Nowadays, more couples are incorporating the unity candle ceremony in the wedding ceremony. What are unity candles? Unity candles symbolize the wedding ceremony’s essence: two people becoming one while retaining their own identities. They are visible symbols of couples’ commitments to each other.

The couple, each holding a candle, lights a third slightly larger candle. You could also opt to have your parents help in lighting the candle. Couples could blow out the individual flames after or all three candles may remain lit throughout the rest of the ceremony.

Be sure to consult with your parish priest if you could incorporate this special ceremony in the wedding rites.
