I’ve never seen any real “etiquette” about this. We are doing a Remembrance Candle – singular.

In case this helps, here is what our candle card says:

In Loving Memory

      Of Those

Forever In Our Hearts

 

We figured that way, it was vague enough that it covered anyone. In the last few years, both sides have lost so many people. 🙁 This way, we feel like everyone is incorporated without getting too specific, or trying to do one for each person.

We are using one candle….

I really do not see the reason or need for several……

This is such a personal matter I don’t think it’s an etiquette question. It’s about what you want and feel good about. Everyone should accomodate that.

Ohhh, I love this idea. We were looking for a way to honour loved ones we would have loved to attend our special day, but unfortunately passed before it happened. We thought photos, but we wanted to display them tastefully and didn’t want that to look like a funeral either. I love the candle idea. I might do this instead. Thanks. 🙂
