    I just received my frame today. It is a very nice frame. I am going to work on it this weekend and will let everyone know how it turns out!

      Hey Ladies...mine just arrived in the mail from Urbane in Saskatchewan and it looks great! I'm excited to attempt the DIY to convert it into the Sand Ceremony frame! I'm thinking that I'll bring it in my carry on, especially on the way back!

        Ok ladies, so I got my frame and I love it. But what are you guys going to use to pour your sand into the frame? I love the heart shaped vases that come with the sand ceremony kits, anyone know where to find these vases individually? I found the "small" vases that you can order as extras, but I think these are too small?!?!? What do you guys plan to use? Thanks!

          I am planning on looking at Michael's or Joann's and see if they have small vases there. Ordering them online seems too expensive. But I'd also love to know what other ppl are using!

            We just bought 2 glass jars (the ones with the cork bottle stops) at Michaels. Of course, we forgot our funnel, so we had to make one out of paper 5 mins before the ceremony but oh well.

            Ladies, be prepared to have to pour the sand out when you get home and re-do. Bring some sand home with you if you are using beach sand (we used some from Jamaica). We were careful and carried ours on, but just a little shifting and it got all messed up.

              I wonder if the dollar stores would have any nice small vases?

                      Do a test run using regular sand. Or use your own sand, and pour it back into a re-sealable container.

                      I only want to do this once - can anyone suggest how to get it home in one piece?? Would using a sealant like epoxy or something work, maybe?? Or is it best just to fill it to the brim and let the sand settle??

                      I figured we'd pour a layer of beach sand in the bottom at the start of our ceremony, then pouring our two colours in layers, then letting it settle for a couple days before pouring more sand in the top before we go to even it out and pack it as full as possible...
