    This is very pretty! Is the green funnel a leaf? I like it.

      sanchez0014 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?
      There is another post on here somewhere that has details on the wording for the sand ceremonies. Do a search for it. I think it's a really nice idea and I definitely plan to do it. i have to figure out our containers!

        [QUOTE=OneLove;31347--so....why have you decided against it? have you decided on something else?~andrea[/QUOTE]

        The reason I decided against it, is because I thought the true meaning of the sand cermony was the blending of the bride and grooms families to make one. With that said, since as of right now, no one on my side of the family is going it just doesn't feel right doing it without them there.

          I've included some websites below that have sets vase sets for a sand ceremony.

          Kensington Classics: Unity Sand Ceremony Vases

          Glass Pouring Ceremony Vases - Unity Ceremony -Unity Candle Sets, Unity Sand Ceremonies and Unity Candle Stands

          Unity Sand Ceremony Sets

          Wedding Favors: Nesting 3 Piece Bells Vase Set

          Sand Ceremony Unity Kit - CC-S3900

          Other ideas I've come across is for the middle vase using one that you already have. One I read about was she used her grandmothers vase for the middle.

            I think I seen a set that the center vase has a cap on the top of it so that you can travel back with it.

              the sand ceremony is the alternate to the unity candle I believe. You do the unity candle to signify your two seperate people coming together as one. Our pastor told us we could either blow out the single taper candles to signify we were both one...or keep them lit to signify that we are a unified couple, but still individuals...I like the second option and think that the reason people do the sand thing, is candles on the beach might be difficult. plus like Ali said, its a nice keepsake since you cannot really keep your flowers...
              Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

                So for the brides that already got married or the ones that are planning on doing this, how did you get your vase (filled) back to the states?

                  I love all the sand ceremony ideas, but has anyone seen any with covers? I really wish all the ones posted had covers, I think they're all so pretty, but I want to be able to bring it home with me.
