The Sand Ceremony has become very popular in blended families as well as outdoor weddings where the Unity Candle is not an option (wind : ). It can take on several forms, but the best part is the beautiful keepsake to be a part of your new life together as a couple and/or a family. As the sands can never again be separated . . . so shall it be with the new union.
It involves the multiple colored vessels of sand being poured together into the larger vessel while the minister explains the symbolism of the ceremony. It is a very touching addition to any wedding.
