Wedding Poem Candle Set

Updated on October 24, 2014

A Wedding Poem Candle Set Makes a Great Gift

If you are struggling to find the perfect wedding or bridal shower gift for your friend or family member, give them a wedding poem candle set. This gift is functional, beautiful, and affordable. The candles and wedding poem come in an attractive gift box wrapped in ribbon. The candle poem set includes 9 pair of different color tapers which correspond with the lines in poem. A copy of the poem is placed on a thick card so it will stay in good condition for a long time.

A lot of people who know about the bridal poem candle set try to find all the colored tapers on their own. Usually, that is tons of work and requires trips to a lot of different stores or hours of surfing the internet to get the taper candles that match the poem. This set is already to go.

Copy of the Wedding Poem

Here is how the bridal poem in the candle set reads...

A box of candles that come in a pair,

of all different colors, for you two to share.

The white ones burn first, they are wrapped in white lace,

to celebrate the first night in your new chosen place.

The mauve pair is smaller, and thinner,

they burn with your first company over for dinner.

There are candles to burn Christmas Eve, before bed,

your first Christmas married, that's why they are red.

The navy candles are for your first fight;

use them to burn when making up all night.

Pink candles will set the mood and pave the way

for your very first married Valentine's Day.

Now when your first year of marriage is through,

the Ivory anniversary pair will light for you two.

By this time we hope maybe, just maybe,

you could burn the yellow ones on the birth of your baby.

And just when you thought you could put these away;

take the light blue ones for your fifth anniversary day.

Now just one pair left for the big "25",

the anniversary pair that will keep your love alive.

So congratulations both of you on the start of your "forever",

may the two of you always be happy together.

And burn these candles just like I said,

but please don't forget to blow them out before bed!

There are a couple of variations of the poem where some of the colors are different and the event might be changed but this candle set goes together perfectly.

Optional Accessories to Include with the Wedding Poem Candle Set

If you want to add some other things to your gift of the wedding poem set there are quite a few accessories to chose from. The candle gift box does not include any holders. A nice item to add would be a pair taper holders for standard size taper candles. Most people already own taper candle holders but a new pair is nice too and you can buy them fairly inexpensively.

A less common item you can add with your gift is a pair of taper candle holders for "slim" tapers. These holders for taper candles only 1/2" in diameter. The wedding poem candle set includes a pair of thinner tapers and most likely your friend or family member will not have a pair of holders readily available.

There are also things called bobeches which are disks with a hole in the center (like a doughnut). The bobeches sit on top of the candle holder with the taper going through it. The purpose of the bobeches is to catch any wax that may drip from a leaning taper candle or one that might be in a drafty area. Bobeches come in all kinds of decorative styles and are usually made out of either glass or plastic. A nicely decorated pair of these would make a nice addition to the candle set.

If you have ever had a set of tapers that were just a little too small for the candle holder you know how frustrating it was to get the candles to stand up straight. There is a product called stick-um which was made to help with that problem. Just a little bit of this tacky wax in the bottom of your taper holder will keep their tapers standing straight.

Give The Wedding Poem At The Bridal Shower

Even though this wedding poem and candle set are often given at the wedding, many times it is used as a bridal shower gift too. This gift has the potential to be more than just an present you hand to the bride to be. With a little creativity it can be something she will remember forever. For example, one mother printed 9 copies of the wedding poem, 1 for each line. Then when she gave the gift to her daughter, each line of the poem was read by a guest at the bridal shower. Another option would be to give the bride something fun to correspond with each line of the poem when it is read.
