What Should you Know About Wedding Sand? Although wedding sand ceremonies or unity sand ceremonies have been there for a very long time, they are now becoming popular at a time when many people are leaving their traditions, for instance, the unity candle ceremony. There is no clear origin of this ceremony, but some people believe that it was first practiced by either the Native Americans or the Hawaiians, and that this practice symbolizes the nature of marriage. In the beginning, the groom and his bride would only take sand and then throw it into the wind. The minute grains of sand of the two would mix up and make it impossible to separate the two, and this was a sign of their joining together in marriage. The current unity sand wedding has now become a part of the main wedding ceremony, and this activity takes place just after the couple has been pronounced as husband and wife. This is supposed to be their initial task that they jointly do together after marriage.

How a Sand Wedding Ceremony Works Here are four main steps of a basic wedding sand ceremony.
How I Achieved Maximum Success with Events
1. A small table is placed at the center of the sand wedding ceremony location and a glass vase placed on the center of the table. The vase often has engravings of the couple’s names or initials and the date of their wedding. 2. Two other small vases containing differently colored sands are placed on next to the main glass vase; one is for the bride and the other for the gloom. The color of the sands can match that of your wedding. 3. In the sand wedding ceremony, the groom and bride take turns in pouring the sand from their smaller vases into the big vase, and create different layers. 4. Lastly, they both pour the sand from their individual vases into the central vase causing the two colors to mix and impossible to separate, this is a sign of their unity together in marriage. A reading or a poem can be recited as the couples pour the sand. There are usually three different sand wedding ceremonies. 1. Religious dissimilarities 2. Parents’ differences. 3. Children dissimilarities. Sand ceremony weddings are often ideal for outdoor or informal weddings, especially beach weddings since the sand can be collected from the venue, and this will give the wedding more impact. If you are unable to hold your wedding close to the beach, you can pre-order the wedding sand ceremony kits including any color of sand you choose. You can choose to have the central glass vase sealed with special wax after the ceremony is over to make a perfect keepsake of such a memorable day.
