Are any of you girls doing a sand ceremony during your ceremony (legal or symbolic)?...Or even the whole sand frame thing? I was just reading about this and I like the idea of the sand frame, but it seems like it might be a hassle to travel with it, both before and after.

Katie- I planned on doing a sand ceremony of some sort, but haven't given it too much thought! I didn't even think about traveling with it! Good question!! I want to hear how the other girls answer :)

Hey girls-I thought about doing the sand ceremony, but I ultimately decided against it. I think it will be too much of a hassle to bring there. My dress already weighs a TON and I am bringing raffia fans and chair bows, etc. so I don't want to add more weight. I think it is a cute idea though!

I am undecided between a flower ceremony and a sand ceremony...I like both a lot. The cons to a sand ceremony is the weight during travelling and the con for the flower ceremony is the cost of flowers for every guest, that could get expensive.

Obviously I still have some more thinking to do on this...

I 've seen the flower ceremony before in a friend of a friends wedding photos and really liked it. This is something that is done in Hawaii but I'd like to bring it to Mexico.

 

This is what it's about:

 

Circle of Love

 

If you are planning a Hawaii wedding on one of the beautiful beaches, then consider incorporating a Hawaiian love circle into your ceremony. A circle of flowers surrounds the bride and groom, as they stand together in the center during the ceremony. This is a great way to incorporate the colorful floral and fauna of the tropical landscape surrounding you – and it also symbolizes the eternity of your love. Many wedding designers can help you choose beautiful tropical flowers that match the colors you have chosen for your wedding in Hawaii and your Hawaiian beach wedding dress. Yellows, oranges, and reds are particularly popular with most couples – and they look beautiful in the photographs.

 

 

So what I was thinking is to give every guest a flower create the ring that my FI and I would stand in, it would be like a blessing from each guest for the two of us to join together.

That is the cutest thing I have ever heard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love that!!!! I don't think i'd have enough room in the gazebo though, because it looks pretty small. But precious! Thanks for sharing :)

Hey girls,

 

I like both the ideas of the sand and flower ceremonies, but I'm concerned about the logistics of them. So far, my plan is to have somebody read this poem because it make me cry everytime I read it, and it's so us ...

 

Love

 

I love you

Not only for what you are,

But for what I am

When I am with you.

 

I love you,

Not only for what

You have made of yourself,

But for what

You are making of me.

 

I love you

For the part of me

That you bring out;

 

I love you

For putting your hand

Into my heaped-up heart

And passing over

All the foolish, weak things

That you can't help

Dimly seeing there,

 

And for drawing out

Into the light

All the beautiful belongings

That no one else had looked

Quite far enough to find

 

I love you because you

Are helping me to make

Of the lumber of my life

Not a tavern

But a temple.

 

Out of the works

Of my every day

Not a reproach

But a song.

 

I love you

Because you have done

More than any creed

Could have done

To make me good.

And more than any fate

Could have done

To make me happy.

 

You have done it

Without a touch,

Without a word,

Without a sign.

 

You have done it

By being yourself.

Perhaps that is what

Being a friend means,

After all.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
