Can anyone on here confirm if Carolina performs the symbolic ceremony and if so, can we give her our personal vows to read out loud and have us repeat? Also, for those of you doing the sand ceremony thing, how do you plan to bring the vase home unless it has sealed lid on it? I'm not finding very many of the jars online that have lids. Any suggestions? Thanks!
I was going to do the symbolic there and do the legal here..but my mom and FI didnt want that...thats how I got the second week lol.
Carolina does the vows for you, and it's included in the $650 price. So if you want to safe the $300 you can. You can even bring some 'fake' papers yourself and ask her to includ it in your ceremony.
I am also doing the sand ceremony... and we are getting a kit with a lid on it... however you may (probably not but may) have problems trying to bring it back since your not allowed to bring sand back.. so What I am doing is the same day we get married (at night) I will put epoxy clue in the jar and it'll clue the sand the way it was set.. this way there is no worries when you come home that it wont be the way you guys had poured it in.
