A Guide to Having a Wedding Sand Ceremony

 

A ceremony can be dramatized effectively using metaphors and symbols.  For a wedding to be great imagery has to be used first to create a new trend where the memorable events and guests are involved.  Exceptional photos are made from imagery. 

 

To commemorate a marriage some vows have to be made by a couple during the wedding.  While this is being done the couple has to be at unity sand table.  A couple is declared one as the purpose of the unity sand and this is a worth getting familiarized to.  They are openly told that they have decided to join their lives together.  The sand vials are a representation of the different lives they have been living.  They are reminded of the meaning of the sand being the previous experiences and experiences they will have from there on in their lives together.  The couple is told to blow the sand.  Thereafter the two sand vials are assembled showing that they are no longer two but one and they will be joined together to make one.  This is an indication of what to expect in their marriage.  They are sent back to their original position.   

 

There are several imageries that a couple can select from here.  The most common is the sand for the ceremony, wine box, a unity candle and a letter box.  There are imageries such as dove release, champagne sharing, the blessing tree, flower presentation to female celebrities, and sometimes the vows that parents make to their children among others.  There are others which like tying the knot, stone blessing, signing a marriage certificate, gift presentation to them when they were kids, glass stomping normally by the Jews, hand fasting and bell of truce.

 

The ceremonies where imageries are not being used is short and it shows interests for those using imagery and those without.  The involvement of guests and capturing their attention is achieved using imageries. 

 

A couple decides who to send invites to and this people to participate in the Unity Sand.  By example is that mothers are invited to light their child's candle in this case either the bride or groom before they both light the unity candle themselves.  The newlywed's letter box is filled with letters from the family members. 

 

The bride's father is then requested to present them with a bell in this case the Bell of Truce from Ireland.  Children from past relationships are often called to pour sand or light a candle.  Some couples prefer to come up with their own piece of imagery.  Unity painting is a perfect example.        

 

Every couple after the wedding a positive that they will have a wonderful time together no wonder their weddings are very joyous.   The future in a couple's marriage could be a main purpose why they decide to incorporate traditional rituals.
