A Simple Plan: Ideas

How to Organize for a Memorial Wedding Sand Ceremony The sand ceremony is an expression of joining together f two families or two individuals in a wedding. The idea may seem very simple, but it is very spectacular. The partners each with a different color of sand pours it into one jar one at a time. It appears in the vase in different layers. Sometimes the couple is the one that pours the sand and in other times the children of the couple or the parents join in the pouring each with different color sand. That adds to the layers of different colors making the entire family harmonious. Other couples use the lighting of a candle to signify their agreement. The sand is long lasting, and you can see it for many days as opposed to the candle that burns and gets finished. Again when it comes to the outdoor wedding, sand is resistant to the wind unlike the candle which will be difficult to light in the wind. The couple is each given a jar with a different color sand and after the officer explain a few words, they both pour into an empty vase one at a time. In most cases it is the groom who starts the pouring ceremony by pouring his first. The bride then pours hers as well which forms a separate layer. The members of the family each pour the sand in one vessel in different time. In case the couple is the only one pouring the sand, they keep adding layers to the vase. That makes the sand form a mixture of colors at the top which represents the united family. The couple would like to leave the last pouring for themselves. Others will like all the participants to pour at the same time in the final pouring. Wedding Sand ceremony does not have to be at any particular stage of the wedding. It can form a charming routine at the reception. A good number of people want the practice to follow the exchange of rings immediately. That makes the sand ceremony look like the crowning bit of the entire service. All the vases used in this ritual should have sand with a different color. The amount of the sand is not unique; it depends on the container that you have. You can get colored sand at any bridal retailer. Every participant is supposed to have their vase. You also need a central transparent vessel where all the members will pour their sand. If it is going to be done in the church, you need a small table placed near the altar. The ceremony can be carried out on the table where you have placed the vases. It is usually better if the couples can have the vases made with their names on them. For religious weddings the priest can start by pouring white sand as a symbol for God.A 10-Point Plan for Weddings (Without Being Overwhelmed)
