The Essentials of Undertaking a Unity Sand for a Wedding Ceremony
Unity sand is one of the most popular unity ceremonies in a wedding ceremony as a symbol of unity and togetherness among the bride and groom or between two families if parents are involved at the sand unit ceremony. Sand unity ceremony is preferred for outdoor wedding ceremonies compares to candle lighting that goes off soon after lighting it because of the blowing wind and also sand unity ceremony is better of the candle lighting since it holds memories together for a longer period as it can be used as display at home as a sign of the unity and togetherness. Unlike for candle lighting unity sand is convenient for an outdoor wedding since it is not bothered if the day is too windy or not.
This is how a unity sand ceremony happens. At first the master of ceremony speaks a few things about the importance of the sand unity ceremony before handing the bride and groom relevant colored sand, the bride pours the first layer of sand into the jar forming the bottom layer at the previously empty vase. If the unity sand ceremony involves other parties such as the parents of the bride and groom they take a turn each one of them with a different color of sand. Once the groom pours his sand too to form the second layer they pour simultaneously with the bride their sand to form a blend of the sand into the jar that is a show of their unity. To ensure that a couples sand mixture tops the vase they may reserve their sand and give a chance for other participants to pour their unity sand.
A unity sand ceremony requires a number of items to be put in place. The different color of sand is determined by the number of people who will take part in the unity sand. The amount of sand you require will be dictated by the size of vase you’re trying to fill. Preferably a pound of sand of different color is good enough for the sand unity ceremony with as many different colors as the participants. All the individuals of the unity sand should have a sand tube whose top should be narrow to make it easy to pour in cleanly and also make it easy to pour when making the unity colors. Specious and wide enough vase top is required to ensure that unity sand is poured in easily. You will also need a small table where the participating people involved can move around it, also there is need to have some cotton wool or cotton balls preferable to fill the empty space that may be unfilled after the unity sand is all poured in to ensure easy transportation of the jar at home and avoid any alteration of the sand layers, finally a tape is vital to seal the top of the jar.
