DIY Wedding Wednesday: How To Personalize Your Ceremony

sand ceremony how to

I’ve never been one to do tradition for tradition’s sake. But when it comes to weddings certain rituals are worth exploring and honoring, especially when personalized with a sentimental twist. Which is precisely what today’s how-to feature, the sand ceremony, does for the unity ceremony concept. From as simple as a custom sand color selection, to a modernized vessel that acts as a perfect keepsake long after the big “I dos”, there’s a reason sand ceremonies continue to reign in popularity with brides and grooms across the globe. Here’s our top three favorite ways to incorporate the love ritual into your day.

#1 – A Sentimental Spin

Want something ultra unique? Go for a contemporary design that doubles as a keepsake. Opt for the framed version of this chic acrylic shadow box, to display a couple of your favorite wedding day pictures, or select the clear acrylic version to fill with something special from your big day, like the preserved petals from your bridal bouquet.

#2 – A Family Affair

For the couple whose love has grown beyond just two, go for a sand ceremony that allows you incorporate your little one, or ones. Their participation in the celebration of your unity will no doubt be cherished always.

#3 – Color Match

Just looking for something simple to mark the occasion? Then pick your color match, either something that goes with your wedding day design or a couple of shades that mean something special to the two of you, and run with a neutral vase set that can easily find a spot in your home for years to come.
