Has anyone ever done this? I am just curious what kind of container you would recommend, I’d like for it to be glass because we’re going to see about having it engraved. My real concerns are a.) how are we going to transport it home on a plane without a huge mess and b.) where can I get the containers without have to buy in bulk, because let’s face it I just don’t need 25 glass bottles and 45 corks!

You can go to http://www.grannysbridal.com/Shoppe/pc/showsearchresults.asp?pageStyle=H&resultCnt=10&keyword=sand+ceremony&submit=Go+%3E%3E to check out some different styles of sand ceremony sets.
If you don’t want to purchase one of those sets, I suggest that if you have an IKEA where you are to check out the types of glass containers that they have. Also, the dollar store and the thrift store.
The best way to transport your sand is to stuff the top with cotton; make sure it is stuffed full. Then if you don’t have a lid, get some plastic; a baggie will do, and put it over the top of it, then wrap a couple of heavy duty rubber bands around the plastic that is covering the glass. One rubber band will do; however, if you have two, you will have a safety in case one of them breaks.

We did the sand ceremony for our legal beach wedding, I bought the container on Michaels and it came with a lead so after each one of us finish pouring we seal it, and even though the container moved A LOT the sand inside didn’t move at all and the cup stayed there the whole time, to pour the sand we just used starbucks frappuccino bottles. This is the post I wrote about our ceremony.
