Everything You Need to Know About a Wedding Sand Ceremony

Soon-to-be-married couples these days are opting for more modern methods of tying the knot such as choosing to have a wedding sand ceremony instead of the conventional unity candle lighting ceremony. What happens during the traditional candle lighting ceremony is that the bride and the groom will have their own candles and then will be lighting together a bigger candle to symbolize their being united.

On the other hand, when it comes to a wedding sand ceremony, the couple will still be reciting their unity only that they will no longer be lighting a unity pillar candle but will be making use of wedding ceremonial sand. There are a lot of reasons why more and more couples are thinking of having a wedding sand ceremony not just so they can have a better creative keepsake but also so that they will not have to worry about not being able to light up their candles. During a wedding sand ceremony the groom and the bride will be pouring their respective sand for them to be a creative keepsake for their wedding.

Once the wedding is finished, you and your spouse will then be keeping in you a container that represents the special day that the both of you have been united as one.

If you get a unity sand set, you should expect to have a two small vases or tubes and a large glass vase. What happens during the wedding ceremony is that the mothers of both bride and groom will be filling with sand the tow small glass vases or tubes and will place them beside the large glass vase. Wedding ceremony sands come in different colors and the couple has the freedom to be choosing what color of wedding ceremony sand they want to have.

What to expect during the wedding sand ceremony

At the start of the wedding, it will be the officiant who will be pouring down the white sand into the large glass vase to mean that faith of the couple in their relationship. After that, the groom will start pouring a small amount of his own sand into the main glass vase. The groom will then give way to his bride and let the bride pour down as well the colored sand that she has into the main vase.

Layers of sand will then be created by both the bride and groom as they each have to pour their color sands in layers. If both of them will almost empty their colored sands, it is then time for them to pour both colored sands altogether to finish their unity ceremony.
