Unity Candles at outdoor ceremony
My niece will be married outdoors, near the Chesapeake Bay. She and her fiance want to have a Unity Candly ceremony and she has asked me to work out the details.
I'm sure it will be breezy. Right now I plan to have the tapers in individual hurricane lamps that are wider at the top so they can reach in to get the candles, although I'm worried that it will still be awkward. The unity candle will be in a regular hurricane chimney and will be easy to reach.
Any ideas about a better way to do this?? Also, how do you decorate around the candles?
I really don't want to mess this up. I believe they will not be doing the "mothers lighting the candles" thing because my niece's mother (my sister) is no longer living.
That's the reason I want this to go smoothly -- because I am doing it for my sister. They will also have a candle in her memory and my niece is wearing my sister's wedding dress.
