A Look at Sand Ceremonies
The purpose of the sand ceremony is to symbolise the commitment
of each contributor to the couple's relationship, it's success
and fulfillment. The sand ceremony involves several family members,
guests or friends and several glass containers.
A large glass container is placed in the centre of a room or
table, and it is filled with coloured sands from smaller containers.
Each contributing member, will add increments of sand to the central
container, as a symbol of their commitment to the couple's relationship.
Once the central container is full, the couple will keep the
sand forever, placing it in their house as a constant reminder
of everyone's (including their), commitment to the prosperity
of the relationship.
