Emergency Help Needed Now

Two weeks ago my daughter decided to get married. Guess what its TODAY. She is doing a unity candle and for the life of me I cant remember how the mothers get them lit if there are no other candles. It was suppose to be outside but because of rain its inside now. I didnt help plan this because she kept it from me because she knew I didnt want her to get married right now. I did go buy her a dress when I found out she didnt have one. Please help

I've always seen the unity candle in between two other candles. The other candles represent the two families, then when they come together & light the unity candle, it's symbolic of the families joining.

You should be able to pick up a couple of plain candles and candlesticks even at the dollar store if you need to.

Best wishes for your daughter and her marriage. I know it's hard when our kids aren't making the decisions we would want them to make, but you're a good mom for being there and supporting her anyway. ((hugs))

I know the mothers light rhe two taper candles and thats how the bride and groom light the unity candle. How do we get the taper candles lit? Most ive seen there are candleabras to use to light the two taper ones. She dont have that. Im hoping the answer isnt a lighter

 kim, i have seen it done several ways..

1. tapered already light before the ceremony starts and guests are just starting to arrive or before guests arrive.  so anyone could light them with anything.

2. the moms light the candles before the processional.  they carry tapered candles.

3. the parents light the candles before the processional.  they use tapered candles.
