i didn't realize there were different sizes to the UMBRA ETHER sand ceremony frame!

Recommended Posts

sooo i was all excited when i finally found and purchased my UMBRA ETHER frame for the sand ceremony, but then when I went to search how to make the sand ceremony and how much sand I am to put....I realized that not all UMBRA ETHER frames are the same! (silly me)


the ones that i have seen on BDW forums were 10.5 x 8 and 8 x 9.5 but the one i got (purchased online @ urbane.ca) is 10.5 x 13!! that is QUITE a bit bigger! oops.gif I will test it out once it comes in to see how much sand etc... but just wanted to give you ladies a heads up that if you are planning to purchase the ETHER frame to confirm the size of frame!


BTW - I got the frame in 'metal' , i've seen most ETHER frames turned into sand ceremony frames with the espresso wood finish so I hope my turns out!

I received my frame and it looks like the normal size for the frame. I guess some websites just advertised the sizes wrong. Anyhoo...I did glue panels 2 and 4 (all 3 sides to the frame) with Florabond glue and waited 24 hours before testing out the sand frame. The sand didn't leak or seep through - i used 2 - 500gram sand containers (bought at the dollarama store) to test it and found i still needed just a little extra at the top.


p.s. i used tons of florabond because i didn't want sand to seep or leak through and i ended up getting some on the glass panel. i tried to wipe it with a damp cloth and then tried to scrape it with a blade and it didnt work so then i decided to be creative and made a 'glue' edge border on the glass panel...when it dried it looked not bad! i just didn't want to ruin the ether frame since with shipping it cost me $40 (@urbane.ca) and i hear it's hard to find now.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
