A unity sand ceremony is a lovely addition to include when you are planning a wedding. There is a beautiful meaning behind it plus, after the ceremony, you are left with a wonderful memento to display in your home.
What is a Sand Ceremony?
This particular type of wedding unity ceremony expresses the coming together of two people when two different colors of sand are poured from individual containers into a shared one. If the bride and/or groom already have children, more sand colors may be added so that the kids can participate too. In this case, the ceremony symbolizes the joining of two families.
Sand Ceremony Basics
Your chosen sand ceremony set should be displayed someplace easy to get to during the wedding ceremony. The main container will be empty and the sands that will be used will be in separate individual containers. Many meaningful sand ceremony readings can be found online and your officiant is sure to have ideas on this subject too.
At the appropriate point in the service, the two of you will take turns pouring your sand color into the main container. A layered effect always looks nice with each person taking turns pouring a portion of their sand in until the container is full.
So Many Beautiful Choices
You will find a wonderful variety of unity sand sets at WhereBridesGo.com, as well as many different sand color choices. Many of these sets can be personalized too. Vases and decorative glass containers show off the colorful sands beautifully.
Frames are another great option for your unity sand ceremony. Some have sayings or your names and wedding date printed on the front. Another has a spot where you can place an engagement photo or a picture of your newly forming family to make this keepsake even more personal. You can even replace the photo later with a wedding portrait if you like.
We also carry some very unique hourglass sets in our online wedding store that can be used for this wedding unity ceremony. Not just for looks, they can also be used later as an actual hourglass!
