    Sand Ceremony is a beautiful addition to the wedding ceremony, it is another version of the unity candle that is done in the church but because of Aruba's wind it is not a possibility,
    Sand Ceremony symbolizes the bringing together of two lives into one. The two sands symbolize everything that the bride and groom have been or will become in the future.
    Each person has a "vessel" of sand that represents who they are and it is done right after the ring exchange. You can choose the colors you wish, the sand and the vial can be bought at Michael's and they come in many shapes and forms and are a beautiful addition to the ceremony. Ask your planner if they have two simple vases for the sand because the only one you need is the one you fill.
    You would have someone read off a verse that goes like this: "As each pours in the sands, they show how the individual colors create a beautiful masterpiece of love and mutual respect. Just as the sands are forever intermixed, so are the lives of the people being celebrated today.
    You may also add parents or your children as the ceremony is representing a powerful way to
    symbolize your love and commitment to one another and love ones. Various ways just Google it...
    Capturing the passion and love of your special day in paradise.

    Personal Officiant

    My brother is ordained in the United States. Is there anyway that he would be allowed perform the legal ceremony in town hall? Does that part need to be done by an employee?

    Thanks!

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum

    have your wedding planner make the inquiry for you.
    or if you want you can try to get hold of mr betto christians 011-297-583-4400 at the civil house.
    he is the person in charge of the legal end of the ceremonies.

    Hi there, you might have already received the information, but just in case please allow me to elaborate. Only a registrar with jurisdiction under the Dutch law is able to perform the civil ceremony, your brother will be allowed to add a few words if you wish, but the actual "wedding" must be officiated by one of the 4 loacl registrars! Hope this information is of assistance! Have a great weekend!
