Hi Mexican Bride our wedding is booked for a 4pm service too, the sand isnt too hot so bare feet will be ok, this is what my bridesmaids are planning on.   Flip flops take a wee bit of getting used to the toe post - its the same with any new shoes. 

All the best with your planning

     Thanks AD2012 we were looking online & a few people had said that the reservation were 10pm onwards!!

    At 4pm the sand won't be too hot, especially in February! 

     

    Flip flops will flip sand up... mostly in your dress... where you will have sweaty legs, thus sticking to your legs.  It doesn't happen to everyone, but the chances are very good.

      So, I'd err on the side of caution and perhaps provide OFF wipes?  Easy to pack and easy to use.

      Oh no we are going in November and mosquites love my hubby to be and he has quite bad reactions to them. Hope he doesnot  have nasty bites for our wedding photos. What repellants do people recommend available in the UK or in resort?

      @Fraggle42

      We found the Avon Skin So Soft "Woodland Fresh" spray or body lotion (pale green bottle) worked great for most of us.  For those that were bitten they put TCP or Vick vapour rub on the bites and the itch vanished.

        I'm going to wear barefoot sandals, similar to these:

          Hi

           

          Can somone PLEASE help me?

          I am renewing my wedding vows in 3 weeks time at GBP and have been emailing Jazmin Ortiz at the resort for the last 6-8 weeks with no reply!

          Do I have the right email address: groupsmx1@bahia-principe.com

           I am asking about using a sand ceremony and whether we need to bring any wording for it amongst other things.

          Someone please help. I'm starting to panic now!

          Thank you

           

          Ps. For the bride asking abouting footwear for the sand, I am having barefoot sandels. Very pretty but without the 'flip' 'flop' .

            Tink, you could maybe email my coordinator to see what's up? I've got Eugenia, she's at groupsmx2@bahia-principe.com.

              I agree with Tink - if anyone knows if we need wording for the sand ceremony or not? and if so - where do we find some good wording samples online?

              First off, Tink, I'll be there during your vow renewals!  How fun!  I'll have to lurk and see if I can catch a peek!

               

              Sand ceremony, definitely bring your own wording. 

               

              For us, we had the Rascall Flatts song Bless the Broken Road as our sand ceremony song... so this was our wording.  We had my aunt read it.

               

               There is a song that speaks of “a long and winding road” and before you met, your lives were on such a road... each going in different directions and seemingly leading to different destinations. But somewhere along the way you took a fork in the road to a destination called “love” and today you find yourselves standing together at the entrance of a new path that will 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 once were apart. I will ask that in a moment you both blend your individual container of sand together... representing the coming together of your friends and family, through your marriage, into one. And as the sand is blended into one container, your once solitary journeys will now be one of companionship, as you walk a single path together into your future.

               

              As the sand has blended together, your lives are now joined. Your friends and family are as one as well, for now you will share those who are in your lives and will walk hand-in-hand along the path of your marriage - united and strong as husband and wife.
