Sand Ceremony & Unity Sand Ceremony
The sand ceremony is a beautiful alternative to the traditional unity candle ceremony, especially if you're planning to have a destination wedding or an outdoor wedding. You don't have to worry about lighting the candles in the breeze or having the unity candle blow out shortly after lighting it. The unity sand ceremony is an easy, beautiful way to symbolize two hearts becoming one. All you need is one large vase, two small vases and two different colors of sand. Simply add sand of your choice to each of the smaller vases and pour it into the larger vase to blend. You can even represent your faith by having your officiant begin the sand ceremony by pouring white sand as the base. You're left with a wonderful wedding keepsake to display in your home for many, many years. If you prefer to keep with tradition and have a unity candle ceremony, check out our great selection of wedding candles.
