Wedding Vows on a personalized Unity Sand Ceremony Hourglass

One of the many possible ways to personalize a Unity Sand Ceremony Hourglass is for the bride and groom to have their wedding vows laser engraved on one or both of the two end-caps.

The Basic Wedding Hourglass from T & K Young is sure to please most newly wed couples. In the example shown, a portion of  the couple’s wedding invitation has been laser engraved on one of the two end-caps to personalize the hourglass.

An image of the wedding invitation has been provided to show why some portions of the laser engraving on the hourglass end-cap are clearer than others.

Unity Sand Ceremony Wedding Hourglasses are now available in 5.75″ and 7.0″ High Cases

Until now the Unity Sand Ceremony Wedding Hourglass has only been offered in the  9” size.

I am pleased to announce that it is now available in both the  306 case size (5.75” High) as well as the 707 case size (7.0” high).

Until I am able to find the time necessary to add new products to my website I have made a couple of changes that will make it possible for you to order these new hourglasses.

Follow this link to the 306 case size (5.75” High) where you will find when you click on the Running Time drop down menu to the option select SandWalnut 5.75" High Hourglass Ceremony/Random Time (+$17.50). This link will lead you to the 707 case size (7” high) where when you click on the Running Time drop down menu the option to select Sand Ceremony/Random Time (+$21.00) will be available. The extra charge covers the additional cost of shipping and handling  of the Unity Sand Ceremony Kit for your wedding ceremony.

Just like for the 9″, the Unity Sand Ceremony Kit that I will provide will contain a pair of plastic bottles filled with natural colored sand that is white as well as some that is off white for use in your Unity Ceremony along with everything else including an empty piece of unmounted hourglass, a sand to support the glass during your Unity Sand Ceremony and a funnel.

Annette and Armando ordered my Unity Sand Ceremony Wedding Hourglass for their wedding.

I received this note from them earlier today.

Dear Tom,                                                                                                                                                 Thank you so much for sending out the sand kit! I just wanted to let you know that it arrived safely. If the preliminary kit looks this good, we know that the final product will be of amazing quality.  It means so much to us that it is here already.  One less thing to worry about🙂  You’ll hear from us again after the wedding, when we send it back.                                                                                               Thanks, again!                                                                                                                                    Annette and Armando

Unity Sand Ceremony – Your sand or mine?

In order for me to send empty hourglass with the correct center opening for use in your Unity Sand Ceremony I will need to know if you plan to use your  sand or mine.

Standard Test Sieve

Standard Test Sieve

The sand used in my  Basic Wedding Hourglass, that has a running time of 60 +/- minutes, must pass through a No. 100 U.S.A. STANDARD TEST SIEVE with a mesh opening of only 0.0059 inches to flow freely. That, being about the size of a pin tip,  is too small for detail to show in a photo.

Most beach sand and sand from other locations is generally larger than will pass through a No. 100 U.S.A. STANDARD TEST SIEVE. For that reason if you are going to use your sand for your Unity Sand Ceremony Wedding Hourglass you will need the hourglass component with a larger center flow opening to allow the sand to pass from one end to the other.

After you place your order I will send you an information sheet as an email attachment titled  “Sand for a Custom Filled Wedding Hourglass” that should cover any questions that you may have regarding using my sand or yours.

Celebrating 40th Wedding Anniversary today!

Kathi and I were married 40 years ago today. Not many are able to boast such fortune. It is by all accounts a remarkable accomplishment.

Who would have guessed on May 24th of 1969 that I would be making hourglasses today? Certainly not Kathi or me.
