Sand Ceremony


This ceremony symbolizes the joining of two separate lives as one.

____________ and __________will now symbolize their union with a sand ceremony.

_____________ and ____________, today you join your separate lives together.  These two separate bottles of sand sybolize your separate lives, separate families and separate groups of friends.  They represent all that you are and will ever be as individuals.

They also represent your lives before today.  Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into indiviual containers, so shall your marriage be, for the two of you are now joined as one.  You will each remain individuals with your own uniqueness, but equally important is the reality that you no longer live for yourselves alone, but for each other as well.
