6 WEDDING UNITY CEREMONY IDEAS

#1 - Sand Ceremony

The popular option of a sand ceremony is always a hit, and creates a beautiful piece to keep displayed around your home. This unity ceremony involves two colored sands being poured into a glass vessel, representing the blending of two lives that can never be separated.

This is also a wonderful option if you want to involve children, parents, and other special guests in your unity ceremony. Just add additional colors! Because the sand weighs down the glass vessels, this unity ceremony even works well in windy conditions.

#2 - Wine Box Ceremony

This is a quite romantic wedding unity ceremony idea! With this option, the couple writes a note to one another to put into a wine box with a bottle of wine. The box gets sealed during the ceremony, and the couple doesn’t open it until the designated time, such as 1 year, 5 years, etc. When they open it, they enjoy the bottle of wine together and read the letters the wrote to each other. It’s a beautiful way to reflect on the time that has passed and relive the wedding day emotions!

#3 - Handfasting Ceremony

This Celtic tradition is where the term “tying the knot” originated. This unity ceremony involves two colored cords being wrapped around the couple’s hands. As the knots are tied, binding them together, they recite their vows. They then keep the cord as a keepsake.

#4 - Glass Unity Ceremony

Similar to the sand ceremony, this wedding unity ceremony idea combines two or more colors of glass beads together. The glass beads can then be sent out to a glass-blowing studio to create a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork. The resulting ornamental piece would look lovely on a mantel or displayed in your home’s entryway. You’ll forever remember that special moment every time you see it!

#5 - Tree Planting

Another nice outdoor wedding unity ceremony idea combines nature and your love for one another, allowing that love to literally blossom. Plant a new tree and keep it for your future home. You could later add a tire swing for your children, decorate it for the holidays together, and other things to keep it a beautiful reminder of your wedding day.

Are the two of you from different areas? Obtain compatible soil from your hometowns and combine them for your tree planting! It’s a unique way to combine where you came from, knowing the tree will grow from the soil of your past into the soil of your forever together.

#6 - Peanut Butter & Jelly

Has anyone ever told you the two of you go together like peanut butter and jelly? Are the two of you a couple of foodies who fell in love? Look no further than the fun idea of a peanut butter and jelly ceremony!

With one person smearing the peanut butter and the other the jelly, you then combine your bread together to make the classic sandwich. Sharing a bite of this delicious staple, you’ll create a beautiful memory and remember that the two of you together are so much better than you are separately! Every time you enjoy another PB&J, you’ll reminisce on the day that meant so much to the two of you.
