    We are getting married at Sandals Negril in May 2010. 213 days! Has anyone done the sand ceremony or unity candles? I asked the wc for pics but she only sent a pic of the sand vases and said she wouldn't recommend the candles for the outdoor wedding. I am not really impressed with the sand vases.

    Does it really get that windy? Also does anyone know what the candles look like? Can you bring your own vases or candles? I saw these that I really like:

    David's Bridal - Swarovski Crystal Lace Heart Unity*Candle Set

    Sand Ceremony Unity Set

    Sand Ceremony Kit

    I am still looking around, but I really want something personalized.

      We did the sand cermony and brought out own stuff, but of course on the way back it got messed up even though we packed it and sealed it. We still have it next to our wedding pictures in out livingroom. It is more of the meaning not the actual vase itself.

      Go with what in in your heart. If you want the candle do the candle. I did not have any wind, but I wasn't directly on the water.

        We did the sand ceremony at SNG. Bought the sand ceremony frame from Kohls and used Sandals own champagne glasses (the WC didn't really seem to care) & just tied flowers around them. We weren't gonna pay $100 or whatever it is to purchase the items from Sandals. It was perfect.

          Did the marriage officiant still do the sand ceremony reading even though you didn't pay the $100 and use their vases?

              Hi Lisa!  I am also looking to buy one of those sand frames and they are not easy to find.  Did you find it in the regular photo frame section at Kohls or somewhere else?
