      Yup...you can change the picture by removing pane #1 and then you can access the picture which is attached to the front of pane 2. From the directions it seems pretty easy...just glue panes 2 and 3 so that they won't jostle and come loss. Then you can still remove the front pane to change the picture. From other girls, I've read that covering the front and back sections is important when pouring the sand in the frame so that you don't have a mess. One bride said she only used half a bag for each colour. That's pretty great because then you can do a trial at home first!

      Here are a few different Sand Ceremony Readings that I've found...I think I'm leaning towards the 2nd one...what do you all think?

      Sand Ceremony #1

      "Before the two of you met, your lives were on separate roads ... each going in different directions and seemingly leading to different destinations. But somewhere along the way (through some twist of fate) you did meet, and you fell in love. Today, you find yourselves standing here together at the threshold of a new path, and have promised to forever join your once separate journeys into one.

      Before each of you there is a container of sand. Each container represents the separate journeys you once were on. They also represent your own sets of friends and families, that until today were apart from each other. I now ask that you blend these individual containers of sand together.

      As the sand has blended together, your lives too are joined. Your once solitary journeys have become one of companionship, as you now set forth on a single path together into your future. Your friends and family are as one as well. You will now share those who are a part of your lives as you walk hand-in-hand

      Sand Ceremony #2

      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.

      You have just sealed your relationship by 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. Keep your commitment primary. Together you will laugh and cry, be sick and well, be happy and angry, share and grow. Grow sometimes together, sometimes separately.

      To symbolize this union and the importance of the individuals within the marriage, two separate colours 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 need of anything else. However when these two are blended together they create and 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.
      (Begin pouring sand)

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

      Sand Ceremony #3

      Now we shall celebrate this union as it is symbolized through the pouring of two individual containers of sand. One represents (Bride/Groom) and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be. The other represents (Groom/Bride) and all that you were and all that you are, and all that you will ever be. As the two vials of sand are poured into the third keepsake vase, the individual containers of sand ceased exist as they are now joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual vases, so will the love and bond between the two of you render you inseparable.

      Sand Ceremony #4

      Before you met, your lives were on different paths with different destinations. Love has brought you together and joined these separate paths into one.
      The sand in these jars symbolize your separate lives, separate families, separate sets of friends, and the different life journeys you once traveled. I ask that each of you take one of the jars and that you fill the center jar together.

      ~The couple steps forward and takes their individual jars and fills the center jar.~

      With the mixing of these grains of sand you have now symbolically joined your once separate lives. As your two lives have been inseparably combined, so now are your friends and family joined, through you into one. And your once solitary life’s paths are also now one. All that was once separate is now shared and in this sharing you both will find great comfort.

          Ok girls I hope this can help you a little bit. So I glued the glass panels into my frame. I took out the 4th panel and glued panel 3 there instead. That gave me more room for sand and now you will be able to see the sand from the back as well without the frosted panel. I personally liked the look of this much more. Also I don't have to worry about trying to get the sand into such a tiny slot or it pouring into any of the other slots.

          To clarify panel 1 can slide in and out and I can attach/change the picture that is stuck to the outside of panel 2. Panel 2 is glued in slot 2. Skipped a panel for slot 3. Glued panel 3 into the 4th/outside slot. (hope that makes sense)

          I bought the 28oz(780g) bag of sand from Michaels. With that extra panel taken out that 1 bag filled it almost to the top. I'd say there was maybe an inch clearance from the top. So I'll buy my black sand and I'll have more than enough with the 2 bags. I'd say I probably will use 2/3 of each bag since I'm doing 2 colours. If you will be gluing the panels as they come then 1 bag would be more than enough for the frame. Hope this helps!
          Two lives, two hearts joined together in friendship united forever in love

              Question do you pour the sand into together?

              I see pictures of it looking very zigg zaggy. But I am thinking if you pour two different colors into the one slot isnt it just going to mix the two colors all over

                  Thanks! This is REALLY helpful. I am not sure if my "minister" for the sand ceremony will have someone of his/her own but I might just have to tell them I want something different.

                      Sorry for the delay. I used Weld bond glue from Michaels. They had a few different ones there that would have worked but another bride had suggested this glue. The glue can get kinda messy since you are trying to squirt it into a very small slot so have something handy to wipe off the glass. If you do buy your glue from Michaels don't forget your coupon. I think the glue ended up costing me only a few bucks that way. Good luck!
