What is the sand ceremony

Recommended Posts

Hi, I had never heard of the sand ceremony before going on this site. I have read alot of brides are having it but i'm not sure what it is. Could some one let me know what it and what's involved.

the sand ceremony is like a newer version of the unity candle idea.

 

if you use the search function in the top right corner you will come up with a ton of information.

Anyone can read it. The only part a judge/minister has to read it the vows portion and pronouncing you man and wife. Carla wink.gif

we did a sand ceremony. this is what our said

 

Unity Sand

 

Tara and Joe today you join your separate lives together.

 

The two separate cups of sand in front of us symbolize your separate lives, separate families and separate sets of friends. They represent all that you are and all that you’ll ever be as an individual. They also represent your lives before today. As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be.

 

then he asked us to pour our sand together. we used sand from our ceremony location becuase we wanted to have sand from where we got married

I absolutely love that...definately want to incorporate that into our wedding. I like the fact of using sand from your resort location - great idea. My only concern is how do you transport glass containershuh.gif

Cheers,

Cheers,
We carried on our sand ceremony vases, wrapped them in bubble wrap once and didn't have a problem with them. We left the vases at Las Caletas as they weren't worth bringing back - we didn't get expensive ones, just from Michaels.

As for the sand, our wedding coordinator tranfered it into an empty water bottle for us to take back with us. Now we're trying to find something nice to put the sand in. We do have the sand water bottle displayed though! Every time I look at it I think of our wedding. I think it's pretty cool

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
