Sand Ceremony???

Has anyone heard of this?  We got engaged on the beach (as per the pic), and our time spend in Northern Michigan growing up at our summer cottages is a huge part of who we are.  We thought it would be really fitting to include a sand ceremony in place of the unity candle.  We would combine sand from our respective beaches to symbolize the intertwining of our lives.  Have you seen this before?  Any ideas for glass containers to use?  Places to buy them?  Thanks!

Yes, its very common and it would be great for you two since its so sentimental...


You could also use colored sand from your local craft store- or sentimental sand that you two may have kept (haha we keep sand from our travels- I know were wierd!)

We're doing the same thing!  This is the one I bought http://www.daisy-days.com/personalized-unity-sand-ceremony-set.html


We personalized the center vase with our wedding date.  It came in, and I love it!  I just bought the sand at a craft store.

Ask your officiant - they may have some good selections too - many customize the wording to match your situation.

We are using a sand cermeony as an alternative to the unity candle because our wedding is outside. We will use pink and white sand.


I think its a great idea. A unique touch to the ceremony and you can keep the sand forever.

We are doing the sand ceremony too since we are doing a DW on the beach.  I have a post on it on my bio if you want to take a look.
