Gran Bahia Principe Akumal/Tulum/Coba - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts


Funny, I was just about to re-post that thread too. since sunshine 2680 and Tlseege posted their unity sand frame, I've been on a rampage looking a suitable frame in Montreal. I found something comparable at Winners/Home Sense for $7.99!! There are 4 panels of glass inserts and 3 of them slide out. So what I'm going to do is hot glue the 1 of the 3 glass inserts and remove the 2 of 3rd glass insert in order to make the slot for sand larger. I'm going to try it this weekend and I'll re-post and let you all know how it goes.

 

Question: when during the ceremony would you do the sand ceremony?

 

I also found another post that has scripting on what to say during the sand ceremony. I will attach and hope you can see.

If doing a legal ceremony, the sand ceremony has to be inserted AFTER they declare you husband and wife and after you kiss.  It's kind of weird, but it worked.

Does anyone know if the all-inclusive food and drinks are 24hr at GBP Akumal? I noticed something on the webiste saying drinks until 11:30, does that mean if you go out to the bar past 11:30 you have to pay?

Hi Fraggle42, sorry you cannot download the document, it's bcz we're not junior members yet. I'll post the scripting I found.


Sand Ceremony #1

"Before the two of you met, your lives were on separate roads ... each going in different directions and seemingly leading to different destinations. But somewhere along the way (through some twist of fate) you did meet, and you fell in love. Today, you find yourselves standing here together at the threshold of a new path, and have promised to forever join your once separate journeys into one.

Before each of you there is a container of sand. Each container represents the separate journeys you once were on. They also represent your own sets of friends and families, that until today were apart from each other. I now ask that you blend these individual containers of sand together.

As the sand has blended together, your lives too are joined. Your once solitary journeys have become one of companionship, as you now set forth on a single path together into your future. Your friends and family are as one as well. You will now share those who are a part of your lives as you walk hand-in-hand

 

Sand Ceremony #2

As you stand beside the ocean, may your love always be as constant as the tide; waves flowing endlessly from the depths of the sea. Just as water is the eternal force of life, so is love. Love is the force that allows us to face fear and uncertainty with courage.

You have just sealed your relationship by giving and receiving of rings. But although you will be sharing one life, never forget that you are two separate people. Cherish and affirm your differences. Love each other. Keep your commitment primary. Together you will laugh and cry, be sick and well, be happy and angry, share and grow. Grow sometimes together, sometimes separately.

To symbolize this union and the importance of the individuals within the marriage, two separate colours of sand will be combined. Each one holds its own unique beauty, strength, and character. They can stand on their own and be whole, without need of anything else. However when these two are blended together they create and entirely new and extraordinarily more intricate entity.

Each grain of sand brings to the mixture a lasting beauty that forever enriches the combination. Please pour the sand into this common container to symbolize the union of your two lives.

 

Sand Ceremony #3

Now we shall celebrate this union as it is symbolized through the pouring of two individual containers of sand. One represents (Bride/Groom) and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be. The other represents (Groom/Bride) and all that you were and all that you are, and all that you will ever be. As the two vials of sand are poured into the third keepsake vase, the individual containers of sand ceased exist as they are now joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual vases, so will the love and bond between the two of you render you inseparable.

Sand Ceremony #4

Before you met, your lives were on different paths with different destinations. Love has brought you together and joined these separate paths into one.
The sand in these jars symbolize your separate lives, separate families, separate sets of friends, and the different life journeys you once traveled. I ask that each of you take one of the jars and that you fill the center jar together.


 

I hope this helps :)

To answer the questions about 24 hour food and drinks the answer is yes the 24 hour snack bars have a small menu and serve drinks all the time ;) and there is one at each resort, hope this helps

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
