Unity Water Ceremony

The creating of a new color together from the mixing of two other colors symbolizes the new union.

The Unity Water ceremony incorporates two small glasses of different colored water and a larger glass into which the smaller glasses are emptied creating a third color.

You should experiment with the colored water long before the wedding, to find a combination that creates a color you really like. You may even be able to use the colors from your wedding theme.

If the bride and groom have children, each child may be included and given a smaller glass of the same color water as the parent to pour into the container.

THE CEREMONY
The groom begins by pouring the water from his glass into the central container.
The bride follows by pouring the water from her glass into the same container.
During the Unity Water ceremony, the following is an example of what may be said by the officiant:

__________ holds the container of yellow water. Yellow is the color of sunshine. The color yellow represents joy and happiness. It also stands for wisdom.
__________ holds the container of blue water. First prize gets the blue ribbon. Blue represents confidence and trust. A “true blue” friend is faithful and trustworthy.
__________ and __________, this empty vessel between you represents your marriage. It is a new beginning in your relationship with each other.
__________ as you pour your yellow water into the container you bring sunshine and wisdom to your marriage. And __________ as you pour your blue water into the marriage vessel, you bring confidence, trust and loyalty to your marriage.
The blending of the yellow and blue water creates green, representing the blending of your lives together as one. The color green represents stability, endurance, growth and harmony.
May your marriage reflect these qualities. May your energies in this marriage blend just as equally as your give freely of yourself while honoring the greatness of each other.
