Sand Wax Unity Candle?

Recommended Posts

I really love the idea of a unity candle but with a beach wedding all my research seems to shout that it's a big no-no, even with hurricane jars which was my original idea.  :( And I'm not a big fan of sand pouring ceremonies (sorry, I get where it comes from but it just isn't really me, maybe because I've never seen it in real life)


So, I've been looking around and came across the idea of using sand wax, or wax crystals or wax granules. You pour them into a jar like you would for the sand ceremony, then add a wick and light your candle. I like that it still incorporates the flame (with all the implications of being each other's light in the dark and all that cheese-tastic stuff!) whilst being a bit more resistant to the wind as it'll only be lit for a few minutes. 


Has anyone any experience of this? And does anyone know where I can get the sand crystals in the UK? I'm going to check my local art shops at the weekend, but it doesn't look that common.

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do either especially the idea of sand shifting and such. I ended up doing a Unity Glass - www.unityinglass.com


It's much more expensive than the sand, but I just received my sculpture and it is FANTASTIC! If you end up doing this I can send you the wording we used in our ceremony.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
