Well, we’ve gotta say, our Ask Emmaline inbox is blowing up! We love reading your wedding questions… like this one that comes from bride-to-be, Megan. She writes, “We want to do a unity ceremony at our wedding. Is there more than one type?” Fantastic question! Today we’ll show you three of the most popular unity ceremony ideas and tell you how they work. Let’s begin, shall we?
Unity Ceremony Ideas
The three most popular unity ceremony ideas are the sand ceremony, the unity candle, and the wine ceremony. Each of these unity ceremony ideas are used to show a couple’s partnership and is usually performed after the vows have been read.
1. Sand Ceremony
For a sand ceremony, you’ll need three containers (two the same size, one larger) and sand. At the ceremony, two containers are filled with sand; the larger container in the middle is empty. The bride and groom then pour their containers of sand into the center container to mix the two together as a sign of their unity. This is an especially fitting idea for beach weddings.

Question: what should you do when your ceremony takes place outdoors (on grass) and bridesmaids are wearing heels? You could issue a wedges / flats only rule (but that’s no fun) OR you can add stepping stones for bridesmaids! We vote for the latter. Stepping stones give bridesmaids a designated place to stand and keeps their heels from sinking into the grass. Regular stepping stones will work just fine, but then we spotted heart-shaped stepping stones and, well, see for yourself…

Infographic Wedding Program
This unique program reads like an infographic, which gives your guests background information on you as a couple, the wedding planning process, and more.

It gives a pie graph of how much he/she planned, along with a bar chart that shows how many dresses were tied on, how many feet of bunting was made, and how many calls were made to the MOH (Maid of Honor), among other things.
