sand ceremony or unity candles

Recommended Posts

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.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
