Remember Loved Ones with a Wedding Memorial Candle
Some people make the world special just by being in it, which is why they are missed on every joyous occasion.
Weddings in general are happy and joyous occasions. They are a celebration of the unity of a man with his wife and a uniting of two families. Unfortunately, some very dear friends and relatives have passed away before being a part of the wedding. Now an increasing number of couples are choosing their wedding as the perfect occasion to remember loved ones who were not able to be part of it.
Remembering loved ones on such a joyous occasion may seem like setting a mellow mood to many. But, to others it is the perfect way to pay homage to those who were so special to them when they were alive. A wedding is one of the most cherished occasion in ones life. Then what better time to remember the deceased loved ones. They must have really wanted to be a part of the wedding too. Then why not make them a part of your wedding by saying a few words about them and lighting a memorial candle
in their honor.
To honor the memory of dear relatives and friend the newly married couple lights a memorial candle
along with the unity candles
. These memorial candles
are lit as part of the unity candle lighting ceremony. Memorial candles
are similar to personalized unity candles. They can be round and are available in white or ivory. The name of the deceased is printed on the candle with a personalized inscription. While a personalized unity candle
has the name or initials of the bride and groom and the wedding date printed on it.
If there are more than one deceased relative or friend that you want to honor at your wedding, you can add up to three names written on one candle. Or simply buy separate wedding memorial candles
as well as the unity candles
can then be kept as part of memoirs from the wedding ceremony.
