The Sand Ceremony


A few symbolic moments after the Ring Exchange where the bride and groom pick up sand from the very spot they were married (usually in clam shells) and pour it together into ‘one’ vessel symbolizing their union in marriage.

The vessel is usually glass and is up to the bride and groom to acquire and bring. Some couples choose to have their mothers or children participate with them in the Sand Ceremony.

It’s much like the Unity Candle, but more beachy and an awesome keepsake.
