can be a beautiful and moving way for you and your fiancé to show just how much you love each other on your big day without having to use the traditional candles. Not sure how a unity sand ceremony works? Here’s a quick and easy guide to make things simple.
What You Need
To have a unity sand ceremony on your wedding day, you’re going to need a few things, but don’t worry – they’re incredibly easy to find, as well as affordable. To get started, gather together three glass vases or designated sand ceremony vessels, like those found in the unity sand kits at Daisy-Days.com. Then, get some plain or colored sands.
What To Do
Once you’ve got all of your supplies, it’s time to actually do the ceremony. Start out by lining up your three glass vases with the largest of the three in the middle. The two outer vessels are going to be your sand containers. Next, pour equal amounts of sand in the two outer vessels, but leaving the middle one empty.
Then, as you come to the point in your wedding ceremony where you want to perform the unity sand ritual, have the groom take one of the smaller sand filled vessels and the bridal the other. Next, the groom will pour in a portion of his sand into the middle vessel. Afterwards, the bride will then add her portion. The unity sand ceremony
will continue as both bride and groom alternate putting in portions of his or her sand until finally, in the final pour, they combine their sands together, pouring at the same time. This completes the ceremony.
What It Means
The unity sand ceremony
holds much of the same significance as the unity candle ceremony, only the bride and groom use glass vessels and sand to show the coming together to form one life and one future. Sand is a beautiful and natural representation of the togetherness that marriage offers to a bride and groom and by alternating and then finally combining sands in the ceremony, both people show their commitment to respecting, loving, and honoring each other as they contribute to one life and one love.
