    Hi Everyone!

    My wedding is just over two weeks away, I am sooo excited! :)) I found a sand ceremony reading online, and added to/changed it a bit - what do you all think? Here it is:

    Angela and Jason,

    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. Love is the force that completes us.

    You have just sealed your marriage by the 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, with every fiber of your being. Keep your commitment primary, and nourish it, above all else.

    Together you will laugh and cry, be sick and well, be happy and angry, share and grow. In your lives together, you will no doubt be faced with many challenges, but also many joys. Embrace all of these together, as partners, as one.


    To symbolize this union, 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 the need of anything else. However, when these two are blended together, they create an 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.

    [Angela and Jason pour the sand into the centre vase]

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

        I LIKE it!!! I think certain words... like fiber.... should be left out of wedding speak, but other than that i think it's beautiful :)
