How the Blending Ceremony Works:
To reflect the joining and blending of two lives into one, it is suggested to fill one cylinder with white sand to represent the couples spiritual foundation and to fill the other two cylinders each with a different colored sand to represent the individuals. During the ceremony each color is poured into the tall cylinder one by one (usually the celebrant adds the white sand first) and then all three are added together at the top to symbolize the union.
