I like the idea of both, but not being able to seal the phot frame could definitely sway me towards the engraved one. Please let me know which one you got and if it has a "lid". Thanks!

I got the Etsy frame with the picture. Unity Sand Ceremony Frame by SayAnythingDesign on Etsy It does have a way to seal the sand after the ceremony and you can still switch out the picture when you get home.

Thanks!! Best wishes with your upcoming wedding! (mine is still too far out to even book a date, but I have already become addicted to this forum and can't help myself when I come across great ideas like these)

you can change the pic b/c you don't glue the first glass pane. so when you get home, you just remove the first one, which gives you access to the pic (placed on the second pane, not behind it). i will say that if i hadn't gotten the umbra frame, I probably would have spent the extra money on the esty one. FI won't let me now, lol!!!

and i will also say that i am 99% sure that i'm just going to use the sand ceremony set that Dreams Cancun lets you borrow when we get married and just fill the actuall frame when we get home...i'm scared that the sand will shift on our way back and we'll have to re-do it anyway; so why take it there to begin with, kwim?

Well, i just purchased this sand ceremony unity frame thanks to you girls, fingers crossed it arrives in time as i purchased this with 2 weeks to go before we leave :)

 

Now, does anyone have any suggestions on any verbiage for the sand ceremony that you could share?

Here's one, hope it helps

Sand Ceremony

Alphonso and Lauren,

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 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. 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 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 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.

(PAUSE, for the pouring of the sand. Read the following passage as Alphonso and Lauren)

Alphonso and Lauren,

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.
