Attention Brides and Grooms!
The hottest new wedding trend is actually not new at all! Couples have been using sand to symbolize unity for many years, and sand ceremonies in the US are starting to feature these ceremonies in addition, or more often in place of, the unity candle ceremony. It probably started in Hawaii as brides and grooms would stand barefoot on the beach. At the right moment in the ceremony, they would reach down and take a handful of sand from beneath their feet and pour it into a single container. If you're thinking of incorporating a sand ceremony into your special day, you've come to the right place.
Many couples use the same color sand as the accent colors for their wedding- i.e. if the bridesmaid dresses are light blue, then the gentleman uses light blue and the bride uses white, or vice-versa.
Order plenty of the sand and use as accents on the reception tables, even in the flower vases. Small containers with colored sand make the perfect backdrop for shells, decorative rock, or shiny costume jewelry- depending on your theme. Layer the bride and groom sand colors in decorative clear plastic or glass containers and use to accent the food tables.Many people find it helpful to order a sample pack of sand to be able to choose their colors. Order with plenty of time- we ship on Fridays and are closed for many holidays. We are rarely out of stock of any color.
Choose a wide-mouthed container (a wide-mouthed florist's vase works well) for the ceremony, then you may transfer the combined sand later into a permanent display container.
