My husband and I used unity sand to our wedding. Aside from its meaningful symbolism, it is also a reminder of the commitment we promised to each other to patiently wait for each other until our marriage. It is the sign that as the Lord brought us together as one, we are inseparable like the blending of two colored sand.
|That's my father-in-law who married us|
It was near sunset, we were at the beach alone and everything was quiet. Only the warm afternoon waves and gentle breeze were audible. Jon bent on his one knee and popped 'the' question.
Now, that memory is not a distant apart anymore as the I proudly displayed it in our home to remember the promise we made like it was only yesterday.
This is the glass container from our wedding. My mumsy and I bought this at Hobby Lobby store. She is a great shopper.
I also put the music sheet of our wedding song.
|Thou shall not waste|
None shall go to waste. Since there's too much sand to keep just the right level for shells and the paper, I used some of the sand and put it in other bowls. Good thing I had two of these bowl as gifts. One from grandma and one from my mumsy. And the shells, I just happen to find that jon had them from some reason that I don't know.
What wedding left-overs did you save?
