When I added DIY to the front of Unity, all I could think of removing the n and t – DIY UIY. I’m pronouncing it Dooey Yooey in my head. Carry on.
I’ve seen the tradition at most weddings I’ve been to and didn’t question keeping it for a moment. Lamber-manner-macho-man likes to say that my favorite wedding planning is “breaking the mold.” However, in this tradition, I’ve decided to let my little light shine. The symbolism is just, well, the essence of what marriage means: the joining of two into one. Amen.
AnyDIY, these are the supplies that I collected for this project:
The DIY to this is so insanely easy, it’s almost not fair.
See? Overlapping and folded into a nice edge. No rocket science here.
5. Repeat with each candle.
6. Stick them into or on their holders. I plan on using this after the wedding in my home.
5 and 6 are really just common sense. If you can pull a trigger, you can do this project!
And here’s the finished product:
Holy overexposed unity candle, Batman! Sadly, this is what happens in my apartment after dark. The ole point’n’shoot wants to use a flash. Boo. But you get the idea.
Is there a special tradition that you’re looking forward to doing for the ceremony?
P.S. – if you need a good laugh, look up “Unity Candle” on Wikipedia. My favorite line is: “The lighting ceremony may be accompanied by special music, an explanation of the symbolism, or just some period of mutual gazing by the happy couple.” Happy “mutual gazing”!
