    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.

                I have never heard of a flower ceremony either! That sounds really cute!

                  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.

                      That is beautiful Kelly! I would have that read or read that at my wedding, but I would turn into a crying mess! That is so sweet.
