4 UNIQUE OPTIONS TO REPLACE THE UNITY CANDLE

The unity candle has been an important part of ceremonies for decades. It represents two lives merged. Plus, you get a decoration piece to use in your home that came directly from the ceremony. However, I think we can all agree the unity candle is a little dated &....over done. 

YOUR UNITY PIECE SHOULD DO 2 THINGS:

1. Your unity portion of the ceremony should represent both of you as a couple. Don't do a religious cross if your not religious. Don't do what is expected, do what matters to you!

2. Choose a unity piece/symbol that you could see yourself using in your home decor. Don't pick something you will want to hide. Choose something you like and can go with your style at home as well.
