Everyone has heard of a sand ceremony. They are increasingly becoming just as popular as unity candles. I love the concept behind them- the separate vases represent the bride + groom as individuals, once the sand is combined into a third vase it can never be separated, and nor can the relationship. You also end up with something beautiful to display in your home. It's easy to spice up a sand ceremony, literally. If you + your soon-to-be husband love cooking, why not use your favorite spices instead of sand? At Last Wedding + Event Design couple Carmen + Tyler implemented rice + beans from where they were born to represent their 'Spanish' + 'Country' style backgrounds- how unique! Another way to add more meaning to the ceremony is to include your family. At Last recently did another wedding where the bride + groom each had children from previous relationships. They had their kips participate as well to represent their blended family becoming one.
