when to do our sand ceremony?

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

 

Our wedding is one week today (nothing like leaving it to the last minute, huh?)

 

I am trying to determine where the sand ceremony fits in... we are including my guy's son in the sand ceremony (if that makes any difference)...

 

The ceremony I have has us doing the vows, then there is a reading then the rings. The officiant speaks some more then announces us husband and wife.

 

Does the sand ceremony occur after the exchange of rings?

 

Thanks a bunch!!

 

Jenn

We're planning on doing the ceremony between readings and before the vows and rings (but we're doing a legal ceremony too). Sounds like you can do it whenever you want!

foxytv- was your ceremony a legal one? I am being told that we can only do the sand ceremony after we are married by my WC. She said the legal ceremonies can't be changed but the symbolic ones can be.

I just want to get your opinion if it's worth adding this at the end. I think it's a very symbolic part of the ceremony and I want to do it- but only if it flows right and doesn't look funky! Thoughts? Thanks a million :)

hmmm i should find out about this ... my WC said we could add a sand ceremony to the legal ceremony, but she didn't mention *when* i could do it. might seem weird if it's after we're already husband and wife, ya know?

Our ceremony was a symbolic (did the legal-ese before we left for our DW). The sand ceremony wasn't part of our ceremony at all. We did a Hand Ceremony as part of the actual ceremony, though, which was read by my uncle. Didn't want too much during the ceremony, so that's why we saved the sand ceremony for the reception. We think it was perfect just before the cake cutting. Worked for us (and we didn't do a reading with it - just poured the sand while people were gathering for the cake cutting).

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
