The Sand Ceremony
The flowing sand and blending of the colors in the Unity Sand Ceremony symbolize the bringing together of two lives into one. The two sands symbolize everything that the bride and groom have been or will become in the future.
The blending of the sand represents the union not only of them but their friends and families as well. The separate sands once poured into the unity vase can never be put back into their separate vases. They are forever entwined just as the lives and loves of the bride and groom.
Some couples prefer to leave a small amount of sand in their respective container to show that even though they now function as one, they remain individuals.
The Rose Ceremony
The Rose Ceremony is simple yet profoundly moving. The bride and groom exchange two red roses, symbolizing the giving and receiving of their love for each other throughout their entire married life. The Rose Ceremony also conveys how to use the rose and its symbolism in difficult times in order to forgive each other. In the Rose Ceremony, the Bride and Groom give each other a Rose. Two roses are all that is necessary. The Rose Ceremony is placed at the end of the ceremony just before being pronounced husband and wife.
In the past, the rose was considered a symbol of love and a single rose always meant only one thing - it meant the words "I love you." So it is appropriate that for your first gift - as husband and wife - that gift would be a single rose.
The Wine Ceremony
In the Wine ceremony the bride and groom each take a carafe of wine and pour the wine into a single glass. They both drink the mixed wine to symbolize their willingness to share in both the joys and the disappointments of life.
Some couples have the bride pour a glass of white wine while the groom pours a glass of red wine. The bride and groom drink from each glass and then pour the wine together in a separate glass and the new glass of wine would look like a rosé. The officiant can talk about the color of the wines and the blending of hearts together to become one.
The Unity Candle Ceremony
The lighting of a unity candle is a relatively recent addition to the traditional wedding ceremony, most popular in the United States. The unity candle ceremony uses two taper candles with a large pillar candle (called the "unity candle") in the center. At the beginning of the wedding ceremony, a representative from each family (usually the mothers of the bride and groom) light the two taper candles. Later in the ceremony (usually after the formal vows), the bride and groom use the two taper candles to light the large pillar (unity) candle together.
Often a unity candle is decorated with the wedding invitation, an inscription, a picture of the couple, or other ornamentation. The candles are almost always white. The lighting ceremony may be accompanied by special music, an explanation of the symbolism, or just some period of mutual gazing by the happy couple. In some circles, it is customary for the couple to save the unity candle and relight it on anniversaries.
The veil and lasso (lazo) ceremony is a Mexican or Filipino tradition. It occurs after the exchange of the vows. The lasso is done by either the officiant, family member or members or members of the wedding party. The bride and groom kneel and the cord, in the shape of a figure eight (symbolizing infinity and everlasting fidelity) is placed over the couples shoulders startingf with the groom. Then a veil is placed over their shoulder, starting with the grooms first. The bride and groom are tied together representing their union and never ending love. The couple remains kneeling as the officiant says a prayer over them. After the prayer, the lasso and veil are removed by the same person who placed them on the couple starting with the groom and then the bride. The lasso is then given to the bride as a symbol of their everlasasting love.
After the bride and groom both declare their intent to enter into this union, the hands of the couple are clasped and fastened together with a cord or cords just before, just after, or during their vows are made to one another. The wrapping of the cord forms an infinity symbol. The hand-fasting knot that is tied is a symbolic representation of oneness between the couple. In a show of unity, they become bound to each other.
