Sand, Sound & Soul Review

With the wedding seeming to loom closer with every day even though it's well over a year away I am jumping at every chance I get to delve into every aspect of wedding couture I can.  It's an interesting experience.  And not one that I think both parties of this engaged couple are enjoying.  As much Mike loves me I think he is getting tired of all the wedding stuff I am constantly at him with.

I am very interested in doing something that involves the kids in the ceremony and makes them feel that we are moving forward together as a family.  With that in mind I was very excited to read this book.

Book Summary:

Discover Sand Ceremony Secrets for Creating the Best Wording, Unity Pouring Styles, and Color Palette Choices!

In her ground-breaking new book, Sand, Sound & Soul: Sealing Your Wedding with a Personalized Unity Sand Ceremony, Sharon Vaz takes you on a fascinating tour of today's most unique wedding and commitment ceremony - capable of displaying your love on a whole new level.

The beauty of a Unity Sand Ceremony - and the secrets for making it all come together flawlessly on your special day - are all described in great detail in this book.  You'll fall in love with the concept of a Unity Sand Ceremony (if you're not already).  And you'll know exactly how to design yours with astonishing relevance and an expression of the meaningful depth of your love and togetherness.

From choosing the right wording to the best colors for your sand palette, Sharon Vaz walks you through the myriad of choices - explaining what they mean, how they got started, and how to make them possess even extra special meaning for you and your loved one. 

Special care is taken to show you how to choose the colors of your Unity Sand, as well as the case that will forever memorialize your beautiful ceremony.  Sharon Vaz also has a unique system for using your "value system" as the basis for choosing colors.  She shows you how to choose exactly the most appropriate colors, textures, and forms for the occasion.  Nothing is left to chance.

Ideal wordings are also supplied, with complete text for you, your partner, and the officiant or celebrant.  Furthermore, special text can be read aloud so that all your guests understand what's going on, too.  When guests feel included and know what the ceremony means, it's that much more special for everyone.  They're able to fully join in your emotion and enthusiasm.  That's why Sharon Vaz includes seven ready-to-use Officiant Introductions with this book!

If you're designing a wedding ceremony, a special anniversary, or any other ceremony, Sharon's expertise and guidance will give your ceremony so much more than if you tried it from scratch on your own.  Her unique flair come through as she describes a customized sand pouring sequence - from the small and intimate to the large and elaborate ceremonies.

Don't wait until the last minute to start planning.  And don't make the mistake of thinking you can "wing it"!  You shouldn't even think of planning a Unity Sand Ceremony without this book - with all the secrets and tips it holds for your special day!


This book was jammed back with information.  SO MUCH INFORMATION.  I finished it feeling that I knew everything I ever wanted to know about Unity Sand and then some.  A definite must read if you are considering planning one of these ceremonies yourself.  It's the first time I have ever used the highlight feature on my Kindle.  Probably also the most it will ever be used.

At some point I figured out that I could text specific points of text to Mike, unfortunately for him these were never sent in context, and I usually expected him to understand that I was talking about a wedding thing.

I look forward to sitting down with him and the kids and working on our own Unity Sand Ceremony.

Sand, Sound and Soul can be found on Amazon.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


  1. This sounds like a great idea! I know there's a unity candle that kids can be included in, but the idea of a sand ceremony sounds even more unique.

  2. It is really an interesting blog. I liked reading it. Sand ceremony is actually a unique idea which I had never heard. I wish now I can celebrate my wedding this way. Well, we are doing planning for my sister wedding which is at lovely San Diego Wedding venues. I am doing decoration myself.
