Unity Candle Songs List, Best 54Matthew Campbell

unity candle songsThe Unity Candle event takes place during the wedding ceremony after the bride and groom exchange their vows.  Typically, the bride lights a single candle for herself and the groom lights a single candle for himself.  Then, the bride and groom light their “unity candle” together with their single lit candles.  A unity candle song is played during the unity candle lighting ceremony.

Another great show of bringing families together through matrimony is to have parents and/or grandparents light candles and then pass the candles onto their respective daughter, bride, and son, groom.  The bride and groom then light their unity candle together.

Unity candles are a big business to candle companies.  They come in all sorts of sizes and colors.  For the do-it-yourself bride and groom, they can buy a standard candle.  Then, the candle can be decorated in your wedding colors with ribbon, beads and whatever suits your fancy.  Unity candles can be purchased as a single candle or in a candelabra setting with a single tapered candle on each side of the official unity candle.  To view and purchase unity candles, please visit our wedding shop.

Traditional wedding Unity Candle songs celebrate the union of the bride and groom.  Bridal couples can select romantic pop songs I Was Meant To Be With You by Diamond Rio, True Companion by Marc Cohn and Give Me Forever (I Do) by John Tesh.  Bridal couples can also select instrumental songs perfect for church weddings like Wedding Song by Kenny G.  Since the candles are being lit, a theme appropriate song would be You Light Up My Life by Debby Boone.

An alternative to the unity candle songs ceremony is the unity sand ceremony.  The unity sand ceremony can be done after the vows are read, as the unity candle ceremony would be, or while the vows are read. The sand ceremony uses multiple sand colors to fill a glass container such as a vase.  The bride and groom take turns filling a glass vase, or also known as the unity vase.  The sand colors can be coordinated with the bridal couple’s wedding colors.  The same unity candle songs above are also fitting for the sand ceremony.
