Holding a Wedding Sand Ceremony.
Wedding unity sand ceremony is a form of marriage ceremony which is used to create unity among new couples by use of sand. The wedding unity sand ceremony is more popular than the traditional ceremony which used tapered candles and light. Light provided by a lit candle has been used to signify the start of a new life of marriage and unity in the traditional marriages which used light as the unifying factor. Unity sand involves the reciting of their unity which is the same as the lighting of the candle. However, they differ in the replacement of the sand with the candle. Availability and reliability of sand makes it popular to be used in the unity sand ceremony as it does not face the challenges that are faced by the lit candle during the marriage ceremony. During the marriage ceremony, the lit candle can be blown off by wind hence disrupting the proceedings of the occasion. Wind can disrupt the lit candle especially if the marriage ceremony is held in an open place. The sand is poured by the bride and groom to symbolized their unity and love.

There is a large glass vase which contains two small style tubes. At the start of the ceremony, the two style glass vases are filled by the bride’s and groom’s mothers. They then set down the large glass vase. Two of the colored sand are the d?cor of the wedding with the remaining one being white to represent the unity and peace of the ceremony. The mandate to fill the main glass vase with the white sand rests with the officiant of the ceremony. The white sand is poured to signify the start of a new relationship.
The groom starts the process of pouring the colored sand into the main glass. The bride follows the procedure of pouring the colored sand into the same main vase. The couples will pour this colored san at several intervals leading to the creation of sand layers. The layers are balanced when they pour simultaneously as they get closer. Pouring the remaining sand into the vase simultaneously signifies the end of the wedding occasion. The blending of the two colored sands symbolizes the joining of the bride and the groom unity which should be preserved as it is a covenant between the two. The main glass vase is covered at the top using the stopper bought with the set. The officiant blesses the ceremony by use of a customized verse.
