<span style=”font-family: arial; font-size: 13px; color: #333333; line-height: 16px;”>Wine Ceremony: The bride and groom each take a carafe of wine and pour it into a single glass, which they both drink from. 

Water Ceremony: The couple each pour a different colored water into a single glass, creating a third color.  

Breaking Bread Ceremony: The bride and groom tear off pieces of bread, and then each eat a piece. Sometimes the bread is also shared with family and friends. It symbolizes their future as a family together. 

Circling: In Eastern European ceremonies, the bride and groom circle the altar three times, which are their first steps together as husband and wife.

I don’t know why it put all that coding in my post. Sorry about that!

There are a few options if you really like the unity candle – you could use hurricane glasses to protect the tapers and the central candle, to get them to light.  You could drill into a candle, and replace the wick with a “trick” birthday candle, that won’t blow out.  You could use electronic / battery operated LED candles as well.

Along the lines of the sand ceremony is the water ceremony, combining two colored liquids together to form a new color.  I know you said you’re not a fan of the sand ceremony, but on the beach, the sand ceremony can be really cool – especially if you incorporate some sand from the beach!

You could present each other with roses or a flower, as a symbolic representation of the vows you’ve just spoken.  There’s always a handfasting, too.
