Unity candles are usually frilly, which did not suit this wedding at all. No lace, no beads... This is a 5 minute untiy candle set using a pillar and two tapers. The candles are simply wrapped with the matching ribbon and have a crystal monogram layered right on. Anyone can do this. You can use double sided tape or hot glue for the ribbon.
Just thought I'd share as an idea for inexpensive and non-froo froo wedding stuff. I wish I had this picture in color but that wedding was a while back. Eh, you get the idea. :)
