Bride and Groom, today you are making a lifelong commitment to share the rest of your lives with each other and honor your children as well.
Your family relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these individual containers of sand; one, representing you, BRIDE and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be, one representing you, GROOM, and all that you were and all that you are, and all that you will ever be and another container for each child.
There are children who will share in this marriage.
The gathering of this new family will have a deep influence on them.
We realize that in order for the home to be a happy one, it is essential that there be love and understanding between the children and the adults being married.
As you each hold your sand the separate containers of sand represent your lives to this moment; individual and unique.
As you now combine your sand together, your lives also join together as one family.
You may now blend the sand together symbolizing the uniting of the children and bride and groom into one.
Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage and your family be.
I do not claim to be the original author of this script. I am sharing it like this to make it easier for anyone to use.
