I was planning on having the same amount of color (white sand at the bottom + 4 other colors) and then once we come back home, I would just put all the same in a Ziplock bag. yes, the sand won't be place back the same way but I don't think that I will have the vase as a decoration in my house...I will probably just leave it by the caddles on top of the bath. For me, the most important thing will be the actual sand ceremony with my girls + pictures of all of us doing it... not keeping the sand the exact way it is during the ceremony.

Here's what I did:
-The day after the wedding, we got extra beach sand and filled the vessel almost to the top (within about 3 inches)
-Then, I packed paper towel in until it reached the top. I mean packed HARD!
-I bought saran wrap at the Mega store in Cabo (or you could bring it with you) and put about 5 layers of it over the top, extending down the sides and taped around the sides with packing tape. I put a rubber band around the neck to hold it tight.
-I carried it on as my carryon on the way home. I did lie and say that all the sand came from the US, because they were trying to tell me that if it was Cabo sand I couldn't bring it home! They ran some tests on it when we went through security, but in the end let me pass.

Anyway, we got the center vessel at TJ Maxx- they actually had several vases, pitches, carafes etc that would have worked- we liked this one best. Then we got the small vessels at Target. They are actually candle holders.
