Looking On The Bright Side of Tips
For over many years’ people who wish to be married have been choosing candle as a symbol of unity in their marriage. It is like this tradition is being broken as many people nowadays have switched to unity sand to be used in their wedding ceremonies. This has been easy to many couples as deciding on who to lit the candle was becoming difficult and unfair to the other partner. In ceremonial sand the people who wish to marry will have different colors of sand and even their family members if they would wish to do so. There is no big difference in the way the ceremony is celebrated to other types of wedding as they just follow the normal protocols.
Just like other ceremonies it will start with the officiant who will utter some few words and call the bride and groom forward. Then afterwards the officiant will offer the bride and the groom with different jars of sand with different types of colors according to the couples’ preference. Not only that, but they will also be provided with one big jar where they will pour their sands to form a mixture. Traditionally is the bride that comes before the groom, he will start by pouring his sand in the jar at the center. This will then be followed by the groom who will pour her sand to the central jar which will form two beautiful layers. They will do this simultaneously until that time that they would have finished all the sand in their jars.
The officiant will now take the opportunity to declare them husband and wife since by pouring the sand in one jar will show that they are now one. This will be followed by a series of activities as planned such as eating together as a family, holding a party where people will dance and drink to celebrate the newly wedded and then going for honeymoon in a place of their choice.
After the bride and groom have poured their sand other family members may also be given the opportunity to do the same. This is optional as it is not important that they pour their sand as they are not wedded.
It is clear to many people that wedding sand makes the marriage to be strong. For one this sand will last like forever unless someone decides to interfere with it in one way or the other. This sand is important as it brings flashback of some past events which were very important to this couples.
