seems kind of cool.  I don’t really see the point of unity ceremonies though.  You are already saying your vows.  Why do you need a physical symbol?  I had a Catholic ceremony and they strongly recommended against unity candles because they take away from the rest of the ceremony.  So I guess I just don’t see the point of all those “unity” items.  But I do know a lot of people use them so if you want to do something different the hourglass sounds like it’d be perfect.

That’s such a cool idea! What a neat twist on a common practice! Go for it!

It’s a nice idea, but over $100? I already made our candles for unity ceremony. I love hourglasses, but not at that price. It cost me like $17 to do all three candles and pewter holders.

I like how it incorporates your wedding day into every anniversary afterwards.

I wasnt planning on doing any of the physical unity ceremonies (candles, sand), but I really love the hour glass idea! I say go for it – no one will think its strange.
