Because we film weddings we've seen both the Cosmic and the Mayan ceremonies. The Mayan ceremonies are cool but sometimes a little hard to relate to. The Cosmic Ceremony is easier to connect to. Don't be put off by the silly name.

I am so excited to hear and see how wonderful your wedding ceremony was ~ your pics by the way are beautiful!! cheers.gif

Charlie and Maria are actually performing our Cosmic wedding ceremony next June in Akumal. We were hesitant at first out of fear that our guests would be expecting something more traditional and find it too strange, but our wedding coordinator explained to us how family-oriented, touching and spiritual the ceremony can be. It's also great that we will be able to incorporate the local culture and traditions, while still doing the regular procession entry and exchange vows at the end of the ceremony ~ I am so looking forward to the whole experience!! :)

Thank you so much for posting!! hug2.gif This is exactly what we want to do too. We want to do traditional vows (don't want to memorize or make up own) and a celtic handfasting with the exchange of rings.

In the description of the ceremony it says:
Quote:
Later, the couple communicates to each other whatever comes from their hearts, or whatever words they have previously prepared. If they like, this is the time to exchange rings as symbols of the union.

The group gives thanks to all the directions, and with kisses, hugs, and applause finish the ceremony.
How are you going to add it to the end? Are going to skip the last part where you give thanks to all directions? If not how are you ending the ceremony and will Maria still be officiating at that point?

One more question, are you getting an English translator? I am curious as to how the guests who don't speak Spanish know what to do for the circle and "offer a message, a song, or a poem to the couple." portions of the ceremony.

Sorry so many questions but I am SOOO excited. Carla wink.gif

Maria speaks in Spanish and Charlie translate in English. It's really cool how they do this, it's almost rhythmic, like one voice speaking two languages. They work together so well, I've seen plenty of awkward translation ceremonies and it's not like that at all.

Hello, hello!

My fiance and I have decided to also do the Cosmic Ceremony by Charlie and Maria. Question: Are you going through a wedding coordinator or are you dealing with them directly?

I have contacted a wedding coordinator about the ceremony and reception. However, I have contacted the location of where we are having our receptiona nd dealing with the restaurant directly so that negates needing a wedding coordinator for our reception. I'm thinking that I may be able to pull of not needing a wedding coordinator, but don't know how to contact Charlie and Maria directly. Any information you or anyone else might have will be most appreciated!!!!

Thank you so much! That was my exact fear that it would be a awkward translation. You should be a mind reader. wink.gif

Hi April! Well, we are actually dealing with a wedding coordinator in Akumal who uses Charlie and Maria for a majority of the weddings. I can certainly ask her if she has a contact number for Charlie and Maria, and let you know what she says.

Where are you having your ceremony and reception? If you are able to handle everything without the help of a coordinator, then that's fantastic and helps out with costs so much!! :) I have a friend (who also didn't have a WC) have a close friend, who wasn't in the wedding party, help her out by acting as the WC the day of. Are you having someone do this for you too? It's def. a good idea so you won't have to stress about anything ~ it's your day and instead you can just plan on looking beautiful and soaking in every moment :)

By the way I LOVE your dress in your siggy pic, it's gorgeous ~ cheer2.gif

Thank you for the dress compliment!

I have decided to go with Yazmin De La Mora as my wedding coordinator; she is the most feasible and has been the most professional, and extremely organized! She too works with Charlie and Maria-bonus!

The ceremony will be on a private beach in Playacar - similiar to Sol Tomorgo and Matt Adcock's wedding. The reception will be held at Casa del Agua restaurant in Playa del Carmen.

I agree that I do not want to stress on my wedding day - too much going on!

I know just what wedding your talking about, Tals and Someone's.... I already have implimented their "All White Wedding Idea" I thought it looked sooooo amazing. I loved it. I really want the cosmic wedding but the FI wants traditional.

 

Does your FI want one? If so you will have to let me know how you got him to do that.

 

Also my secondary color is purple...Will look hot with the all white. I booked Del Sol as well. We will have to chat!

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
