My fiancé and I are doing a unity candle. He wants to have his mom and my mom light the 2 smaller candles. (His mom would light one and my mom would light one). We would follow our mom up (me behind my mom, him behind his) and then once the smaller ones were lit, we would take them and together light the big one.
My question: Is this how it is normally done? Is it a problem doing it this way?
