Unity Sand Ceremony Script for a Family
The Sand Ceremony is a perfect ceremony when you are joining together a new family. If the kids are the right age, this can be symbolic for each member of the family with their own sand color. I had one family use sand colors for the new house where they would all live together to be a memorable and symbolic decoration. This first ceremony is from one of the very first family weddings I performed with a family. I will always remember them!
Brittney and Brandon 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 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 Brittney and Brandon 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.
Hailey, Jaxon and Cody, 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.
Today, Bride and Groom are making a life-long commitment to share the rest of your lives with each other and to honor your son 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, all that you are, and all that you will ever be.
Your son will share in this marriage as part of the family being joined. The gathering of this new family will have a deep influence upon 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. Each one holds its own unique beauty, strength, and character. They can stand on their own and be whole, without need of anything else. However, when these three are blended together they create an entirely new and extraordinarily more intricate entity. Each grain of sand brings to the mixture a lasting beauty that will forever enrich the combination.
We will begin with a layer of neutral sand which symbolizes this marriage that is grounded, as God has set the foundation.
Bride and Groom, please pour the sand into this common container to symbolize the union of your lives.
You may now blend the sand together symbolizing the uniting of Groom and the two of you 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.
As you now combine your sand together, your lives also join together as one family. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be a molding of two individual personalities, bonded together forming one heart, one love. The life that each of you experienced now, individually, will hereafter be inseparably united, for the two shall become one family.
