Unity Sand Wedding Ceremony
A Sand Ceremony or Blending of the Sand symbolizes two lives becoming one in a wedding ceremony. Each person has different colored sand and takes turns pouring it into one clear vase or vessel. This will form a layered colorful sand. Depending upon the bride and groom's wishes, sometimes just the couple participates, and sometimes the couple's children and/or parents join in with their own colored sand, adding to the layers of colors, this is an expression of the harmony being created via the entire family.
