What is the role of the unity candle in the wedding ceremony?
During the wedding ceremony in many cases as a part of the ceremony the couple will light the unity candle. This is a ceremony where the bride & groom each use a taper candle (beforehand lit by the mothers) to light the center pillar candle together. The new flame symbolizes their unity as a couple. This process often includes three candles – one pillar (the unity candle) and two taper candles. To make the ceremony easier to manage and to display it all in a beautiful way to the guests, a unity candle stand is often used. Unity candle stands come in all shapes, sizes, styles, and finishes. Materials that stands are made from include metal plated in silver or brass, glass which can be engraved, as well as other materials such as molded resin.
If you would like to gift a unity candle stands to someone, you may consider gifting them the actual unity candle set as well to ensure the items match. Another thing to consider when gifting any wedding item is that it coordinates with their wedding theme and personal tastes.
