Unity Candle & Sand Ceremony
The Unity Candle or Sand Ceremony typically takes place during the wedding ceremony after the couple has exchanged their vows. In the case of a unity candle, a single candle is lit by the bride for herself, and the groom lights a single candle for himself. Then, using their single lit candles, the bride and groom light their Unity Candle together, as a symbolic representation of their wedding ceremony.
As an alternative to the Unity Candle, some couples will perform the Sand Ceremony. Two vases—one for the bride, one for the groom—are filled with two different colors of sand. During the Sand Ceremony, the couple pours the sand from their individual vases into one giant vase. Symbolically, it represents the blending of two families into one.
