Family Sand Ceremony

Family Sand Ceremony

The Sand Ceremony is popular with families.  Each family member gets a different color sand and everyone pours their sand into the center container representing the joining of the family members. We adapt the ceremony accordingly for the family sand ceremony.

WORDING FOR FAMILY SAND CEREMONY

We are all members of one family, God’s family. Today as BRIDE and GROOM have sealed their commitment to each other with the exchange of rings they too make a commitment to their children. We recognize the significant role that ______, ______ , _______ and ______ play in this marriage celebrated today. They will now join BRIDE and GROOM in this commitment to each other by contributing a part of each individual person into one blended family. Today, this relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these _____ individual shells/containers of sand, each representing a member of the family in all that they were, all that that are, and all that they will ever be. As each individual’s sand is poured into the family’s one united common container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will become the bond with your family.

This ceremony is the perfect ending for your Wedding Ceremony. Including family members in your wedding ceremony seals the bond that you are not only marrying your spouse but their whole family too…
