Unity Sand Ceremony

  • Posted on October 17, 2011 at 6:45 pm

Something we do a lot and is becoming quite popular, is the unity sand ceremony.   There is an empty  middle vase and 2 side vases that are filled with colored sand.  The bride and groom pour  these 2 sands  which represent their separate lives  and when poured into the middle vase , the individual sands no longer exist and are joined as one. Same as your marriage.

If there are children from previous marriages that are now becoming part of this new family,  they can also be included to pour sand in the middle vase.  We like to have them take a handful of sand from the beach and add on top of  bride and grooms sand.

Most beach wedding companies will have their own reading and way of including in the ceremony so you just need to ask if you do not see it in their package.
