Sand Blending

The wedding sand ceremony expresses the coming together of two people or two families into one new family.

 

It is a very simple idea that can be incredibly powerful.  Typically, each person has different coloured sand and takes turns pouring it into one clear vessel, forming a layered effect.  

 

Sometimes just the couple participates, and sometimes the couple’s children and/or parents join in with their own coloured sand, adding to the layers of colours and expressing the harmony of the entire family.

 

When Does a Sand Ceremony Take Place?

There are no strict rules: couples may choose to place it at any point in their wedding ceremony. The most popular (and perhaps the most logical) time, however, is immediately following the vows and ring exchange. This allows the sand ceremony to feel most like a culmination of the ritual, once you have already been joined in marriage.
