Is everyone doing a Sand Ceremony??

Recommended Posts

I apologize if this is a repeat...

 

SO FI and I weren't planning on doing a sand ceremony but after being on this forum for a while I see that almost everyone is having one. Is it pretty common?

 

I know that it takes place of the unity candle part in more traditional ceremonies (which we werent really planning on either) but Id like to get more information on the significance of the sand ceremony and where it comes from

 

Any information is helpful!

 

Thanks!!

We were originally going to do it to include his daughter, but everyone I spoke with said don't as the day is about us and the unity of us and she is already involved with the wedding. They reminded me that we are going to have our children together and this marriage and the vows are to each other and our family (which includes her and future children). The people I know who did one, ended up throwing the sand away. So, the more I thought about it...we opted not to. It sure looks pretty in pictures though

We haven't completely decided yet.. but honestly, I am leaning towards not doing it. It's a beautiful gesture and looks amazing; as well as gives you a nice keepsake. I just don't want to have to buy anything else or plan anything else. I know it sounds awful; but I am maxed out financially and planning wise. LOL.

i'm planning on doing it only because i am having a legal ceremony, so it's the only part of the ceremony i can change or personalize, ya know?

Hmm these are all good points. I thought it would be cool to have a keepsake but the more I think about it I doubt we will keep the sand- and it is ANOTHER thing to buy and think about haha. I guess if we do it it will be last minute

 

Thanks ladies!

This is going to sound really terrible, but to me, a sand ceremony is nothing more than pouring sand. I like the idea, but for some reason it just doesn't touch me in any sort of emotional way. I wish that it evoked some sort of emotional response in me because I think it's it's a fantastic concept and makes for a nice keepsake, but it doesn't do anything for me, so I'm skipping it!

 

When it comes to my wedding, I try to make a lot of my decisions based on what I feel emotionally (such as wedding songs). If the thought of a sand ceremony makes you all warm and fuzzy inside, I say go for it, but if you could care less it's probably not worth the expense.

    • This coming November, I will be marrying the woman I don't truly deserve but I was so blessed that God gave me her. Half of my life, I have been a douchebag. I have played with different women’s hearts. I thought I would never be able to meet someone who will love me wholeheartedly, until this woman came. I don’t deserve to be cared and loved by such an angel. No matter how bastard I was, she still accepted me for who I am. Loving me sincerely is what she has done since the first day. Because of that, I know deep within that she deserves someone better, but she chose to stay and love me. And I was beyond grateful for that.

    • Nicole, did you decide which resort yet?  We are guessing anywhere from 25-40 people.  Shamil! Welcome and congrats!  We booked the twilight ceremony as well. How many people will you have? Who is your planner?  We still havent spoken to ours but finally locked down a date on the 29th of this month. Dying over here.  What locations have you looked at so far?
