    So I ended up buying a frame for the sand ceremony. It is HUGE, a lot bigger than I thought it was.

    It measures 5 inches tall, 3 inches deep, and 8 inches wide. We are thinking that is a TON of sand. Here is pictures of it so you can get an idea...

    We had it engraved so of course still want to use it, but dont want the sand to be to overbearing. How much sand do you think will fit in there?

    Any suggestions on a cover to?

        I got it from here....

        Wedding Reception Glass Photo Vase | Marilyn's Keepsakes

        Its a really nice frame, and they engraved it and shipped it the day after I ordered it. Ordered it 10/7/09 and got it today, 10/12/09.

        It says right on the website those big dimensions. Maybe I should of paid better attention.

            Thats a good idea. I was going to order sand, and Im like hmmmmm how much is a pound of sand.

            I could go to the dollar store and probably find some sand.....

              Use playground sand and just see how much fits confortably... that would work

                  I just wanted to let everyone know this interesting tidbit I got from Moon Glow (sand company). I called them to inquire about how much sand, and she said fill up your vase or frame with water. Every 1.5 cups of water = 1lb of sand :)

                  We just ordered our sand which we wont use till the wedding. So I can let you know in about 25 days (EEK!) how accurate that is :)

                      hey there ladies..
                      Im in the midst of looking for sand ceremony sets as well. I really want one that has a lid or a cork...I have several of the personalized heart ones but still unsure. I did like this idea that I had seen a few months ago that was an hourglass...That was pretty unique but a little out of our budget...Well getting back to the topic of the thread...Has anyone ever thought about possibly getting sand from the wedding location? I want to do that but I have yet to do research on actually 'coloring ' the sand...any ideas?
