Unity Candles

My husband and I were originally not going to use unity candles, but I thought it would be a nice thing to incorporate into our short ceremony.  Unity candles are used to represent the love of the two families for the Bride and Groom coming together as one happy family.  Usually there are two taper candles and one pillar.  The parents of the bride and groom light the tapers and in turn the bride and groom light the pillar candle with the tapers making the union complete. 

I used a pretty taffeta ribbon that has a great sheen to it and accented with a coordinating rhinestone button.  You can pick any ribbon/button combo you like, I just happen to love purple colors, so that’s what I used here.

Note:  Before you look into having a unity candle, be sure to ask your venue if you can have live flames from candles.  Some places will not allow them.

 Direction

Wrap the ribbon around the pillar candle and tie into a bow.  Sew the rhinestone button to the middle of the knot.  The same technique can be used for the taper candles as well, the rhinestone button can be left off the tapers and just a simple small bow tied towards the bottom.

Fall Sewing Buttons

It’s that time of year again.  What time you may ask?  It’s time to pack up your summer clothes and bring out those coats and jackets.  Fall is just around the corner.  Matter of fact it’s on the 22nd of September.  Which is not too long after NYC’s fasthion week. 

If you’re considering a make-over for your jackets, blazers and coats, then M&J Trimming can definitely be of assistance.  Simply changing the buttons can make a big difference.  You can find an assortment of jacket buttons, blazer buttons, coat buttons, sewing buttons, and fashion buttons on the website
