Sand ceremonies can add a little colour to your wedding ceremony. Much of a wedding ceremony is spoken, but including a sand ceremony can be a visual addition.

Each party to the marriage can have a beaker with a different coloured sand. Then the couple take turns to add their sand to an empty vase.

If they take turns evenly, the result is a layered representation of the couple’s combining of their life.

Children in the family can also be given a vial of sand to add, representing the blending of the family.
