What you need for your sand ceremony:
Three Vases - 2 small vases, one for groom and on for bride; a larger, center vase where each participant will pour the sand into. If you choose to include the priest or child/children, you will need a vase for each participant.
Colored Sand - many select a different color sand for each participant and colors that compliment your wedding party.
Purchase vases and sand at a craft store, such as Michaels, or purchase a kit for your sand ceremony on-line at wedding specialty stores.
How the sand ceremony works:
Step 1: The groom pours a portion of his sand into the center vase.
Step 2: The bride then pours a portion of her sand into the center vase, creating a layered effect.
Step 3: The bride and groom simultaneously pour the sand into the center vase.
A sand-filled vase, symbolizing your marriage and wedding day. Cap the vase to ensure it doesn't spill!
