Sand Ceremony

Recommended Posts

I love the vase! On our site visit we brought back some sand, and I didnt realize until afterwards that you aren't supposed to bring back soil. We just but it in an empty Gatorade bottle and closed it up.

So, I just purchased my sand ceremony stuff this weekend. I took pictures last night so I will post soon, but I thought i'd tell you about it first.

I got it at Hobby Lobby for $12 (well, $23.99 but I bought it half off). It's a picture frame that has three panes which are meant to be used to get a shadow effect. Instead, I will use the first pane area to pour the sand into. I will then attach a photo from the wedding to the third pane and I'll end up with a beautiful shadow frame with our sand ceremony in the back! I'm really excited about it!

After watching Angela's 10.5 minute slideshow... I think she had the same photo frame!

I will post my photos ASAP.

one thing you might want to try if you dont want it to shift is to put a plastic back inside the glass container and fill the plastic bag up with other sand and then tie off the bag then put that entire thing inside a bigger bag. that should keep the other sand from shifting around. i believe i saw McGuyver do that on his wedding special hahah. it should work well though. im worried taht the wax seal would break and you would be left with sand everywhere if you did that.

I recently went to a wedding where they played the ENTIRE song during the unity candle ceremony. I like the idea of playing the song, but not the whole song. Everybody started to look around and looked confused. Just a part of it would be really nice, I think.

ya ... last thing you want is awkwardness during your ceremony. why not just have them fade the song out after a little while so you dont stand there for 2 minutes staring and waiting for the song to end. PLUS im sure people are ready to get out of the sun in their nice clothes and get to the reception by that point anyways wink.gif (and ps thanks for the compliments and ive been to enough weddings to where i usually have some good pointers on this and that )

    • 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.
