    good question. i'm not exactly sure. I will ask Heather and get back to you. I know you can bring your own coloured sand...and probably the resort can provide the vases, but will definitely charge you. because there is a fee for everything!! haha.

    Blood tests are $90 each, to be paid IN CASH to the doctor.

     

    Jill… best wishes!!  I cannot wait to hear about how amazing your wedding was!

     

    We had private shuttle service.  Cancun Valet.  I highly recommend them.

     

    For the sand ceremony, we brought our own colored sand and vases.  We used a vase picture frame for the centerpiece and dumped the sand into that.  So the layers of sand were the background to a picture of us.

                  Sunshine2680 did you pour the 2 sands into the frame originally or did your pour the 2 sands in a larger vase initially and then transffered to the frame? I'm just wondering how brides transferred the 2 mixed sand back home without losing the original design/shape of the poured sand. know what I mean?

                    I haven't gotten married yet - ha ha- i the frame comes with a lid on it but I will probably end up carrying it on the plane just to be safe!
                    Not sure what other brides have done - maybe Tlseege can give us some pointers!
