If you have been attending beach weddings, you must have witnessed one of these sand wedding ceremonies. Often, an amazing table is placed in front of the ceremony site, best decorated with wedding themes in the mind. To signify top traditions, a vase is put on the table. This is the only traditional section of the ceremony, the vase holding the gifts or contributions from each and every person who wish to award the couples as they take part in the ceremony.
A complete wedding sand ceremony will have the couple each selecting a color for their family. These sand colors will then be poured down as their parents walk down the stage and this will signify the unity of the marriage ceremony. With the Unity Vase on the table, the sample container is put on it at the table. This will make it easy for the parents to walk to the table and pick up the designated container that has been labelled with a place card holder then pour the sand into the unity vase. Wedding sand ceremonies are so amazing and many couples, friends, grandparents attend and they will be seen when the have not left the ceremony. In case the couples will want to let every generation like the young or grandparents represented, they can just order other small containers containing sand so that they will pour too.
