The wedding unity candle ceremony involves three candles, two small candles on either side of one large candle. The symbolism of this ceremony involves two separate lit candles, which are the lives of the bride and groom. From each candle the bride and groom take the flame and, together, light the middle candle to symbolize the joining of their lives. Unity candles are available in a large variety of styles, from plain to very elaborate. For those who love details, try a set of unity candles with Calla Lilies or Roses sculpted on the surface. These candles are usually more expensive than the simpler ones but do add a beautiful touch to the wedding unity candle ceremony. If your wedding is a themed wedding check to see if a wedding unity candle is available in your theme. For a beach themed wedding use a wedding unity candle with Silver Star fish embossed on them. For a more decorative candle choose one with a lattice pearl design or delicate flowers on the surface. These wedding unity candles may cost a bit more but will be worth it for their beauty.
