unity sand ceremony

Recommended Posts

Has anyone or will anyone using unity sand instead of unity candles at their ceremony? Pictures? Wording? Where did you get your unity sand set?

 

I have looked all over the place online and keep finding the same sets over and over. I'm not finding anything that is to my liking.

Not sure if you've seen this yet, but I found this website that has a few examples on the wording.

Sand Ceremony

Also, some people are using picture frames or shadowboxes instead of the vases. Let me know if you want that link.

My daughter is planning a sand ceremony instead of the unity candle. We were afraid with the wind, the candle idea would not work. Would love to hear some of your ideas on your sand ceremony's. This is such a talented and creative group, I am sure you have wonderful ideas!

We did the sand ceremony at our wedding after the normal vows but before signing the register. I found some wording on the internet and gave to the WC but she never passed this on to the minister and he used his own - which was quite similar anyway.

 

We bought from a company in England that is owned by a US company - weddingstar I think. It came with 2 large vases and also a smaller one (which had the sand fromthe beach in - and which the parents poured as the foundation sand). We had it engraved with our monogram and wedding date. We took in hand luggage but packed it in bubble wrap. The only problem we had in transport was on the way out of Jamaica. I think they thought it was drugs so the made us open the case. But they soon sent us on our way when they found out it was sand!!

Hello ladies:

Just wondering if any of you has seen or has actually done a shadow box picture frame for a sand ceremony? I'm looking to purchase one that is inexpensive if anyone has a suggestion. I keep on finding one that is linked to THE KNOTT, but would like to see other options.

Thank you!!

    • 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?
