Extra – A Sand Blending Ceremony
A nice extra add in Sand Blending Ceremony is where there are two containers of sand. Usually of different colours, each representing one of the individuals being united in marriage. As the two individual containers of sand are pour into the third it symbolizes the two becoming one. And in the say way you could not ‘undo’ the words uniting the couple, one would not be able to ‘unblend’ the sand.
We strongly recommend a Sand Blending Ceremony in place of a Candle Lighting Ceremony whenever you are outdoors. Flame and wind are not cooperative!
Sand Blending Ceremony – Idea 1
(Spouse1) and (Souse2) today you are making a life-long commitment to share the rest of your lives with each other.
Your relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these two individual containers of sand; each representing all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be.
Each one holds its own unique beauty, strength, and character. They can stand on their own and be whole, without the need of anything else. When the two are blended together they represent an entirely new and extraordinary love relationship. Each grain of sand brings to the mixture a lasting beauty that forever enriches the combination.
Sand Blending Ceremony – Idea 2
As you each hold your sand the separate containers of sand represent your lives to this moment; individual and unique. As you now combine your sand together, your lives also join together as one.
You may now blend the sand together symbolizing the uniting of the (Spouse1) and (Spouse2) into one.
The life that each of you have experienced until now, individually, will hereafter be inseparably united, for the two shall become one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be.
Here you can see how the Sand Blending Ceremony was part of a larger more formal display.
