The Sand Ceremony is a ceremony where different colored sands are poured into a single container. This single container can be a vase, a frame, or another type of container. The purpose of the ceremony is to symbolize the joining of two families. This ceremony can take place between the bride and groom, the bride and groom and children (we see this a lot when one or both of the parents are becoming step-parents), bride and groom and parents. The meaning is personal to each couple. Click here for some additional information regarding the sand ceremony.
