    I love the idea of the and ceremony, but I am wanting to personalize it a little bit.

    My Fiance is from Holland and I am from Canada. I want his folks to bring Sand with them from a Dutch Beach and I will bring Sand from a Canada beach (specifically Long Beach BC which I love) and then we will combine it in a vase with sand from the beach were we get married

    I love this idea, but I'm worried that there may be legal issues with removing sand from the beaches, and bringing it over the border. I am marrying in St Martins.

    Am I just being paranoid?

              I don't think it's an issue with customs at all. Brides bring sand ceremonies back all the time. I think the real issue is food and flowers.

              I love the idea of what you want to do. I'm hoping we can pour some of the pink Bermuda sand in the bottom of ours also.

                You could also check first but bring your own sand there along with your vases.

                    I love this idea! At first one thinks it's just ordinary sand, but then they find out it's from two countries!
