Alternative to Unity Candle | Toledo Wedding Planner | Your Perfect Day | Perryburg Wedding Planner

If you are looking for a truly unique and special unity ceremony for your wedding, check out these alternatives to the unity candle. They are sure to be a memorable beginning to a beautiful marriage!


Love Letter Ceremony

For this wedding unity ceremony, the couple each writes a love letter to the other before the wedding. During the love letter ceremony vows are spoken, and the letters are put into a box and sealed; either nailed closed by the couple and the minister or double locked with different locks, each having one key. On the couple’s first anniversary the box is opened and each read the letter written to them by their spouse. (The box can also contain a bottle of wine, photos and other mementos.)


Truce Bell

A bell is rung on the wedding day, the happiest day of the couple's lives and then is placed in a central location in the home. If the couple starts to argue, one of them can ring the truce bell, reminding them both of that happiness and hopefully ending the disagreement quickly.


Celtic Oathing Stone

The couple holds or puts their hands on a stone during their vows to "set them in stone" This is where the phrase comes from, or so the rumor goes.

Thanks to for these unique ideas!

Your Perfect Day... because you deserve it!
