I wrote about unity ceremonies not long ago. But I didn’t really cover all of the options available with a sand ceremony. When you chose to celebrate your union as husband and wife by performing a sand unity ceremony you will have a lasting memento afterward to cherish for years to come.
Each person will have a different color sand to represent them in the union. You can choose colors that compliment your wedding theme and style or go with something simple and traditional as black and white. The sand is stored in individual vases and poured together into a single larger vase to represent the union.
The vases or vessels you chose come in different shapes and sizes. I saw beautiful unity sand ceremony set that had heart shaped vases to hold all of the sand and I knew that would be the set I would want for myself. There were also wavy type shapes of vases that hold the sand. It really all depends on your style and what you are looking for. They can also be etched or engraved with the bride and groom’s names or initials. Having a personalized vase will really make it stand out when you display it in your home in the years to come.
