Sand Ceremony

Recommended Posts

I agree with crawford. I put the glass in my luggage wrapped tightly and on the way back from Jamaica I had it in my carryon corked and wrapped tightly. They just asked what it was and I said I got married and they just waved us by. No biggie!

 

Carly.. I also included mothers. They poured the sand first and we had the judge say something about mothers and such...

I wanted to do colored sand, but thought it might just be silly because it would be really difficult to get it home in it's original design from the ceremony...I'm considering just taking sand from the beach we are married on now...as for containers, bubble wrap and/or original packaging (depending on which containers I go with...)

My kids did sand art at a fair and if you fill the container up completely and it gets compacted with a little tapping on the table and a cork to seal it, it should retain its design. I was going to do a smaller container for this reason. And even if it got blended . . . each grain perfectly blended into on whole fam.

We did the sand ceremony with three differnt colors. Right after the ceremony i packed the rest of the bottle (about half of it) with beach sand and put a cork in the top. I kept it in my carry on purse wrapped in papre and a plastic bag. It was big! I made sure it stayed upright as much as i could. When we got home some of the sand had settled but none of the colored sand moved a bit. I love that I can have it on our mantle and it looks the exact same as all of the pictures with the exception of the beach sand. It is your day you can make anything happen!!!

I did the same. We got back to the room me and DH finished filled it together until it was full. Then we packed it with a cork and wrapped a plastic bag around the top with a rubber band. I kept it upright in our carry on. It barely settled after that and now it looks the same.

HI Denise,

 

I am also having a vow renewal this summer. I am new to this website and already in the freaking out stage. We will be married 20 years this July and this will be our first ceremony. I, too, want the sand ceremony so our kids can participate. I think it is a great idea. How old are your kids? Have you found any nice sayings for your sand ceremony? Also, how are you altering your wedding ceremony? I have a trillion questions..... I have just been contacted (the first time) by my WC and I feel I have so much left to do. Any ideas thrown my way would be awesome.

 

Thanks so much.....

Nicole

Sandframes.com is the website to purchase the frames with your picture and sand in it with a stopper. It's another neat idea. $69.99 for the wood frame and 2 cylinders of colored sand. Either way I love the sand ceremony idea.

 

At what point in the wedding ceremony do you do this?

Hi Nicole,
If you look at my vow renewal review in the Cabo forum, you can see a pic of our frame that we used in the background. I kept our frame upright in my carryon. The design is still the same, but sand leaked out of the bottom right hand corner. I don't know why. The only think that I can think of is that I took the front glass out prior to leaving because I was waiting to get a pic. Maybe I should have kept it in place?? My kids are 19 and 21. I used pieces from a couple different sand ceremonies and I think it worked out great. I altered the ceremony by finding a vow renewal ceremony and then personalized it to meet my feelings. After you look at my pics if you have any more question just feel free to ask away.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
