          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 Doug’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.
          Abbie,

          This is so beautifuly worded. Where did you find it? I have been looking for something to do for our AHR b/c I wanted to include his neice and nephew in some way. Maybe the kids can pour 2 colors and we can pour 2 colors. Any information would be great.

          Thanks,

          Heather

            the container with the candle, im burning the candle down most of the way, then we'll pour the sand on top. it has a sealing lid, to keep the sand in nice and tight.

            i just googled sand ceremony then picked the one i liked the best and tweaked it to fit. i think you could probably tweak this one to fit with the neice and nephew, somehow. just change up the wording to make it say having them celebrate with their uncle and new auntie!

                CUTE colors! (now that I can see them) lol! Can you explain a little more about the candle? Are you just using it for the container purposes? I'm confused.

                hehe :)
                ok so i found the candle at target and i loved the shape, plus because it has a sealing type of lid, i thought it would be perfect. so i'm burning it down as much as i can before the wedding, but leaving an inch or 2 of candle in the bottom for 2 reasons, 1)the color matches perfectly, and 2), 4 lbs of sand wont quite fill the jar so im leaving a little wax to make the sand need less room, does that make more sense?? sorry

                  Thanks Abbie,
                  I think it is a great idea.
