Unity Sand Ceremony

The Unity Sand Ceremony is a novel alternative for the popular "unity candle ceremony" incorporated into many of today's weddings. The essence is to symbolize the union of "two into one". This sand version is not only beautiful and interesting, but also more appropriate for an outdoor setting.




The Unity Sand Ceremony has become very popular in recent years. It's perfect for outdoor ceremonies where weather can create issues with lighted candles, and it creates a memorable keepsake from your ceremony.

For the Unity Sand Ceremony, select three decorative glass vases and place one color of sand into one vase and a second color into another vase. This is designed to represent the Bride and Groom. At the appropriate point in the service the Groom pours a portion of his sand into the third vase. The Bride then pours a portion of her sand in on top of the Groom’s in the third vase. To conclude the Bride and the Groom jointly pour the remaining sand in each of their respective vases into the central vase. The co-mingling of the colored sand is an impressive demonstration of two into one. When children are involved, simply add additional colors of sand and incorporate the children in the Sand Ceremony. It is a safe and meaningful way to symbolize the new blended family.

Your vases can be engraved with initials, names or the wedding date making them a spectacular keepsake for years to come. Unity sand ceremony vases and supplies are available at WhereBridesGo.com.
