    Hoping someone can help me in describing the sand ceremony at Paradisus. I am going to have a symbolic ceremony and afraid that it will be extremely short and thought maybe the sand ceremony will add that special touch. How is it incorporated into your vows?
    Thanks

      sand ceremony is normally given for a close person of the couple in paradisus and any resort they normally reads a short speech previouslly prepared.that's my experience in punta cana and take as long you considerate should takes.
      is something simple but very deep most of the times.
      hope my onfo works for you..

        Here is a sample reading for the Sand ceremony

        As you stand beside the ocean, may your love always be as constant as the tide; waves flowing endlessly from the depths of the sea. Just as water is the eternal force of life, so is love. Love is the force that allows us to face fear and uncertainty with courage.
        You have just sealed your relationship by giving and receiving of rings. But although you will be sharing one life, never forget that you are two separate people. Cherish and affirm your differences. Love each other. Keep your commitment primary. Together you will laugh and cry, be sick and well, be happy and angry, share and grow. Grow sometimes together, sometimes separately.
        To symbolize this union and the importance of the individuals within the marriage, two separate colours of sand will be combined. Each one holds its own unique beauty, strength, and character. They can stand on their own and be whole, without need of anything else. However when these two are blended together they create and entirely new and extraordinarily more intricate entity.
        Each grain of sand brings to the mixture a lasting beauty that forever enriches the combination. Please pour the sand into this common container to symbolize the union of your two lives.
        (Begin pouring sand)
        ______ and ______, just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual container, so will your marriage be a molding of two individual personalities, bonded together forming one heart, one life, and one family.

                Hey! We personalized our ceremony by having my maid of honor read a little poem about marriage after the Dominican Judge and Translator said their thing....Then we did the exchange of rings and then had another friend read the sand ceremony poem (easier to understand our friends then the Translator).... They had absolutely no issues with us personalizing our ceremony Here is a copy of our sand ceremony below:

                Bride and Groom, may your love always be as constant as the never ending waves, flowing endlessly from the depths of the sea.

                Just as the waters touch and nourish the many shores of the earth, may your love be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

                Just as there will never be a morning without the oceans flow, there will never be a day without your love for eachother.

                You have just sealed your relationship by the giving and receiving of rings. This beautiful union is symbolized through the combining of these two individual jars of sand.

                The first jar represents you, Bride, in all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be. The other jar represents you, Groom, in all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be.
                Each one holds its own unique beauty, strength and character. They can stand on their own and be whole, without need of anything else. However, when these two are blended together they create an entirely new and extraordinary more intricate entity.

                Each grain of sand brings to the mixture a lasting beauty that forever enriches the combination. When you pour the sand into this common container, it symbolizes the union of your two lives.
                (begin pouring)

                Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again in the individual containers, so will your marriage be a molding of two individual personalities, bonded together, forming one heart, one love.
                The life that each of you experienced now, individually, will hereafter be inseparably united, for the two shall become one.
