There's a new tradition for destination weddings and outdoor ceremonies - instead of lighting a unity candle, pour colorful sand from two vases into one larger vase to symbolize your union. Choose from thirteen sand colors - one for the bride and one for the groom. The vases are sold in a set of three (two 6 3/4" tall vases that hold 4 ounces of sand each for the bride and groom and one 9 3/4" tall vase that holds 13 ounces of sand). Large vases may be engraved with your first names and wedding date. All vases have corks to keep sand from spilling. A white paper funnel is included for easy pouring. Specify names and date for large vase. Sand sold separately.
The lettering for the personalization is lighter than I expected,I almost missed it when I unwrapped the bottle.Overall, I think it will be perfect for our outdoor ceremony and as a keepsake.

This set was the perfect choice! Not only was it the most affordable set that I found but it included everything that I would need to make this a great keepsake. Even came with the funnel for pouring the sand. We personalized it with our names and wedding date - the engraving was spot on!

I love the product, I have not used it yet because my wedding is not here yet, but I loved the way it looked on the computer and even more when it arrived. Fast delivery.
Exactly what I was looking for

This was a good value for the price, and was one of the cheaper Unity Sand sets I saw anywhere...especially personalized! I do wish that the letters were a tad bit bigger...when I was creating it on the website, it didn't show the different sizes.

We're having a destination wedding so this was perfect for pre-filling our sand in. I used masking tape to secure the tops for shipment to Hawaii =)
I buy this product all the time

I am a Wedding Officiant and one of the packages I offer includes everything my clients need for a unity sand ceremony. I only use this set, and I buy it quite often. My couples love the personalization of course, but also the fact that all three pieces have corks, as since I am an officiant in Palm Beach FL, I have a lot of people coming for destination weddings, and having the corks makes transporting the set back easier.

We at first loved this product. It looked very nice and worked great for our ceremony. Except when we went to move the vase from the table we had it on the sand was running out of the bottom which had a small hole in it that wasn't visible to the eye. I'm really sad that i lost that memory from our ceremony. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT
Great for Display

The personalized names on the large vase looks very nice. I like that is has cork tops so I don't have to worry about it spilling if knocked over while displaying it.
Third vase not included

The product is great, the engraving is great, the only thing about this set is they count the funnel as the third piece, you have to buy the second smaller vase separately. The smaller vases are smaller than I had expected but over all I am happy with my purchase.
Just what we were looking for!

We were looking for something at a good size to use in our wedding as an alternative to a unity candle. We love the engraving detail as it is done very nicely. Service was fast and easy. Packaging was well put together considering all is glass.
