Many couples opt to have a Unity Ceremony at their weddings. Some light the Unity Candle, while others pour Unity Sand into a glass vase. The ceremony symbolizes the couple’s eternal joining of their lives. The unity candle ceremony uses two taper candles with a large Unity Candle in the center. At the beginning of the wedding ceremony, a representative from each family light the two taper candles. Later in the ceremony the bride and groom use the two taper candles to light the Unity Candle together, uniting them together. The Unity Candle symbolizes the union of two individuals, becoming one in commitment. The taper candles are lit by member from each family to symbolize the love and loyalty that each family has for the couple. As the bride and groom use these two flames to light the unity candle, they bring the love of both families together in a united love. The Unity Sand Ceremony is a popular alternative to the Unity Candle Ceremony. There is an everlasting symbolism to Unity Sand. The different colors of sand represent the individual lives of the bride and groom. Combined into a single sand ceremony vase, the layers of color show that both the bride and groom each keep their individual identities and personalities, but it’s impossible to define the exact point where one layer ends and the next begins. The grains of sand can never be separated, representing the couple’s union.
