    My FI has 2 kids too and that would work great!

    I'd like to hear more about the photo/sand idea too! You can actually pour sand into the photo frame? Sounds cool, but possibly a little tricky.

        Ok, so now I'm thinking about doing a sand ceremony. Since all of us girls are having a DW, how do to transport the sand back to the states?

            That is so cute but how did she get the sand to stay all over and not all fall to the bottom??

                I'm sure it's probaly a dumb question. Does she use 2 color sands? blue and white? I thought it was just all white sand with a blue background and wasn't sure how she got the white sand all over without falling?? Do you understand what i'm saying.... sorry!

                  oh right -- yes, each person uses one color and the two "blend" when emptied into the container. My friends did a sand ceremony last weekend and used blue & green. Very pretty!

                      Matt & I will incorporate the "blending of the sands" into our wedding. There are a couple websites out there to buy kits from but they are expensive and don't look all that great. I bought a really cute small vase and will use that and then order the sand or Michael's carries colored sand.

                      "Blending of the Sands" is what I will use instead of unity candle (since we are not getting married in a church as my dad would have liked). So therefore we are including our parents in the blending. We will have 6 different colors of sand and since Matt's parents are divorced....we will have the mom's go up with their sand, then the dad's, then us. We thought this would be a great way to blend our families. His mom is so excited to be included in the ceremony!!!


                      We will use something similar to this......


                      Blending the Sands Ceremony #3 - Bride, Groom and Parents
                      Minister: _________ and _________, today you are making a life-long commitment to share the rest of your lives with each other. Your relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these individual containers of sand; one, representing you, _________ and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be, and the other representing you, _________, and all that you were and all that you are, and all that you will ever be.
                      As you each hold your sand the separate containers of sand represent your lives to this moment; individual and unique. As you now combine your sand together, your lives also join together as one family.
                      At this time, I would invite the parents of _________ and _________ to come forward. These four vials of sand represent the bride and groom and each family.
                      You may now blend the sand together symbolizing the uniting of the two families into one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage and your families be.
