A "unity" hour glass instead of a unity candle. Use the timer to cool down before you say something in any/all future arguments. Neat idea.

Wedding Album and Reviews

Modernize It! Instead of mixing colored sands in a jar, this couple mixed paint on a canvas during their ceremony. This is how you change a tradition and make it your own! I love this! But maybe add a monogram in tape, and tear the tape off after the paint dries???----- love this idea just to have around the house

A wine blending ceremony can make your wedding special and memorable.

Wine Themed Fall Wedding - The Knot

The wine ceremony adds a nice 'visual' effect to your wedding ceremony. Drink from the "Cup of Life" - Symbolizing the journey of life before you.

The wine box & love letter ceremony adds a 'visual' effect to your wedding ceremony (guests love it). Ask how you can create your very own 'romantic time capsule!'

wine ceremony "sharing"...another version mothers each pour wine into glass and couple drinks from it

Cool take on unity candle/sand pouring: taking soil from the parents' homes and planting a tree with it. Could think about other plants as well

The "Unity" Tree instead of the traditional unity candles or sand. The couple purchased some stamps at a craft store with love/wedding/bible verses on them and tied those to the limbs.

An alternative to just putting the sand in a jar- use a shadow box!

Alternative to Unity Candle - Both mothers walk down the aisle with a special bouquet of flowers that they place in separate vases on the altar. The bride removes a flower from her mother's bouquet, and the groom does the same with his mother's bouquet. The couple simultaneously place their flowers in a single vase.
