Water or wine ceremony

Water ceremony

The water ceremony is similar to the sand ceremony but this ceremony blends two colours into one. Unlike with the sand ceremony, where you can get clear layers and blended layers, water really mixes together. If its two families mixing, you could ask the children to do their own and each say a few words of welcome to one another as they pour. This can be a wonderful and memorable way for children from different families to mix and feel involved in your exciting day.

Wine Ceremony

The wine ceremony, again, shows the merging of two into one, by two wines being blended into one (possibly red wine and white wine). Then the couple drinks from the shared container. This sharing of a cup is symbolic of togetherness.
