Discussing :: A New Twist on the Unity Candle

The unity candle is a common part of any ceremony. It's a time when the bride and groom show the significance of the union by uniting two flames into one large flame. But, a lot of couples are also leaning away from the unity candle and searching for new ways to do the unity candle, but without the candles. Well, here is a list of ideas you can use in your ceremony that express the same significance, just in a different way.   Sand ceremony. This is where you chose three different colors of sand.

I imagine that one of the reasons for these new symbols of marriage are being incorporated into wedding ceremonies is the fact that more and more weddings are secular rather than religious events. Not only are secular ceremonies often quite short, but they may lack anything reflecting the magic of the union and it’s deeper meaning. It’s no wonder couples are keen to find a way to make their ceremony more ‘special’.

I’ve read about all sorts of rituals in other societies and I love those rooted in tradition. I’ve heard of African couples jumping over a broom to symbolize the beginning of a new life. Most people are familiar with the glass stomping ceremony at the end of Jewish weddings which symbolises “many pieces, many years and many blessings together”. Hindu tradition has the groom ride a horse to the ceremony and he bride have henna designs adorning her hands and feet. Greek brides tuck a sugar cube in their glove to ‘sweeten’ the union. A traditional ‘hair cutting’ ceremony is included in Cambodian weddings (cutting away any evil!). I recall seeing several weddings in France where after the ceremony, the couple were driven around the ‘village’ with the headlights on and the horn constantly beeping – not sure if that had any symbolism or was just an expression of joy!

Some other ideas NZ ideas I’ve heard of that I rather like are:
sealed ‘love letters’ the bride and groom have written to each other being locked in a box to open at a pre-determined time in the future.
The exchange of roses between the bride and groom and their families, the rose being a symbol of love and thus the sharing of the love between the parties.

Here is a video of a Vietnamese wedding. Lots of interesting traditions here. Note the extensive use of red which is considered the colour of good luck and thought to ward off evil spirits.

I think its great that folk can find something that means something to THEM rather than a ritual that is just that, a ritual with no feeling or meaning. WE are all different, and different things touch us to the heart
