Sand Ceremony

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to know what you all thought of our sand ceremony wording. Since we are doing a vow renewal I changed it up a bit. Let me know what you all think.

 

The Family (Children) Ceremony

UNITY SAND BLENDING

 

We are all members of one family, Godâ€s family. Today as (Roy) and (Denise) have sealed their re-commitment to each other they too want to make a commitment to their children. We recognize the significant role that (Brandon) and (Ashley) play in this re-commetment celebrated today. They will now join (Roy) and (Denise) in this re-commitment to each other by contributing a part of each individual person into one blended family. Today, this relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these (4) individual containers of sand, each representing a member of the family in all that they were, all that that they are, and all that they will ever be. As each individualâ€s sand is poured into the familyâ€s one united common container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as the grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will become the bond with your family.

IMO I think that some of the wording implies that 2 separate families are being blended with the vow renewal, especially with the references to the children. I just think that it could be confusing....just my 2 cents.

I need a suggestion of what color sand to go with. I am using the sand frame and I want 4 different colors. The 2 main colors are teal and coral. My bouquet is going to have coral, yellow and orange roses with greenery added. I am thinking of coral, teal, yellow and not sure what to use for the 4th color. I am thinking if I pick orange it might me too close to the coral. Any suggestions or opinions? I would greatly appreciate it.

 

TIA

So, I have heard this song a gabillion times but I was driving in my truck and heard it and thought of you for some reason lol. You should totally use it at some point in your vow renewal!!

 

I'd love you all over again

 

Has it been ten years

Since we said "i do"

I've always heard marriage made one seem like two

But you're looking better than you did back then

You still make this old heart give in

 

(chorus)

And if i had it to do all over

I'd do it all over again

If tomorrow i found one more chance to begin

I'd love you all over again

 

The preacher man said "til death do us part"

That seemed like forever to a young man's heart

Now the days seem much shorter

The longer we love

And the memories just keep adding up

 

(repeat chorus)

 

If tomorrow i found one more chance to begin

I'd love you all over again

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
