And then, reach out to us to help plan and capture your wedding day.
Wine Unity Ceremony
At the top of my list of Unity Ceremony Ideas is the Wine Ceremony. I’ll let you in on a little secret…it’s because I lived on a vineyard for awhile. Plus, I think it’s a super cute and sentimental idea that is great for vineyard weddings.
This unity ceremony requires a little prep work. You’l be writing love letters to each other and sealing them in envelopes. You could also do a copy of your vows. Then together you’ll seal the envelopes and bottle of wine in an engraved wooden box to be opened and enjoyed on your 10th wedding anniversary! So sweet, the wine and the sentiment!
Wine Ceremony Part Deux
Next Unity Ceremony ideas is a twist on the Wine Ceremony. In this version the couple each has their own glass of wine, one red and one white. They pour the wine together into a decanter and then share the glass to signify their union.
A very nice addition to this ceremony is to have both mother’s come forward after Mother’s Seating and pour the wine from bottles into the glasses for the couple to join later. What a sweet way to seal the deal. Which wine ceremony do you prefer?
Sand Unity Ceremony
An oldie but a goody is the Sand Unity Ceremony. It’s a goodie because there are SO MANY unique versions! There are so many colors, styles, shapes, and customized vessels that you can use for your unity sand ceremony.
The most popular version of this Unity Ceremony Idea is the couple only adding sand, but for couples who are joining together to become a blended family, this is a beautiful way to include your children in your promises to each other. See more about Children at Weddings in our other blog.
Candy Unity Ceremony Ideas
This Unity Ceremony idea is even sweeter than the wine ceremonies. Everything about the wedding pictured was unique, fun, and downright unusual right down to the unity ceremony. But, it reflected the couple, and their blended families, perfectly. Each person in the family had a jar of their own favorite candy which was poured into a larger jar representing the blending of the family as a unit. It also represented their fun and exciting outlook on life!
Just be careful when doing this unity ceremony idea if your favorites are M&M’s and Skittles. No one wants a mouthful of those candies at the same time! MMMMMM
Cross Unity Ceremony
The final unity ceremony idea on our list is the artistic cross unity ceremony. This handsome wooden cross is assembled while the pastor reads a description of the cross’s symbolism to your guests. The delicate inner workings symbolize the bride while the strong, straight outter shell symbolizes the groom. It’s supposed to represent how we come together to make a perfect union by balancing each other.
This unity ceremony is better for couples who take attending church and following religious observance as a serious part of their union. It’s a touching, sweet way to unite your beliefs with your marriage vows.
In conclusion, consider having a unity ceremony as part of your wedding day. There are many different ways to do this, and it can be a meaningful way to symbolize the joining of two families. If you are looking for ideas, here are a few to get you started. Whatever you choose, make sure it reflects your unique relationship and celebrates the beginning of your new life together.
