Unity Candle Songs

(and music for other special parts of the ceremony)

The unity candle ceremony used to be a feature of only the occasional wedding back in the 60s when my parents got married. Now it's pretty much a standard element of every wedding ceremony. Of course, now that it's so common, people are coming up with new and creative variations on the idea, which can make it more meaningful again instead of cliché. This site had some interesting alternatives to a unity candle - I particularly liked the unity tree (bet you're curious now!).

Whether you choose a unity candle, a sand ceremony or some other unique expression of uniting two into one, there are some really beautiful music options to accompany this part of the wedding ceremony.

Some of the unity candle song titles below are definitely appropriate for a unity candle ceremony. Others are simply good songs to have as special music in some other part of the ceremony. We had a group of singers sing a song that was special to the both of us, and they sang it right after the wedding party and I had all walked in but before the minister began the main part of the ceremony. It helped to set the theme and mood of the service.
