Bride and Groom have decided that today they’d like to perform a sand ceremony. What this means is they are taking sand and pouring it into a beautiful container creating a symbol that will last a lifetime. It’s something they can look at and always remember this day. Each member of their family has a different color of sand they will add to this work or art. Sort of like a tapestry of their lives together and the beauty each of them brings is represented in the color they have chosen. What makes this special is it is not only Bride and Groom but their children too. Because today, we are coming together to say from this day forward, they are a family! And every member is important! As we do this today they’d also like to remember all those who are important in their lives. To remember and include those that are no longer here and not quite here yet so I’ll add glitter as a sign of these loved ones that they may always be magical in their lives and also to represent the mystical power of love that forever unites us all.
Kids (you can name them individually), are you ready for your parts? Are you ready to say you are all family?OK! Let’s do it!
Let’s take one moment to look at each container of sand. Once they are poured together, we can never separate them again. Each grain of sand is so tiny we could never do it. When we are done pouring them all together we’ll have created something no one else ever can. So remember that as special as this is, so is your family. The 6 of you together are a very special family and like no other. Celebrate the special bond that you will always have.
