Has anyone ever seen this done? Did it work? Any issues?
For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, it is a unity ceremony that would occur near the end of the ceremony. Every guest would have their own small candle. The bride and groom would each take their unity candles and light each guest's candle sitting on the edge of the row. Then each guest lights the persons candle next to them, resulting in a whole room lit up with candle light. The reception is occurring immediately after in the same room so the guests would just take the candles to their tables.
I love the idea of this because 1) involving everyone in the ceremony since everyone is very close to us and have been a part of our relationship so far and 2) pretty pictures (I'll admit it) since it'll be dusk.
Do you see any huge issues? Do you hate the idea? Think it's a nice way to involve everyone? We haven't decided if we are going to do it or not so I'm trying to come up with pros/cons.
