I always wanted to do a sand ceremony. The Unity candles were always nice, and I've really fallen in love with the new wine ceremony even. But the sand ceremony seemed like something that went well with our theme of our wedding and it would be something that we could place in our home for years to come as a rememberence of uniting as one.
As time went on I slowly started getting over the idea -- mainly because I already felt that our ceremony could get lengthy and I want to keep it at around 20-25 minutes. Although I'm sure it would only take a minute or two, I just felt we were adding in so many other things already with the readings, communion, etc. That was until this morning when I saw this picture on a friends Facebook page:
Perfect. We are doing two readings at our wedding (which I'm writing a seperate post about), one is just a verse while the other is a short story/poem. I figure that would be perfect for us to do the ceremony possibly during the longer reading.
I still have the thought in my mind that it could be "too much" and I'm adding too many "events" into our ceremony because I definately don't want to overdue it. What do you think? Should I just kick this idea or should I try and roll with it possibly closer to the wedding when our ceremony is more laid out?
