Unity candles represent the union of two people and their families. During a wedding ceremony, each party lights the large unity candle with a smaller taper candle. This symbolizes their future journey together as husband and wife.
A new trend in unity candles allows the bride and grooms to personalize the candle with names, monogram and wedding date, creating a wonderful keepsake for years to come. As a remembrance of their union many couples will take a moment to relight their unity candle on their anniversary or at the birth of their child.
Often times a couple will include their children in the ceremony to emphasize the uniting of two families. Extra tapers candles are used by each child to participate in this union.
Display your unity candle atop a mantle or corner table to actively display your new love and family throughout the years.
