Hi, We got married a week ago today. We had the sand ceremony and Jay Bowman was our officiant. He was awesome !!! You will love him. I purchased a sand ceremony set. It is a 6 piece ensemble with a heart shaped vase with a glass top and 3 heart shaped vases, and a stand. We had our initials and the wedding date engraved into the main "vessel" and the initial for my first name on one vase and the initial for my fiance's first name on another vase. We didn't need the 3rd vase, but the main vessel sits in a metal stand. I used "cocoa" colored sand and my husband used "terra cotta" colored sand. He had planned to use the real sand from the beach where we got married, but it had rained and the beach sand was all clumpy, not good for pouring. He was glad that I had purchased extra sand. Our two colors made a really pretty pattern when we did it. Unfortunately we had a 15 hour car ride home and although I packed it up in the original packaging, it did not hold the pretty pattern as well as I had hoped. It's still a wonderful keepsake. I put it on a shelf in our living room. I told my husband if he buys me flowers from time to time we can use the other vases.
