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

      I already wanted to do unity sand instead of a candle, but this is so cool--shadowbox instead of a jar!!! then you can put your favorite picture on the front, use your wedding colors for the sand...and you always have a cute keepsake from your wedding day (family pic and involve him in the sand ceremony)
