Our unique blown glass alternative to a sand ceremony may take some extra measures for your guests to fully understand our unity ceremony idea.

You're selecting the most elegant option for a unity ceremony.  Now, how do you best explain what's going on to your guests?

When Lee Ware developed this concept, using some creativity and expert glass blowing skills to preserve memories from your wedding day, he left out one thing.  How do you precisely, convey what’s going on to your guests?  They’ve all seen a unity sand

We’ve heard that guests have been extremely curious about this exciting process.   We’ve created a few ideas to help explain exactly what is going on for your guests.

    1. Include a little more info in your printed wedding program specifically about the Unity Ceremony.
“Unity Ceremony” JoAnn and Robert, as a symbol of their love, are combining glass color crystals of amethyst, aquamarine, and ivory.  After the wedding, their glass artist at UnityinGlass.com will complete a commissioned piece of glass artwork, exclusively for them.
2.  'A photo is worth 1000 words.' Show them what the final piece will look like! Download, print, and frame one of our high resolution photos and display on the table along with your Unity in Glass crystals during the wedding.

3. Perhaps work the high resolution photo into your programs?  We'd love a shout out for the work. 
4. Want to be SUPER-inclusive? Some couples have shared with us that they’ve reserved one color for ALL of their guests to add to the mixture. If you choose to do this, (it's tricky!) we recommend that you designate one person to oversee the entire operation—They will explain to each guest what is going on, how much to add (just a pinch or spoonful), and to move the color from the entrance to the alter at the right time.  Do keep in mind the TOTAL volume of color that we send is about 1 ¼- 1 ½ cups in volume after mixing-  so the volume for the guests will be small.  Maybe just a pinch or so each.
