    So, FI and I had been talking about the Sand Ceremony for awhile and he (surprisingly) agreed to it right away. We'd been looking online at sets and really just hadn't "fallen in love" with any of them ...

    So, because our wedding is in like, 3 weeks, we were running out of time to order a set online! So, last night we hit the town to try and find something we could use at a local store. First stop was Pier 1 Imports ... and wow were we ever lucky!

    We found the perfect "set" of 3 glass vases (and I tried to find them online, but they don't have the pics so I'll post pics when I get home tonight). And while they are plan, I hit up our local art store right away and found some great organza ribbon, a few beads, a Swarovski heart and some fishing wire and I'll be DIYing these vases into a beautiful Sand Ceremony kit! And we got teal and white sand to mix together and we're going to top it off with sand from the beach where we are.

    Oh and the three vases cost us $55 CDN .... quite a good deal if you ask me!!

    I promise pics tonight ladies!

          That sounds great. It's always nice to find things that you can piece together on your own instead of getting a plain kit that doesn't always suit your personality. Looking forward to the pictures.

                      I don't know why I can't edit the first post ... but here are the pics!

                      So, I don't have a glue gun (yet) so I just taped the ribbons on to show you girls what I want to do ... and the middle one, I'm a bit unsure of how to combine the two colored ribbons ... any suggestions would be welcomed!! You girls are DIY queens so I trust your suggestions!!

                      Oh and sorry about the quality of the images ... I can never make my camera work at night ...

                      And here's my question for you girls. Should I DIY our initials (just first names) on our respective sand vases with these diamond sticky thingies??
