Ceremonies

Religious Ceremony

Religious Ceremony of a particular denomination (e.g., Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, etc.) or combination of denominations; characterized by formal or defining religious elements/rituals/traditions from one or more denominations.

Non-Denominational Ceremony

A non-denominational is a ceremony that is not of a particular denomination.

Interfaith Ceremony

Is also known as a multi-faith or interdenominational. A combination or blend of religions ranging from only some religion to being entirely religious.

Spiritual Ceremony

"Spiritual" means different things to different people. Most often, in a ceremony context, it is either the religious, sacred or divine feeling or essence underneath a religious element, ritual or tradition. Often it uses beautiful, inspiring words but is universal and stays away from any particular religion.

Civil/Non-Religious

Warmth and heart as any other type of ceremony. Non-religious or No religion in the ceremony whatsoever, including no prayer (although a couple may have an invocation or poem that would be as meaningful to them as a prayer would be to a religious person). It is also known as a court house, notary, JP or Justice of the Peace ceremony. Kindly note that, a non-religious or civil ceremony can have absolutely as much meaningfulness, civil means no religion, but not "no love".

Multi-Cultural Ceremony

Similar to interfaith except it involves combining or blending of a couple's cultures and heritage; may or may not have any religious elements - can be civil or non-religious, or very religious.

EXTRAS
SAND CEREMONY
Our Newest Extra
Regular or Hourglass





 As far as wedding-ceremony extras go, this one has quickly gained in popularity for good reason. It's a rather simple, visually appealing and highly customizable ritual that not only contributes a bit of worldliness but also leaves newlyweds with a meaningful souvenir of your big day.

Plus, unlike the unity candle, this ceremony isn't complicated by a light breeze. Sand ceremonies can move outdoors with no problem at all.

 At its simplest, a sand ceremony involves a symbolic blending of two different-colored sands into a single vessel. The meaning is clear: The blending of two different beings, the bride and the groom, into a single, inseparable unit that is their marriage -- the joining of their lives. Hard as it would be to separate out those grains of sand, that's how difficult it is to separate these two people. It usually takes place after the exchange of rings and vows (although it can go before or even during), and lasts just a couple of minutes.

 A basic sand ceremony involves three (typically glass) vessels -- one holding the bride's sand, one holding the groom's sand, and an empty one that will soon hold both, all sitting on a small table or stand.

  • The officiant explains the meaning of the ceremony and how it relates to the two people getting married.
  • The officiant invites the groom to pour a bit of his sand (let's call it blue sand) into the empty vessel.
  • The officiant invites the bride to do the same with her sand (let's say it's pink).
  • The bride and groom then pour their sands at the same time, in a single stream, into the vessel.
  • The officiant closes the ceremony with some words about the inextricable joining of their lives.
  • Family members can be included.

 The end result is a glass container holding one of blue sand (the groom), one layer of pink sand (the bride), and a top layer of purple sand, showing how the joining of the two have created a new, equally beautiful entity.
