I’m having a fall rustic wedding and want to do a unity ceremony with candles. What kind of candles am I supposed to use and is there a certain candle set style for rustic weddings?
Unity Candle Sets for Rustic Weddings
Fantastic question! I love a unity candle ceremony — it’s a very sweet and memorable detail of the wedding ceremony. (We go more in-depth on unity ceremony ideas if you want more information on how it’s done.) If you are having a rustic wedding, you will absolutely want to tie in a more natural or earthy-inspired unity candle set. It will coordinate with your surrounding decor to create a cohesive, pulled-together look. Plus, after the wedding, you’ll have a keepsake candle set that you can use for anniversary dinners or dinner parties to come! Now, let’s get down to business, shall we?
What Kind of Candles to Use
A unity candle set contains three parts: one central pillar candle and two taper candles. All three candles have their own individual candle holders. For a rustic wedding, look for a candle holder set that is:
o made of wood
o has a distressed, weathered or “worn-in” look
You may also see unity candles that have a jute twine or burlap ribbon and/or wood monogram. These are great details to make your unity candle set more personalized.
