Sand Ceremony?

Recommended Posts

I love the idea of the Sand Ceremony with different colours of sand. However I would want to keep it as a keep sake and I was wondering how you would bring it home with you without it getting ruined (all shaken up)? Any suggestions, or has anyone done this?

My set has a stopper, but I am going to put paper on top of the sand to hold it in place. But I am still going to hand carry it on the plane.

I would recommend either carrying it in yor hand OR after the ceremony, let it settle and then pour more sand to really top it off before packing it with a stopper. Ours ot messed up due to the settling and movement while in transit back to the States.

I'm a little confused- how does it get messed up? I thought that when we pour in the sand it gets mixed up together regardless & this is the beauty of it- that they become together as one- "...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."

My daughter is having the "sand ceremoney" but just is using smaller type vases that won't require that much sand...she figures if the sands gets mixed up and don't look that great, they can always do a "do-over" when they get home with some fresh sand & then just use the new one to put on the mantle or in a hutch as a remembrance.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
