The individual candles represent two lives coming together as one. The one being the big candle. How are you planning to light the big candle together? You could just have two taper candles prelit before the ceremony.

We’ve both been baptised and were given candles at our baptisms that we are using to light our wedding candle.

I made our wedding candle

We did not have these…our church did not allow and said it’s not Catholic though I know others in same diocese who did have these. We were fine with it. I’d ask whoever is in charge, esp if optional

We had our marriage candle and two smaller candles next to it. When our parents entered they lit the two smaller ones together from a candle that was already lit. Then we lit our candle from our parents’ candles.

littleb33 : Where did the ceremony booklets come from? If they’re templates from the internet or a vendor, you should run them past your church. Catholic ceremonies can be very proscribed, with little room for customizing.
