We ordered our sand ceremony vessel from HeirloomHourglass.com (this was a splurge of mine). They send out a reading you should do, but it is so dang long I am shortening it down to something like this:

We have all joined here on this day to witness  A & A join their lives and become Husband and Wife. This gift for your Wedding Day will become a cherished heirloom that can be passed on for generations to come and will always symbolize your love for each other. You now have what remains the most honorable title which may exist between a man and a woman – the title of Husband and Wife. Your first gift will be an Hourglass, one that you each will fill with sand that holds a personal memory to you and it will combine over the years together and become even more beautiful because it will carry with it every time it flows the special memories of this day and your many years of memories together as Husband and Wife. For centuries, the Hourglass has been considered an enduring symbol of the passage of time, so it is appropriate that your first gift will represent the beginning of your new lives as Mr. and Mrs. T. In every part of life, there are challenges. Marriage is no different. It might be difficult at times to find the words to say what you really mean. If this should happen, simply look to the flowing sand. This hourglass will bring you back to this very moment in time when you first filled it together, and you will remember the love. A  and A, as you think back and remember this marriage ceremony, always remember that it was love that brought you here today, it is only love which will make it a perfect marriage, and it is only by true love that your marriage shall last forever.
