"What Is A Unity Candle?"
The Unity Candle is a relatively
new tradition, only becoming popular about a decade ago. They tend to
be more prevalent in Protestant churches or wedding ceremonies not conducted
in church. Many Catholic and Jewish nuptials do not usually include
it in the ceremony, since the Unity Candle is not a part of the traditional
wedding liturgy. Couples use two lit taper candles, symbolizing their
individuality, to light one large pillar candle as a symbol of the marriage
commitment and their two lives becoming one. Others view the Unity Candle
as a symbol of family unity and as part of the processional the mothers
of the Bride and Groom light a taper candle in honor of their son or
daughter at the altar. They return to their seats, and the tapers remain
lit throughout the ceremony. After the vows have been said and the rings
have been exchanged, the minister asks the Bride and Groom to take their
individual taper candles and use them to light a larger candle, making
one flame with their two. This symbolizes the joining of the families
as well as the joining of the happy couple themselves. During the lighting
of the Unity Candle, many couples will have a song played or a poem
recited to accompany the ceremony.
Some wedding sites will not allow
you to light candles and you should find out if your site will allow
it, before you get your heart set on it. Those that do will want you
to provide no drip candles. Make sure that the place for the candle
lighting is protected from breezes. Before the ceremony, the wick should
be trimmed to slightly more than a 1/4 inch and be straight up for ease
of lighting and to allow the candle to burn evenly.
