All you need to do it make sure to top the contain completly off with the sand and put a lid on it.  The sand pressed down by the lid will keep it in the orginal design. =)

Something you might want to double check is if where you’re having your wedding will let you take the sand and/or customs coming home will let you bring it back! My friend got married on an island in Bali and went to Australia for their honeymoon and Australian customs wouldn’t let her bring the sand into the country. She had to throw it away!

@KM: Good point! I’ve done a lot of traveling to other counties for my major in college and all the costums forms I’ve seen ask if you have sand/soil samples and do not allow it either being brought in or taken out of the country. I would check into that before you go. That would be terrible to go through all that trouble to keep it perfect and you can’t bring it home!

You might want to have him bring his.    I’ve seen officiants do this and then pop the cork into the bottle SUPER tight after the ceremony.      

That’s so sad that someones sand got thrown away.   I wouldn’t have even thought of that.

If you fill the sand all the way up to the top and seal it well (either with wax or a tight cork), it won’t shift.  Of course, I’d be pretty careful with it, and would reccomend packing it in your carry on or putting lots of cushioning around it (if you get that heart one that someone suggested, you can put it, filled and sealed, back in its original box). 

I don’t know if you remember or ever made sand art at the fair as a kid… if you fill it ALLL the way up to the top and seal it well, the sand doesn’t have much of a place to go.  Of course, as some people have mentioned, you may not be able to use sand from the actual beach you are married on for when you come through customs.
