Our Five Candle Unity Candle Holder is not like all the other unity candle holders on the market that are cheap and flimsy affairs intended to be used one time and thrown away.
Now you can have an elegant keepsake of substance and beauty that becomes a souvenir of your special day for years to come.
It will look wonderful on a mantle or bookcase and can be the valued table centerpiece at all your future anniversary dinners.
To expand and make the Unity Candle-Lighting Ceremony more meaningful, we have added two more candles so the bride and groom can include the parents, or other special people if the parents are unavailable.
Since the idea of adding the parents was so well received, why not include the guests? So we have. Now everyone who comes to your wedding can be an active participant, making it truly meaningful and memorable!

“We will now preform the Five Candles Unity Candle-Lighting Ceremony.
The ushers will start by lighting the guest candles on the back rows. Your candle
will be lit by someone behind you and your row will light the row in front. Those on
the grooms side represent his friends, family, and community and those on the
bride's side hers.”
“Everyone, please stand.”
Cue music to start.
Ushers start lighting the guests candles in the back rows.
The candle holder with five candles is moved into place.
The bride and groom walk around behind the candle holder facing the audience.
When the lighting gets to the front, the parents’ candles will be lit. (If a parent is not available, friends or family may fill these positions.)
The minister asks everyone to
But the parents remain standing and, on the signal from the minister, walk up. (If there is music, they may wait until it finishes.)
Together, the parents of the bride light the candle on her end of the candle holder.
Then the groom’s parents light the end candle on his side.
The bride will take the next candle on her side and lights it from the candle her parents lit.
The groom performs the corresponding action on his side.
Then the bride and groom, together, light the top middle candle symbolizing their union and marriage with the support of their friends, family, and community. They then replace the middle side candles they are holding back in the candle holder.
The minister says,
“Lets all give our applause of support and approval for this marriage.” (or, for “John and Mary's marriage”)
When the bride and groom’s table is set up at the reception, the candle holder is placed on the table and the candles lit before the wedding party and guests arrive.
For anniversary celebrations in the years to come, the Five Candles candle holder can be the table centerpiece at the anniversary dinners. The husband and wife may ritualistically light the candles again as an affirmation of their love and marriage.
Many wedding are celebrated outdoors making it hard to light candles and keep them lit. For this and whatever other reasons that may come up, you may want to have your unity candle lighting ceremony at the reception.
You could have your guests each take a candle from a table and divide up into the Bride and Groom’s side of the room.
The Ushers or the Maid of Honor and the Best Man could start the candles being lit from the back of the room. Guests would then pass the light forward, candle to candle, until the Parents’ candles are lit.
Each set of Parents together light the candles on their child’s the end of the candle holder. (The Bride and Groom are standing behind the candle holder facing the room.)
The Bride and Groom take the next candles and light them from the end candles.
The Bride and Groom light the middle candle together.
NEXT, you could have drinks passed around to everyone. The toasts made by the Best Man and the Maid of Honor or whoever is doing the toast, (toasts). Everyone drinks to the Bride and Groom. Everyone blows out their candles. The lights come back up. Everyone takes their seats and the cake-cutting begins.
“Include your guests in the ceremony. Most ceremonies are a passive, almost theatrical experience, where most guests are the audience. I think involving them in different ways can have a profound effect on the rest of the celebration.” --Yifat Oren, owner of LA-based event design company Yifat Oren & Associates
