Sand Ceremony


What is a Sand Ceremony?

The Unity Sand Ceremony is one of the most popular elements in today's weddings.  Often taking the place of the traditional unity candle ceremony.  The Sand Ceremony is much better suited to outdoors and places that don’t allow candles.  Also it is a great way to involve family members and children in the ceremony.  These Sand Ceremony vases can be personalized with names, dates, monograms and even logos. Also many companies offer the miniature Family Sand Ceremony vases so that you may include your parents or children in the Sand Ceremony.


Like the unity candle, the sand is used to symbolize the uniting of the bride and groom. Their separate lives are symbolized by two vials of sand (usually different colors). After the exchange of rings, the officiant explains the meaning of the Unity Ceremony. The Bride and Groom then come together, and pour into one vial, the two individual vials of sand. Their flowing together symbolizes the joining of the couple as they share their first experience of unity as husband and wife. The newly formed union is represented by the intertwined pattern of sand created by the couple.  The commingling of the colored sand is an impressive demonstration of two into one.

In those cases where children are involved, couples simply add additional vials with different colors of sand and incorporate the children in the Unity Ceremony It is a safe and meaningful way to symbolize the new blended family.

The vases can be engraved with initials, names or the wedding date making them a spectacular keepsake for years to come.   Keep in mind that there are many different vials and containers available, and a lot of creative ideas so shop around do your homework and i am sure you will find the ones perfect for your wedding day.
