will feel like a valuable part of the union right from the start. One
great way to do this is with a
sand unity ceremony set.

are lit by representatives of each party’s family at the beginning of
the ceremony. This lighting can be accompanied by a blessing, vows, or
can be done on its own. As timeless and elegant as this tradition is,
though, it leaves no room for members of a blended family.

other family members that you want to include in your ceremony. The
concept is similar to that of the unity candle ceremony, but much more
inclusive for blended families. Each party is given a small vase of
different-colored sand, which is then poured into a larger vase,
symbolizing the coming-together of your families. After the ceremony,
the vase can be placed in the home as a reminder of your special day.

blended family, it can also be a very personal part of your wedding
day. Your unity vase can be engraved with your names, monogram, or
other message. In addition, your choice of sand colors can reflect your
wedding colors, home décor, or any other significant part of your life.

your family were all included in your special day.
