Anyone doing a candle ceremony??

Recommended Posts

Just curious what happens with these. I think the symbology of the candles is pretty cool. i know I was interested in doing a sand ceremony but I threw that out the window a while ago. I want to do something cool for our 15 minute ceremony. LOL


Anyone performing a candle ceremony? or seen one?

I don't know really... maybe I need to see one to really understand what the sand ceremony is. haha


I got some ideas about the candle ceremoney now. I think our Mom's should each light a candle at the begining of the ceremony and then at some point me and Jared can light a bigger candle from the flames of our Mom's? Does that sound cheesey??!

Since we're getting marred in the gazebo (not on the beach) do you think the wind will still be a factor? Sorry if that's a dumb question... i guess it IS still outside. Hmmmmmm

I like it, very pretty!


Does anyone know if there are any other options besides candles or sand? I wanted to do the sand ceremony, but FI was married before and they did the sand ceremony, grrr, so I don't really want any part of our wedding to be anythingl like his first wedding. I know sounds stupid, can you tell I don't particularly like his first wife!


I may do the sand ceremony anyway, but if I can find something I like thats different I would prefer to do that.


Melissa, you know what I saw the other day that may work well for candles. I saw these cracked mosaic vases, that were kind of tall, I thought about buying them for the reception and just putting pillar candles in them, but the candle would be low enough where I don't think the wind would blow it out. That might work, if you put the candles inside of something.

Jill, what about the "hand ceremony"


Melissa, If you do a candle ceremony, just be sure to put them in say a hurricane vase or something that is taller then the actual candles. I think it can still be done, but even in a gazebo I would be affraid the wind would blow the candles out.
