    So do we have to bring our own vows or does Sandals provide the vows for us??

      I want to write my own vows so my wedding planner just told me to bring them with me to my meeting with the WC there.

        Sandals provides them or you can write them. This is what ours were provided at SNG...

        I Christian, take you, Lisa to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, until we are parted by death. This is my solemn vow.

        I Lisa, take you, Christian, to be my husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, until we are parted by death. This is my solemn vow

          Thank you Lisa! So is that all? I walk down and then they say that right away or is there a little more added to it? If not, I think I would want to add a little something so its not so short. I'd like to do the sand ceremony too...

            Sorry, thought all you needed was the vows. This is what I was given by my TA and we used the same wording. You can switch thing around if needed. For instance, they typically do the sand ceremony at the end, I wanted it to be earlier and have the blessing last, so they switched it around. HTH

            -We had the "opening"
            -Then 2 readings from our siblings
            -The Sand Ceremony
            Lisa and Christian, you are making a commitment of your eternal love for one another. As you each hold your sand, the separate containers of sand represent your lives to this moment; individual and unique. As you now combine your sand together, your lives also join together as one. You may wish to leave a small amount of sand in each container to symbolize that although you are now joined as one, you each remain individuals. Today, this relationship is symbolized through the pourin gof these two individual containers of sand one, representing you, Lisa and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be, and the other representing you, Christian, and all that you were and all that you are, and all that you will ever be. As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be.

            -The Vows
            I Christian, take you, Lisa to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, until we are parted by death. This is my solemn vow.

            I Lisa, take you, Christian, to be my husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, until we are parted by death. This is my solemn vow

            -Then the blessing
            Bless preserve and keep you; the Lord mercifully with his favour look upon you and fill you with all spiritual benediction and grace that you may faithfully live together in this life and in the age to come have life everlasting.

            Now that Christian& Lisa have given themselves to each other by solemn vows with the joining of hands and giving and receiving of rings. I pronounce that you are husband and wife

            The whole ceremony ended up being a little over 20 min.
