The Unity Wine Ceremony serves the same purpose as the Unity Candle Ceremony. The wine ceremony is conducted as follows: usually there is a table that is set-up with the wine, both red wine and white wine in single carafes. These two wines are mix together into a large carafe. The groom pours the red wine and the bride pours the white wine. These two wines together create a blush wine. The groom then takes the large carafe of blush wine, and pours some into a glass for the bride. The bride then does the same for the groom. Lastly, the groom toasts to his bride, usually, "Now our lives are one," and drinks. Then, she reciprocates the same toast back to him and she drinks. The officiant states that the wine ceremony signifies their union and commitment to each other. This trend originated from French Wine Country Tradition and was performed when two vineyard owners married.
