The Unity Ceremony, while a recent addition to traditional wedding ceremonies, is quite popular. The ceremony symbolizes the joining of two individuals as one in marriage, and it can also represent the joining of families and the love they hold for the bride and groom. Typically, unity candle sets are used, but sand ceremony sets are gaining popularity as well. The act of combining two flames to light a single candle, or the combining of sand of different colors and joining them as one, is a beautiful representation of the couple as well as the joining of families in marriage.
