I might be missing something, but what are you supposed to do with the unity sand from your ceremony? The whole point is to keep it right? Well what do you do with it once you have it back home? Keep it in the jar you poured it into? Transfer it to another container with a lid?
I’ve been looking into buying the glasses/sand for one, but I’m kind of stumped. I don’t want to have an open jar of sand around my house (besides the fact I live in earthquake country, I’m just clumsy in general, lets not even talk about issues of dust), but I haven’t found any nice jars with lids.
Am I the only one worried about this?

I’ve always thought about doing a unity candle that looks like unity sand– you can buy those wax beads at craft stores and you and your SO could mix them together and then make a candle out of the finished product?

You dont want to transfer it as then you will lose the design you and your husband create on your wedding day! 🙂 Our minister told us the ceremony is we each take turns pouring our colors seperate (maybe four layers) then we pour together, slowley so the sand mixes and makes a design, like sand art. You want to pick tow colors that stand out against each other. After you get it home, I have heard that you seal the top with wax to keep it from spilling/blowing out. Then dispaly it in your home. That is my plan, anyway… we will see how it goes! 🙂 You can get kits at Michaels, or you can get more intricate and get a vase engraved. I am going to try to “etch” the vase myself with our names and wedding date.

There are a number of sets that have lids. Google – Sand Ceremony sets with lids and you will find a number of them. My favorite is from Wedding Lighthouse the top is an oil lamp.
