Including everyone...

I have heard/read about the sand ceremonies and I would like to do that but instead of having just us and/or parents add sand together, I would like all of our guests to add a little bit of sand as a way to unite our two families as one big family. What do you think?

We are doing the stone ceremony so each of our guests will put a stone in a pail that is passed around and then our moms are going to dump the stones in a bigger bucket. Now that I have bored you with what I am doing...You could do something similar and give each person a "shot" of sand and have them pass around what ever container you are putting it in. Once the containers get to the front you both can take them and put them together. This could be a good DIY project--figure out a fancy way to give each person a glass of sand. You could have your side do one color and his do another. If you are having a smaller group you each could walk to each person to get their sand.

I've seen similar things done with flowers. (I'm a caterer so I'm at a lot of weddings!)

 

At the start of the aisle there were large pails of white flowers and each guest chose one and added it to a green arrangement on the altar before the ceremony. The priest then went on to say how we are influenced by those who love us to make us a unique being...It was beautiful and needless to say I cried.

 

I think doing the same thing with sand would be a great way to make all of your guests feel special and a part of the ceremony!

Both ideas sound really great! I was actually thinking about doing the 'tossing of the stones' in the ocean or whatever you call it ceremony with my guests. But these 2 options I have to put on my list as well. bunny_4.gif

That sounds like a great idea! I love the shared sand, and I love the flower arrangement.

I love those ideas, especially the flower one. I'm just not sure how to transfer the sand home after our trip but I think there's a post somewhere about it. Thanks for your input I don't know what I'd do without this website!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
