Our wedding is in 3 days. We have a unity candle but it just dawned on me that I don’t know who is going to light the 2 single candles that we use to light the center one. What normally happens? My mom can’t do it because she is maid of honor and my dad is walking me down the aisle. Also at what point does it get lit? Before ceremony? During ceremony? Please help!!

I didn’t have one but at my brother’s wedding the mom’s did it. I don’t think there is any reason why your mom can’t be your maid of honor and also light the unity candle.

Your parents and his could light it as part of the unity candle ceremony before you two light the big candle.

Usually the mothers light the first two candles after they’re escorted down the aisle (so before the processional has begun). You can change the order a bit and have the moms do it once they’re all present in the sanctuary (church wedding?).
