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…

Chelsey and Danny’s Mississippi mansion wedding was beautiful! Their Mississippi wedding this past summer was captured by photographer Kate from Kate Anthony Photography. Kate tells us, Chelsey & Danny were married in Holly Springs, Mississippi at the beautiful Montrose Arboretum. The Greek antebellum mansion was full of history as it was built in 1858 as a wedding present to the builder’s daughter. The mansion sits on a beautiful plot of land that was absolutely breathtaking and features 50 different species of trees. The inside of the mansion was a photographer’s dream come true: tons of beautiful natural lighting, vintage pieces galore, a spiral staircase, and tons of space. I tried to evoke the feeling of timeless romance in these photographs…”
