    Hi All!

    Our wedding is one week today (nothing like leaving it to the last minute, huh?)

    I am trying to determine where the sand ceremony fits in... we are including my guy's son in the sand ceremony (if that makes any difference)...

    The ceremony I have has us doing the vows, then there is a reading then the rings. The officiant speaks some more then announces us husband and wife.

    Does the sand ceremony occur after the exchange of rings?

    Thanks a bunch!!

    Jenn

          We're planning on doing the ceremony between readings and before the vows and rings (but we're doing a legal ceremony too). Sounds like you can do it whenever you want!

            When do YOU want to do it!?!?! If it makes you happy, you can do it when it feels right to you.
            Personally, I think your day should be geared around your needs and wants. If it makes it special for you, then do it!

              We actually did our sand ceremony at the reception. It was a beach reception, so it was fitting and we did it just before we cut the cake.

                foxytv- was your ceremony a legal one? I am being told that we can only do the sand ceremony after we are married by my WC. She said the legal ceremonies can't be changed but the symbolic ones can be.
                I just want to get your opinion if it's worth adding this at the end. I think it's a very symbolic part of the ceremony and I want to do it- but only if it flows right and doesn't look funky! Thoughts? Thanks a million :)

                  I believe we are doing ours after the exchange of rings... It's totally up to you and future hubby though!

                    hmmm i should find out about this ... my WC said we could add a sand ceremony to the legal ceremony, but she didn't mention *when* i could do it. might seem weird if it's after we're already husband and wife, ya know?

                      Our ceremony was a symbolic (did the legal-ese before we left for our DW). The sand ceremony wasn't part of our ceremony at all. We did a Hand Ceremony as part of the actual ceremony, though, which was read by my uncle. Didn't want too much during the ceremony, so that's why we saved the sand ceremony for the reception. We think it was perfect just before the cake cutting. Worked for us (and we didn't do a reading with it - just poured the sand while people were gathering for the cake cutting).
