Family Unity Sand Ceremony
PARTNER 1 and PARTNER 2 , today as you have reaffirmed your commitment to one another by the giving and receiving of rings, you too make a re-commitment to your children and all of you as a family.
Today, this special relationship will be symbolized through the pouring of these individual containers of sand, each representing a member of this family. We lovingly recognize the significant role that these children play in this reaffirmation being celebrated here today.
The separate bottles of sand symbolize your separate lives, separate families and separate sets of friends. They represent all that you were, all that you are and all that you’ll ever be as individuals. As these containers of sand are poured into the common united family container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your new family be.
