My Fiance and I are lighting a unity candle and a memorial candle (got beautiful ones at WreathArtist on Etsy – LOVE), one of my bridesmaids will be singing a song during this time (piano background is planned). We had originally planned for Ave Maria but my Fiance grandmother died recently and that would be much too emotional for his family. So we are trying to come up with idea for what song to play.
Therefore – what song are you playing? Do you have any suggestions, are church is quite particular that it be something religious (hymn, classical, etc) so I’m struggling to find something that is not too memorial and is appropriate for the lighting of both candles. Suggestions for resources are also welcome!
I never thought of having music for the Unity Candle lighting…I always figured it wouldn’t take that long. BUT now that I’m thinking about having it, I’d probably play The Butterfly Waltz softly in the background. It doesn’t have any lyrics though.
