    After purchasing the Umbra frame, my fiance convinced me to keep it at home and we'll do it when we get back.  Off I was to find vases... I didn't want to spend more money, so I figured I would borrow the resort's set.  Yup, rental fee is $50.  Because of this, I starting searching the internet and came across this great seller on etsy.com, EtchArt.


    Below is a picture of the set I purchased.  Love that it came with stoppers for travel down and back.  Best part!  Engraving is free and they even let you engrave a phrase along with your names and date!  I had him engrave the first part of our wedding invitiations, "Love makes life a paradise..."  I love how they turned out!  I jazzed mine up a bit by tying the neck of the large bottle with rafia and added an open heart charm with a palm tree charm over it.

                I love the shape of the bottles as well as the cork idea. It gives an ancient theme.

                  We traveled down with the sand in the individual bottles in our carry-ons (in ziploc bags).  No leakage.  Came back in his parents' carry-on, no leakage. I know some are worried about the sand shifting... well we were pouring at the same time and just kind of made our own color of sand, so we didn't have to worry about shifting since we didn't have layers.


                  Stoppers did their job!  Bottles are fragile, so be careful packing!  Love the etching, though unless you use dark color sand (which we didn't), it will be hard to see.


                  Definitely recommend!

                    Does anyone know if you can buy the stoppers seperately?


                    FI and I have bought a sand ceremony kit from Michaels but no stoppers to keep the sand from leaking afterwards.  Any ideas?
