Most people prefer using sand as a symbol of unity since it is cheap. Sand is locally available and you don’t need to have money to have it in your wedding. The fact that candles must be bought makes it expensive even if you can buy it at less fee. Generally, the cost of organizing sand ceremony is cheap compared to unity candle as there are a lot of things that you can forgo. Like one of the things that you can forgo is booking a venue as you can have the wedding officiated at the beach which is free of charge. Beaches are also good places for honeymoon which will save you money of travelling to places. With this you would have saved a lot of money which you can use in doing other things as well.
In wedding sand ceremony the couples will always love each other for a long period of time. This is because the symbol of their unity is something that last forever and will not even reduce in size making their love also to have the same belief. This is helpful especially during the times when the couples have some disagreements in their house. The jar of sand will be acting like the mediator as it will refresh their memories on the past good times they had and the vow they made. Just like the candle light disappears after sometime thus how their love will also diminish with time. In such case they will always be pushing even if they are facing serious challenges.
Another benefit of wedding sand ceremony is that it is more unique and traditional. There is nothing more satisfying than doing something that people does not think of. The introduction of sand makes the whole event to be different and traditional. Many people always like traditional events as they tend to be real without exaggeration.
Apart from that there is also fairness in the wedding sand ceremony. Not only that but the other family members will also not be given chance to participate in lighting the candle and they may see this as if they are sidelined. But in wedding sand everybody is given equal participation as each one of the them including all the family members will have their jar of sand to pour at the appropriate time.
