I would like to use the unity sand in my ceremony for an afternoon garden wedding. However I can not find the words that are read by the minister. Any ideas were I can find the information. Thanks so much.

Here is a sand ceremony reading for the officiant or pastor:
Bride’s Name and Groom’s Name , you have just been bound as one with a beautiful exchnage of wedding bands and a sweet kiss, and this vow is a pledge between you who agree to commit themselves to each other for the rest of your lives. The most beautiful example of this partnership is the marriage relationship. Today, this relationship is symbolized by the pouring/combining of these two individual containers of sand. One representing you, the bride, and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be, and the other representing you, the groom, and all that you were and all that you are, and all that you will ever be. As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be. (If you want to include family in this ceremony you can then go on to invite others to come forward to join your family, binding everyone together as a family unit).
