Pew markers are used to reserve pews or rows at the church or ceremony site for immediate family members.
This beautiful unity candle stands at the alter area of the church on a wrought iron stand adorned with florals. There are three pillar candles in which each Mother, when escorted down the aisle during the processional, will light one of the pencil candles held with a ribbon and light each side pillar candle. There should be a votive candle on the stand to light the pencil candles. During the ceremony, the bride and groom will each take a pencil candle, light it from the side pillars that their Mother’s lit and join together to light the middle pillar.
