Sand ceremony.. Mason jars?
As you know, I'm using a lot of mason jars at the reception. I had planned on decorating the church aisle with them, but I'm struggling with finding ways to do that, because of the chairs at the church and the carpet and all of that.. Anyway..

We want to do a sand ceremony at the wedding. I've seen all kinds of fancy vases and things for the sand ceremony and they're all pretty expensive.. So I was just planning on buying some cheap vases at Wal Mart lol But then it hit me that I could use mason jars for that.

But would that look cheap or tacky? I'm wondering if they aren't fancy enough.. Since everything I've seen is long and slender with pretty engravings and such. I can't make up my mind or tell if I like the idea or not lol What are your opinions?

I think it would look really nice, and you can add some ribbon to make it look nicer, because it won't be a plain jar then. I would go for it, my unity candle is kind of short compared to the average one, but I am putting it on something to give it some height.

I think the Mason Jars go perfectly with your theme, plus you have the benefit of being able to close up the jar with a lid after your done to keep the sand from making a mess!
I think anything goes as long as you like it. I made my sand ceremony container out of a shadow box!

Oh and I found this picture of pew decorations made out of mason jars...this might work for your aisle decorations without the fire hazard.

I love the idea of mason jars! My friend used them all over for her wedding and it was beautiful. It was part of her centerpieces and ceremony!

I am not really doing a mason jar theme, but I don't really want the normal toasting glasses - I would like mason jars.

I talked to a company who will engrave the mason jar. You could look into this, considering you could have your initials and date engraved. Just a thought.

I like the idea of using mason jars for this! I want to do the sand ceremony as well.. and I've looked at the sand vase kits and there all like $40 or $50 or $60 dollars.. and I really don't wanna pay that much lol. If you couldn't have the actual jar engraved.. you could always have the lid engraved.. just a thought though. If you don't mind.. I may steal this idea.. it will definitely save money :)

if you want a cheap sand ceramony kit, look on ebay. Got mine there for 10 bucks, and free engraving.

I used Mason Jars at my wedding to remember the people who could not be with us, maybe you could do the same to make your unity sand.

When I do a sand ceremony, I GIVE the couple the container of their blended sand. It is a clear glass, heart-shaped bottle with a cork.
