The sand ceremony that takes place during a wedding is a unique way of showing the unity between a new husband and wife, or between a newly blended family. Two different colours of sand are placed in two separate containers. During the ceremony, the bride and groom pour their sand into a larger vase in the middle, symbolising the way their lives are mixing together. The kits can be bought in various places, mainly online.
This website (www.daisy-days.com) offers personalised vases and containers in various shapes and sizes, including heart shaped. They also have different coloured sand that you can purchase separately.
