I don’t think I’d use that instead of a unity candle but I like it as something for us to do in private the night before the wedding. We’re doing a family unity candle since I have two girls from a previous marriage.

We were going to do a planting ceremony but the more I thought about it the more I decided it just wasn’t us.

Check out the unity cross and God’s Knot. We’re doing a unity candle and God’s Knot, but bought the unity cross for our home! 🙂

Have you thought about doing a hand’s ceremony? 

We are going to incorperate this into our ceremony…

I’ve seen some couple’s do a wedding ‘experiment’. Basically a simple mixture of liquids that react, bubble and overflow. I think it’s great to represent the two separate people being joined together and their love overflowing/becoming more than what they were before.

I also saw a unity cocktail but personally not a fan of that idea.

ETA: Red liquor in one glass, blue in the other became purple when mixed.

We did the love letter/winebox as part of our ceremony and it fit us well, since we did a lot of wine tasting while we were dating.  There were a number of people at our wedding who commented on what a great idea it was.

Here’s a photo of the box and letters before it was sealed.

@Luayne:  The science nerd in me loves that so much. The girl in me wonders what happens when something explodes all over your dress!

@Luayne:  What an amazing idea! My Fiance and I both have science backgrounds (he’s an engineer and my physiology degree has taken me through 3 years of chemistry in college) and I just love that idea. Thanks for posting about it!

@chasesgirl:  I think they just used something simple…like baking soda and vinegar…so no explosions! Although my FH would think that’s awesome! lol
