Need help finding bridal shower candle poem

Hi!

Does anyone know the candle poem that you use for bridal showers? I'm not sure if I am making send here. But I think has to do with different colored candles symbolizing the years of marriage. SOrry if I am being too vague!

TIA!

Re: Need help finding bridal shower candle poem

I think this is what you are talking about:

Candlelight Shower
This sentimental shower is for a small group...turn out the lights and host the shower by candlelight. A candlelight dinner would be especially nice, but candles on the cake and a basket of candles with this poem is essential...

A Basket of Candles
For [insert Bride's name]

A basket of candles that come in a pair
In all different colors, for you two to share
The white ones burn first
They are wrapped in white lace
To celebrate your first married night
In your new chosen place.
The green pair is taller, and also much thinner
Burn with the first company, you have over for dinner.
The dark blue candles are for after your first fight
Use them to burn while making up all night.
Pink candles set the mood and pave the way
For your first married Valentine’s Day.
Now, when your first year of marriage is through
The cream anniversary pair, will light for you two.
Red candles aflame, both your futures are bright
Celebrate promotions you’ve worked toward with all of your might.
By this time we hope, maybe, just maybe
You can light the purple ones, on the birth of your baby.
And just when you thought you’d put these away
Take the light blue ones out-for your fifth anniversary day.
Now just one more pair left - for the big 2 5
The anniversary pair that will keep your love alive.
Congratulations [insert Bride and Groom's names]
On the start of your forever
May the two of you always be happy together
And burn these candles
Just the way we said
But please don’t forget-blow them out before bed!

Yep that is it. My MIL did it for me at my shower. I love all the candles, although I am bad at lighting them when I am supposed to.

I love that idea. I just copied it and mailed it to my mom for my shower. I hope she likes the idea as well.
