Has anyone done a sand ceremony where you pour the sand into a shadow-box picture frame?
I saw this idea online a few months ago and thought it was really cute.
But now that I’m looking to buy one, I’m shocked at how expensive they are ($60-$80) ….. and it doesn’t seem like any of the websites let you pick the color sand you want.
I’m willing to spend up to around $70 I guess but I looked at Say Anything, Custom Wedding Shop, Wedding Wire, Before The I Dos, Amazon …. no one seems to have the option to pick your sand color. I’d like blue and white. Or dark blue and light blue.
Or am I just missing something??
Please let me know where you got your frames!

I’ve been looking at having one of these too, but can’t explain the hefty price tag. Try etsy and get a custom order.

I just now looked on Amazon.com for you, and the average price was $50-60
I would try Etsy….but have you looked at Things Remembered at the mall? Everytime I go there they always have wedding stuff on display, and they go on sale all the time.

I’m sure you could make it somehow? I came across this:
I haven’t tried this^ way.
We’re using a glass block and adding our monogram on the front, maybe there is someway you can do the same, just with a photo?

I got mine at Hobby Lobby for $15.00. It is $30.00 regular price but all their wedding stuff is half off today.

@Stace126: I’m pretty sure the sand colours they use in the pics are for display purposes only. I had to buy all my sand separately for my heart vase ceremony set.

I bought ours from this shop on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/SayAnythingDesign?ref=l2-shopheader-name
It was $70 and it’s a 9×11 frame that can hold a 4×6 or 5×7 picture depending on how much sand you want to show. The way its built it allows you to replace the picture in the frame if you ever want to.
We used blue and white, which I purchased from Michaels.
One final note, it took a little while for us to fill up the frame with the sand. It seemed like we were pouring the sand forever. That being said, I LOVE having the frame displayed in our living room.
