For over many years’ people who wish to be married have been choosing candle as a symbol of unity in their marriage. There is nothing good like embracing change as many people have been diverging their attention to unity sand in the place of unity candle. How is it even possible to choose one partner to be responsible in lighting the unity candle of which some people will interpret it negatively. Prior preparation will be made in wedding sand ceremony to select the best sand with the color which the bride and the groom will like including their family members. Just like other wedding all the normal procedures will be followed to the latter.
In this the bride and the group will have to stand in front of the audience after the officiant has quoted some few words. The officiant will the issue the bride and the groom with the main thing which is sand of different colors depending with the color that they will choose. In addition, he also provides a central jar of which the couples are going to pour their sand into. 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. This is can be done one after the other until their jars of sand are emptied. Meaning that now they will be one big family instead of two different people.
Being that they are now one, the officiant will pronounce them husband and wife having made the oath to be loyal to one another. From there the rest of the programs will continue as programmed which may include eating together as one big family, holding a party where people will dance to celebrate the newly wedded and maybe afterwards they will go for a 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. It is only allowed in some ceremonies as others only arrange for the bride and groom.
Many people have argued that unity sand strengthens the relationship between the husband and wife. 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.
