The Tradition of the Sand Ceremony

The sand ceremony depicts this through the combination of various colors of sand. Traditionally, the bride has one color of sand and the groom has another. Either right before the vows, as a demonstration of what they are about to pledge, or right after the vows, as a demonstration of the covenant they have just made, the bride and the groom alternate pouring small amounts of their vases of sand into a third, central vase of sand.
