Over the last many decades, the Unity Sand has always been the symbol of the joining of two families with the marriage of their children. There have been improvements in this norm and more sand ceremony kits for blended families are in the market. This days, step-parents aren’t left out in the ceremony. Instead of choosing one person to illuminate the place with candles, you can choose the best way to involve most family members.
Most couples today go for sand wedding ceremony during their marriage ceremonies instead of the traditional lighting of the unity candle. Some people mayn’t have heard about this kind of ceremonies yet they are so common especially during beach weddings. A table is put on the front side of the ceremony and colored with the best colorful styles one can think of. To signify top traditions, a vase is put on the table. Traditionally, this is important and it is often used to collect gifts and any contribution given to the couple during the marriage ceremony.
A complete wedding sand ceremony will have the couple each selecting a color for their family. These sand colors will then be poured down as their parents walk down the stage and this will signify the unity of the marriage ceremony. The small container will then be taken by the groom, bride or any of the parents and it will be set on the Unity Vase on the table. At the beginning of the ceremony, when uniting the two, the parents will then each walk to the table, take a container designed for them and labeled with place card holders and then put the sand on the unity vase. There is space to check when the other parties who attended the ceremony are still around or have left the wedding sand ceremony. There are options for the couples to decide whether they will want every generation to e represented by including small containers of sand that will present them as well.
The parents should take their seats for the ceremony to kick off. The decorated ceremony will then take their center stage for a longer period, for everybody to enjoy the union. As the marriage ceremony nears its end, the couple will pick the remaining containers of sand and pour them into the unity vase and seal it completely. For religious wedding ceremonies, it is from here that the religious leaders will bless the vase.
A wedding sand ceremony is one of its own and everybody will enjoy it. A sand is small on its own but when others are added, it will look big. Unity Sand is a symbol of unity of the couples just as it unity candle would have symbolized unity too. Even after the celebration is over, the couples will still have cherished gifts from their wedding sand ceremony to show.
