OMG I am too. I cry at commercials... My sister's wedding song comes on the radio, and I start to cry.... I dont want to try to block out my feelings in order to NOT cry during my wedding but I dont know any other way!

Speaking of ceremony length, I actually want to make mine longer and want to add the Hand Ceremony. Have you guys heard of it:

Hand Ceremony

In the hand ceremony, the officiant (or person chosen to do this part) invites the bride and groom to view the hands of the other as a gift.

As an expression that your hearts are joined together in love, will you please face each other and hold hands, so you may feel the gift that you are to one another.
These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever.
These are the hands that will work alongside yours as together you build your future. These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch will comfort you like no other.
These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children.
These are the hands that will help you to hold your family as one.
And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.

Blessing after: “Our prayer for you today is that both of you will use these hands to build a marriage where all your dreams come true.â€


I love it. I might tweak the words a bit, but the gist is awesome. I like the idea of holding hands palm to palm at chest level or holding them palms up into each others palms up.

I don't know who to read it for us seeing as my parents are divorced and his Mom is widowed.... Maybe his Mom anyways?

AmyB - That is really cool! I like the hand ceremony, very unique.

 

I'm going to check out your brochure too!

 

Man crying, all my bridesmaids AND FI tell me they are for sure crying and I told them if they cry I will lose it!!!!

 

I was my Matron of Honor's MOH in June, like I said, stage fright, and I had to give a speech to her (which I've never done in any form) infront of her 120+ guests and I was ok, didn't make eye contact with a single person at first, then I look down at her and she's starting to cry... so I look over at the bridesmaids so I don't choke up and ALL of them are sobbing!!! GASP.... I burst into tears and hyperventilated through the remainder of my speech... jeez.

Much appreciated!

Crista

Oh no!!!!! This is why you have to go the comic route! I spoke about my sister at her wedding showing me the way and telling me when it was no longer cool to french roll your jeans. At my Best friend's I told them how we sniffed pepper to see if it would make us sneeze. Laughter is so much easier to get out - but then even doing the cheers to the new Mr & Mrs I can barely get that out!

I am going to see if WikiAnswers has anything for us saps!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
