Sand vase ceremony at weddings

Sand vases to symbolize unity

New and unique unity symbol

The wedding sand ceremony is a new alternative to the unity candle ceremony and is very practical for outdoor weddings.

Two vases are filled with contrasting colors of sand, and the center vase remains empty. During the ceremony, the bride and groom alternately pour their colored sand into the center vase, symbolizing their marriage.

Other elements, such as crushed glass, could be used in the vases. After the ceremony, the two empty vases can be used to display fresh flowers.

There are a variety of vase shapes available and they can also be engraved.
