That's a great idea!

    We were planning to use real sand from the beach. Are you not allowed to do this?

      I don't see why you wouldn't be able to take sand from the beach. Who's gonna stop you? The resort beach police? Should be fine, and that's what I was planning to do when I was thinking we'd have one!

        We mixed sand from the beach with coloured sand. The resort won't care but tell Customs that it is fake sand or they may take it. Also it helps to bring a small funnel to filter and pour the beach sand into the bottles.

As these containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be."

          I love the wording in your ceremony...will definitely borrow :)

              My husband made this for our sand ceremony.  We included my three children, so we all had our own sand containers.

                Don't mind the paper funnel.  We totally forgot to bring one.

                  Including children in the sand ceremony is an awesome idea, children today feel left out in new relationships. I need to do this for my 19 year old, LOL.

                  Your husband did a wonderful job on the box as well, congrats to you both!!
