The Rising Popularity of a Sand Ceremony
A sand ceremony involves a symbolic blending of two different-colored sands into a single vessel. Two separate bottles of sand represent separate lives, families, and friends. It represents your lives before your wedding day and symbolizes the individual you are.
At the respective time during your wedding when you are ready to pour the sand into one vase, the groom pours a portion of his sand into the large vase. The bride then pours a portion of her sand on top of the grooms sand. Then, together, the bride and the groom pour the remaining sand into the large vase. As the containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be, symbolizing “two become one”.
Sand unity sets are a beautiful alternative to the traditional unity candle, and are more versatile when used in outdoor settings and destination weddings. Sand unity sets are a chic and sentimental way of showing your love and the life you plan to live together. They can be used as a symbolic centerpiece in your home after the wedding.
