The couple that is in wedding will have two different colored sand and they will each take turns to pour the sand into one vessel, and this will form a layered effect. During the wedding ceremony, the officiator of the wedding will explain the meaning of the wedding ceremony, he will then give the couple each a colored vase.
Pouring of the sand into a central vase will be started by the groom, the bride will then follow suit, this will create a layer of sand in the central vase. Pouring of the sand in the vase can also be done by the people that are participating in the wedding like the family. To represent a united family, each person will pour the sand at the same time so as to complete the unification.
