Using two glasses, bottles or decanters different colored sand, the bride and groom pour into a single container (The Unity Vase) while reciting special statements or votes. As different colored sand melts into The Unity Vase will form a new co-lor. The Unity Vase usually saved as a keepsake wedding ceremony and kept on display in the house of the couple. Bride and groom affirm their love by the lighting of a unity candle, by having each side candle and lighting it together. This special candle then be-comes their wedding or commitment anniversary candle to light this day every year from the rest of their lives. Their streams of light flow together and a single brighter light goes from their united being. Butterflies represent Love, good wishes that re-turn to us as true. If you give them as a present or set free at your wedding, you will be sharing a sign of dreams coming true, of good wishes and everlasting love.
