    Hi all,

    Past brides, how did you transport the sand ceremony glasses once you filled them up after the ceremony. Stupid question, but did the sand stay?

    Thanks,
    Shannon

        I was wondering this myself. I know some of the containers have lids but not all of them...

          No, our sand did not stay in place.

          I think if you really really want a sand ceremony, then you should do it, and just bring the mixed up sand jar back like we did. But if you can forgo it, then that might be a good idea. We got a glass sand ceremony kit - this one from Beau Coup Personalized Heart Shaped Unity Sand Ceremony Set. It's pretty, but it has a glass jar, and 3 glass vases for the sand. It added to our luggage because we had to keep it packaged in its box with the styrofoam. We did the sand ceremony and the wedding coordinator sent the items back to our room later. Even with tissue stuffed into the top of the jar to hold the sand in place, it moved around and got all mixed up because we packed it with our checked baggage. Maybe if you took it as a carry on it would fare better. Hope that helps!

              Hmmm...I had not thought about this, but it makes total sense. This might make me rethink having a sand ceremony.

                We're planning on brining ours back in as a carryon.  Will let you know how this goes.

                  Ladies...our sand was not going to make it, as we had other things to put in our carry-ons.  So we bagged it separately, wrapped the glass and packed it up.  When we got home we re-created it for display...shhhh, our little secret.  =)

                    I figured it wold get all mixed up, so I've already decided to get extra sand and we'd redo it when we got home!
