This is a ceremony that tells everyone that the two mothers are in favor of this marriage and they wish the bride and groom happiness and long life.
These candles are in place before the ceremony begins. Usually on the same side where the brides maids will stand.
The mothers unity candle is lighted after both Mothers have been escorted in. One of the Groomsmen will need a book of matches or a lighter to help each mother light a side candle. Once both side candles are lighted, the mothers together light the middle.
