If you're looking for a way to add to your wedding ceremony, why not consider a Unity Sand Ceremony? It's a perfect choice for outdoor weddings because you don't have to worry about a unity candle blowing out. And it creates a wonderful keepsake to remind you of your wedding day.
You can order the Unity Sand Ceremony supplies online (there are numerous vendors that sell the whole kit), but you can get all of your supplies much more inexpensively at your local craft store. You will need a large glass vase/container for the actual sand sculpture, and two smaller glass containers for the sand that represents the bride and groom. If you are combining families, you can add more containers for each child. One tip – make sure the openings are big enough – not only for the center container, but the smaller containers. There's nothing elegant about a groom smacking the bottom of the container like a ketchup bottle to release the sand.
A unity sand ceremony is meaningful and creates a lasting keepsake.
