If you're angling to have some kind of unity ceremony at your wedding, you're probably seeing a lot about salt covenants, sand ceremonies, and unity candles, amirite? We've talked about lots of alternative unity ceremonies before, but we've got even more we wanted to collect and share with you to get your brain buzzing.
This time around, we're talking about a glow stick ceremony, a baking ceremony, a Beetlejuice sandworm ceremony, a honey ceremony, and even a lightsaber candle ceremony. Then we're going to show you a particularly awesome ceremony that gives you a super shmancy physical piece of evidence of the day to keep on display from our sponsor Unity in Glass. Let's jam about unity ceremonies, people!

While we go bananas over these unity ceremonies, one of our favorites has to be from our awesome sponsor, Unity in Glass. The biggest difference between a normal unity ceremony and Unity in Glass is that after the ceremony, you end up with one of the most beautiful sculptures ever to commemorate the day and keep on display. In a nutshell, you order colored glass crystals in your wedding colors, combine them in your own way during your unity ceremony, send them back to Unity in Glass, and they create a sculptural piece using your unique colored glass that lasts forever.
Unity in Glass can also make additional items (ornaments, paperweights, fluted bowls, infinity bowls, inventions pulled from your imagination), and create additional pieces from your remaining crystals for gifts to parents, children, or close friends. It's customizable and pants-droppingly gorgeous.
Here's the scoop on how this whole process works. Spoiler: it involves 2100 degrees of HEAT. Oooh, and here's a video documenting the process and the background to how artist and owner Lee Ware got it all going:
Go take a peek at what Unity in Glass can do, and then let us know what you end up doing for your own ceremony.
