My Sand Ceremony Sand Came!

Recommended Posts

I ordered my sand from 60+ Wedding Sand Ceremony Colors! after reading about Carly's good experience with them.

Total including shipping for 4 lbs was only like $20.00!

I ordered 1 lb each of colors to match my Davids Bridal dresses, Pool, Ivory, Truffle and also a Latte color that is sort of just a nice sandy color. BUT instead of Ivory, I ended up with Banana, even tho the packing slip says Ivory! OOPS sad.gif so I called them, and left a message but they were closed for the day (South Dakota time, to my Seattle time). Anyways, hopefully we get that sorted out, but for now, here are pics!

Truffle and Latte

All 4 with our containers, I got them at Ikea for $0.99 each! Also the candle in the middle, I got at Target and the color matches perfectly, so I'm burning it down almost all the way, but leaaving some at the bottom, and then we'll use it to pour the sand into, it has a lid that attaches snugly so the sand won't pour out.

Close up of the containers and the candle, you can almost see a bit of the lid under the candle.

wink.gifHi Abbie,

I like the colors. You never really know when you order online what the color will actually look like when you get it. I hope they can switch it for you.

actually in this case it wasn't me, it said Ivory, i ordered Ivory, the packing slip said Ivory, but the actual package was labeled Banana, with yellow sand. someone must have grabbed the wrong one. sad.gif im sure they'll replace it, they have a good rep.

Those are gorgeous colors!! I also got my sand from there also and they were really quick. I got 2 colors from them, the DB coral and the natural. Love your containers.

Sand Ceremony

Minister - TREVOR:

There are two children who will share in this marriage. Trevor and

Alixzandra

will now come forward to help us with the Blending of the Sands. The

joining of

this new family will have a deep influence upon them. We realize that

in order

for the home to be a happy one, it is essential that there be love and

understanding between the children and the adults being married.

For Trevor and Ali the celebration can be more than just witnessing.

This is an

opportunity for them to bring themselves into the new family and in a

symbolic

sense to give themselves to this new venture of the marriage of their

father.

Abbie and Doug, today you are making a life-long commitment to share

the rest

of your lives with each other and honor Dougâ€s children as well. Your

family

relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these individual

containers

of sand.

One representing you, Abbie, and all that you were, all that you are,

and all

that you will ever be, one representing you, Doug, and all that you

were and

all that you are, and all that you will ever be and another container

for each

child.

 

As you each hold your sand, the separate containers of sand represent

your

lives to this moment; individual and unique. As you now combine your

sand

together, your lives also join together as one family. You may now

blend the

sand together symbolizing the uniting of the children and bride and

groom into

one.

Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again

into the

individual containers, so will be your marriage and your family.
