About JanetandDan2014

  1. We were a bit away from the water but took about 5 minutes to walk down there. That is true if you have guests with mobility issues it may be a problem. We were so glad that we did but certainly understand it may not work for everyone.
  2. Sorry for the delay in responding. We just got back from our wedding in Mexico! It was perfect and when I get around to it I will be posting pics and such. Ok so...shell ceremony.... It was one of the best parts of our wedding. We had 30 guests, therefore we started with 30 seashells. I bought them at Michaels before we left and wrote a word on each shell. Fun, joy, hope, understand etc (basically the things you hope for in your marriage). As guests arrived I had my best friend and her sons pass out shells to each of the guests. At a point in the ceremony I had my friend come up to the front and read the following: Dan and Janet, before you met, your lives were on different paths with different destinations. But love has brought you together and joined these separate paths into one. Each of your guests has been given a shell to hold, bless and protect throughout your ceremony. Janet and Dan ask that in your mind and heart you take a moment and pray that their marriage be blessed. .....Pause for around 10-15 seconds.............. Dan and Janet will now count to 3 and we will cast our shells into the sea to spread love and good wishes to the happy couple! Janet and Dan: 1-2-3! (if your wedding is in Mexico you could do uno, dos, tres). Then everyone tosses their shells into the water. It makes for a wonderful photo opportunity. Hope that helps. You could choose to have the officiant read your ceremony, however, I wanted a way to include my friend.
  3. Hi everyone, So I have decided to do the Shell Ceremony and I have about 32 people attending. I am trying to come up with words to write on the shells for each of the guests to receive and toss into the water. I thought I would post what I have so far and see if anyone had suggestions of other to add. I'm sorry if this has been done already. I couldn't find a topic that discussed the words specifically. Love Laughter Hope Trust Understanding Forgiveness Fun Health Happiness Respect Fairness Communication Sharing Responsibility Faith Peace Friendship Admiration Passion Actually I have found many more so I am responding to my own thread. LOL. Hope it helps someone who is looking for quick words for their ceremony. Here are 35 words: Love Laughter Hope Trust Understanding Forgiveness Fun Health Happiness Respect Fairness Communication Support Tolerance Commitment Dependability Sharing Inspiration Affection Responsibility Faith Peace Friendship Admiration Sincerity Patience Generosity Wisdom Joy Compassion Humor Loyalty Comfort Safety

  5. Deanne, Wow you are soooo sweet to get back to me, especially in the process of being down there planning your own wedding!!! By now I guess you are married. CONGRATULATIONS! I can't wait to hear all about it and see pics. It sounds like you sorta have the opposite situation as what I have but your information was so helpful. I have just sort of relaxed and told myself I may not have a lot of the answers until I get down there right before the wedding. Our situation is that we are having a HUGE AHR on June 14th in St. Louis, MO. We want to do our first dance, cake, toasts, all of those fun post wedding moments on that day. So, in Mexico, while we want to have a celebration afterwards we do not need a huge $990 reception with sound system and such. This cocktail party may be an option for the $7/10 pp. We wanted to have an area where we could hang out and drink up with an ipod and kick back but I don't know that I need the huge reception/sound system type deal. UGH. I don't know what to do. Would you mind telling me more about the other inclusions in the Gold Star Package. What you added on? What you didn't? How much things were,etc. Clearly I do not need this info until you get back and unwind. Contact me when you are settled in at home. Instead of typing it all out, maybe we can have a brief phone conversation. I would love to hear the details of your ceremony. PM me and let me know. Thanks so much for getting back to me and again, CONGRATS!!!! @@Canadagoose @@Canadagoose actually I should be saying congrats on your renewal of vows!!!! Sorry!
