The unity ceremony is a common part of wedding ceremonies from all cultures. It symbolizes the two individuals or families coming together as one. Before I got married, when I thought “unity ceremony” I immediately thought of the unity candle. You know, the two small taper candles that the bride and groom use to light a fat candle. And that fat candle will sit in their house to collect dust and maybe even melt in Arizona! But that is no longer the only option! There are many unique unity ceremonies from you to choose from (or create your own!). This is a great opportunity to personalize your wedding ceremony without breaking traditions.
