I got a beautiful sand ceremony set from Etsy. Etched Glass with tops for the center vase and each side pouring vase. I got 3 side vases with my daughters name on one, and Mr & Mrs on the other 2. The center vase I got personalized with our names, wedding date, a large initial and a short saying. I will try to take a picture later and post it. I bought the sand from Michael's Crafts. I wanted to make sure I had the exact colors I wanted.
This is the script that I am going to use:
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 tht allows us to face fear and uncertainty with courage. Love is the force that completes us.
Michelle & George, today you join your lives together. These bottles of sand, of various colors, symbolize your individual spirits of you and that of Michelle's daughter Nicole. Each container is unique, representing who you are. As these containers of sand are poured into this larger container, the different colors will join together to form something quite beautiful. You are joined together today, not only in marriage, but as a family.
Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will be the bond with your family.
This symbol is a keepsake of your wedding day and reminds you that from this moment on, you are one familhy, anchored in love.
I think they are going to charge a "set up" fee for me bringing my own set. Roxi said it was to set up a table for the sand ceremony. She quoted me $50.

I saw a thread about the scripts. When I talk to Roxy, will she be able to provide the scripts. I would like one that is more family oriented since I am including my 8 year old son. This is one of the reason we chose Beaches. We want him to be a big part of the wedding.
