Much like a unity candle, sand ceremonies symbolize the coming together of two people in the most beautiful and important ritual of marriage. However, the coming together isn't over a flame or candle. This ceremony is the blending of grains of sand, much like the moments that helped to make that relationship so special. So, as you look to decide what to do during your ceremony, keep in mind the beauty and timelessness of sand ceremony vases.
What You Need For a Sand Ceremony
To perform a sand ceremony, you need Sand Ceremony Vases
or a Sand Ceremony Kit
and some sand. Feel free to get creative with different colored sands or sands from vacation destinations that you two have both enjoyed. That's it. It's really simple and incredibly easy.
Performing a Unity Sand Ceremony
To start out with, the groom will pour a portion of his sand, which is contained in a sand ceremony vase, into a larger and more central glass vase to create the first layer. Next, the bride will pour a portion of her sand into the same central vase, forming a second layer. The bride and groom will then alternate until they decide to combine their remaining portions of sand together in the same layer. This will end the ceremony and will seal the ritual. From there, the newlyweds can display their Sand Ceremony Vases
with dried flowers, shells, candles, or as a stand alone decoration. That's it – it's beautiful, simple, and a totally unique way for couples to celebrate their union.
Great for beach weddings or for any wedding theme that simply wants an alternative to a unity candle, Sand Ceremonies represent a beautiful and timeless tradition that's sure to add something even more special to your occasion.
