      Thanks for these.  I was not even considering a sand ceremony as I didnt beleive it was "us" but now that I have read some of your suggested readings I have changed my mind.  Off to show FI some of the options and sell him on the idea! :)

          As you stand beside the ocean, may your love always be as constant as the tide; waves flowing endlessly from the depths of the sea. Just as water is the eternal force of life, so is love. Love is the force that allows us to face fear and uncertainty with courage.
          You have just sealed your relationship by giving and receiving of rings. But although you will be sharing one life, never forget that you are two separate people. Cherish and affirm your differences. Love each other. Keep your commitment primary. Together you will laugh and cry, be sick and well, be happy and angry, share and grow. Grow sometimes together, sometimes separately.
          To symbolize this union and the importance of the individuals within the marriage, two separate colors of sand will be combined. Each one holds its own unique beauty, strength, and character. They can stand on their own and be whole, without need of anything else. However when these two are blended together they create and entirely new and extraordinarily more intricate entity.
          Each grain of sand brings to the mixture a lasting beauty that forever enriches the combination. Please pour the sand into this common container to symbolize the union of your two lives.

          Kathleen and Pawel, just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual container, so will your marriage be a molding of two individual personalities, bonded together forming one heart, one life, and one family.

          Ooo nice one!

              The idea of a sand ceremony is something I truly want to do and some of these readings are amazing.  I love writing so I'm going to see if I can come up with a beautiful reading.  These are awesome ladies.

                I had such mixed feelings about doing a sand ceremony until reading these beautiful ceremonies...Now I think I'm definitely having one!!

                  Ladies- does anyone have the full set of vows to share from start to finish? how do you incorporate the sand ceremony into the more traditional readings...how do they announce you husband and wife etc?
