caribbeanlover - if you find it in Canada post it here, I am from Canada and looking for something like this! I have had sand taken at customs and wondered about this, since I am dead set on doing it!! :) I'd like the jar, but the frame is very very nice as well!

Has anyone from Canada actually tried taking the sand back in their carry on? I was talking to my friend whose boyfriend works for Canadian Customs and he said that they would take it if you brought it in your carry on.

 

My question is even if you get a lid, wont the sand still mix if you pack it in your suitcase? I really really want to do a sand ceremony, so I hope there is some magical way out there to get your sand home!

Thing is your not allow to take sand from the beach home. Nor sea shells.

But it might be totaly different, they probably have alot of brides go through with different color sand, they realize we didn't take it from the beach. I read somewhere on here a bride had no problem taking back her sand from the ceremony. I highly doubt there is a way not to get the sand mix up tho on your way home. Who knows, maybe it'll look better!

I was at Michael's today and they have these vases (40% off right now!) that I think would work really well for the sand ceremony. They are two panes of glass with a metal design in the middle where you're supposed to pour the water. But it would be great for sand! The effect would be "floating" sand. THere are different metal designs (rectangle, hourglass, hearts, etc.) that would shape the sand differently. It would be very easy to fill it to the top of the metal shape and then tape over the top to keep the sand in. I'll have to see if I can get a picture of it.

    • 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.
