Charming Rustic Unity Candle Set
Take your woodland and nature-inspired wedding theme decorations to a whole new level with a lovely rustic wedding unity candle decor. Accent your pair of plain white taper candles and a white unity candle with jute burlap ribbon bows and small pine cones to reinforce the rustic theme. Place your beautiful unity candles on a round or rectangular wood slab or arrange the candles in a wooden candle holder centerpiece with artificial white baby breath florals for a whimsical wedding unity candle decoration.
Romantic Unity Candle Decor
Since candles and flowers are synonymous with romance and weddings, why not combine the two to create the ultimate wedding unity candle decoration. Adorn a rose gold pillar candle and a pair of rose gold taper candles with several mini craft flowers or wrap around white floral lace trim or tulle around the candles and attach silk flower heads for a whimsical appeal. You can also use floral candle rings as your unity candle stand.
Modish Unity Candle Decor
Whether you’re going for minimalist or avant-garde style decor, using geometric designs in your unity candle decoration is the ultimate way to infuse a modern flair into your ceremony. To put a modern twist on your otherwise plain white wedding unity candles, cut out strips of geometric design paper napkins and wrap them around the lower half of the candles. Cover the candles with wax paper and apply heat to stick the napkin onto the candles. Remove the wax paper and use our geometric candle holders to stylishly hold your elegant unity candles.
