Blending of the Sands
All you need to do is find different coloured sand and 3 glasses or jars. It is a way of celebrating and bringing 2 lives and families together as one. The 2 separate bottles that you’re pouring the sand from symbolizes the 2 families becoming one.
This is perfect for a ceremony in Cyprus!
Then later on for your reception, you could re-use the glasses that you’ve poured the sand from as vases on your top table. If you don’t want to use glasses, why not try a different alternative such as shells.
If you have a bottle that doesn’t have a lid or top, just have some wax melted on top to seal the glass so the sand doesn’t fall out and voilà.., you have a beautiful keepsake to take home with you from your special day & a constant reminder of your promises made on your wedding day.
This is very similar to the unity candle ceremony, but just a colourful, unique alternative.
