Glass Ceremonies: A Unique Take on the Traditional Unity Ceremony
Love is like glass: beautiful, infinitely renewable and hot! Third Degree is taking the the idea of a Unity Ceremony to the next level with our custom Glass Ceremony. Much like a sand ceremony, couples use colored glass crystals (called FRIT) in place of sand for their unity ceremony during their wedding.
1. Couples pick and order colored glass crystals. Some couples pick the colors of their wedding. Some pick a scheme that matches their home’s decor. We offer lots of options. Check out all of the color selections below.
2. Next, they pick what they will have made. Bowls and platters, which can be used every day as a loving reminder, to sculpted glass objects d’art, like our Double Helix or Open Heart… couples have the freedom to decide what works best.
3. Third Degree preps the crystals. Then, couples can either pick up their crystals at Third Degree, if they live in the St. Louis area, or we can ship them to out of town folks. We also offer the vases to pour with- see below.
4. They combine during their colors during the wedding as a Unity Ceremony. We even send wording for your officiant to use! We’ve got some pretty amazing photos of Glass Ceremonies in action below.
5. After the wedding, couples bring (if in town) or mail (if out of town) their mixed crystals back to Third Degree.
6. Then, the magic happens! One of our talented artists will create a one-of-a-kind glass creation with the couple’s mixed crystals that will last a lifetime. Couples can choose to have multiple pieces made with their combined frit such as personalized gifts of thanks for parents and friends- decorative ornaments or wine stoppers. Glass Ornaments and Bottle Stoppers start at $25. Vases and Bowls typically cost around $175. We offer lots of options here too. Check out our selection and our portfolio of completed pieces below.
7. Last, when the piece has cooled down and been polished, it’s ready for pick up! We mail finished work to our out of town couples.
