S and I are having our ceremony in an outdoor chapel so this discounted a candle lighting ceremony as part of our service (it would be embarassing if they couldn't get things lit - plus my sis had a candle lighting ceremony so I think I would like something a little different.
That's why S and I decided a sand ceremony performed by our mothers would be appropriate. (I always feel sorry for the mothers at weddings as its mostly focused on the father - he walks you down the aisle, the men predominantly make the speeches etc).
I have been looking up prices for sand ceremony kits and can you believe some wedding sites are charging $90+ for some coloured sand and 3 glass bottles.
Maybe I will try sourcing the bits myself although not sure I could be bothered with everything else to do on my list ... maybe I should just pay the price?
Its true what they say, the word wedding = triple normal price!
