The Unity Candle is arguably one of the most touching moments during a wedding ceremony. The Knot Shop has an exquisite collection of Unity Candles and accessories to make this moment truly special. From beautiful Unity Candles to decorative sets to personalized candles, you will find everything you need to recreate this emotional and symbolic moment.
The Unity Candle is one of the oldest and most regarded traditions of the classic wedding ceremony. The candle itself is a representation of the friendship, loyalty and love shared by the couple, and couples who choose to adhere to this tradition usually set aside several moments during the ceremony for the lighting of the Unity Candle. During this touching moment, the bride and groom light the Unity Candle together to symbolize joining forever as one. Many couples keep the candle for years, and some re-light the candle together on every anniversary as a reminder of the vows they took on their wedding day.
Nowadays, some couples are choosing to replace the Unity Candle with a Unity Sand ceremony. It is a personal touch with all the same beauty and time-honored symbolism. The Wedding Shop also carries Unity Sand kits among our lovely collection.
