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.

Bling Unity Sand.

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

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!'

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

Salt Ceremony instead of a unity candle or sand. Dates back to ancient agreements and covenants, as well as having a great way to tie in our love of food and cooking... I think I like this idea! #timelesstreasure

No unity candle or sand ceremony for this couple! They showed their unity using their favorite colors of M's!!

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.
