    Are many brides having a sand ceremony? What type of container are you using for the ceremony?

        I'm planning to do a sand ceremony. I saw this idea and liked it. I might do something similar. http://www.photo.pic......& Dan223.jpg

            Same questionss for me!! What are you doing instead of the sand ceremony? I was told the candle just wont hold up at the location.

            I love that pic as well, love the shells!!

                We chose a sand ceremony for ours and brought down sand to match our wedding colours and then we found this little bottle in a craft store and used it to pour our sand in and then sealed it closed with some glue and a cork! It looks really neat and its a great keepsake for us since we couldn't bring flowers back or anything like that! Anyways here's a picture of what it looked like too!

                  I'm sorry to sound like an idiot but what does a sand ceremony signify and can you do it at any resort as part of the ceremony?

                    I was just wondering the same thing, what the heck is a sand ceremony. Details people, we need details.

                      The sand ceremony is used to signify the coming together of the bride and groom into one. So the sand is mixed together (bride and groom each pouring one) and symbolizes the new couple that you become together. Does that make sense....not sure if I described it very well..
