Read more You might remember our sponsor Unity in Glass from when we first introduced them to you back in 2011 as an alternative unity ceremony. Unity in Glass was started with the help of a creative bride who wanted a hand-blown vase made from their unity sand ceremony. Over the next few years Unity in Glass grew from a team of one, into a team a five — making gorgeous glass work from sand ceremonies for couples all over the world. As if that alone wasn't awesome enough, here's what else is new from Unity in Glass (including a special offer!)… Unity Sculptures in various colors. Unity in Glass, currently serves the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The rest are served by their new European team based in Yens, Switzerland. And both locations have garnered nothing but amazing reviews from people all over the world… "My husband and I wanted to do a sand ceremony at our wedding, but wanted something that we could keep forever. We found unity in glass and thought the concept was so beautiful and unique. We just received our vase that was made from the glass pieces we used at our ceremony and it is gorgeous. They also gave us a little pendant that I've put on my keychain and think of our wedding every time I see it! They make beautiful, unique, and memory filled pieces that will last a lifetime!! I love our vase!" -Mónica "I found Unity in Glass when looking for alternatives for the sand ceremony. I was blown away by the beauty of each glass piece. After researching it further, we decided to pick colors and the sculpture. I even found a reading for the ceremony that described what the beads would be made into. After waiting patiently to receive our one-of-a-kind sculpture, it arrived today. It is everything I hoped for and more! It's so beautiful! There was also a sweet pendant made from our beads and some left over beads. I'm so happy we decided to purchase the sculpture. Definitely worth the price! Thank you so much! We will cherish it forever! -Kelly" I love the Aria Unity Vases Unity in Glass is also featured in our Offbeat Vendors guide!

Show/Hide comments [ 1 ] I know offbeat bride loves this company but they are SO expensive. I found a local glass blower that was willing to do this for MUCH much less. Not only that, we can actually be part of the glass blowing process and arent limited to a choice of a useless sculpture or a bowl. We are doing a Christmas ornament. I feel better supporting a local artist. There is also a glass artist studio out of Estes Park, CO (Rocky Mountain Glass) that does this for much less too. Again, you arent limited in choice of 2 different items. They are again a small artist studio that are significantly less. Nothing necessarily against this company, but they are not the only option out there for couples who want to do this.
