Hearts... Forever in our Lives” and are separated by a personalized engraved name and date. This set may be filled with water and topped with a white floating candle which sits suspended above the engraving, glowing throughout the wedding ceremony.
