Bride and Groom, today you are making a life-long commitment to share the rest of your lives with each other.
Your 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, and the other representing you, Groom, and all that you were and all that you are, and all that you will ever be.
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.
At this time, I would invite the parents of Bride and Groom to come forward. These four vials of sand represent the bride and groom and each family.
You may now blend the sand together symbolizing the uniting of the two families 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 families 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.
