    I think it would be lovely to do it during your ceremony! What about having all the kids pour a little sand in, too – it can be symbolic of all of you becoming an “official” legal family!

    I would do it during your own ceremony, to really make it official in your minds!  You could always do another one at the later reception.  But given everything that’s going on, I’d want to do all the sentimental stuff right now.

    Best wishes for your man’s recovery, and congrats – hope it’s a lovely weekend!

    @TriciaG:  Have you thought about getting legally married, just the two of you, but not really counting it as your wedding? My sister and her husband were married in January, but got legally married in December for tax purposes. They didn’t do anything different between their legal marriage and ceremony, and their anniversary is the January date. You could get married legally, but not actually be married until your ceremony, if that makes sense… Then you could have a celebration and do the unity sand and everything and “get married”.
