The Unity Ceremony usually occurs after the exchange of the wedding rings and before the pronouncement of commitment. Here are a few ideas, but there are many more unity ceremonies to choose from!
Sand Ceremony - The couple each pour different colored sand into one glass/vessel symbolizing how their lives have become intertwined.
Unity Candle - The couple each take a lit candle and simultaneously light a third larger "unity candle." They may blow out their individual lights, or leave them lit, symbolizing that they have not lost their individuality in their unity.
Tasting of the 4 Elements - The couple taste four flavors that represent different emotions (the highs and lows) within a relationship, typically sour, bitter, hot and sweet.
Jumping the Broom with a modern twist - An African-American tradition that has its roots in slavery times when slaves couldn't marry. Typically the family places the broom on the ground, and the couple jumps over it together. The broom can then decorate a place of honor in their home.
