    Haha! Our WCs seems to be ignoring everyone, still waiting for my confirmation, they charged my account so I'd like to get a receipt. I haven't thought about ceremonies yet, but knowing my FI we will keep it as simple as possible :) The next thing on my list is to put down the deposit on our room, finalize the website and make my invitations and find a part-time job *deep sigh* to pay for all of this haha!

      Ha!  I should get a second job too!  I hate how all of our guests think we're getting away cheap because we're doing a destination wedding.  They dont realize that we still pay per head and for all the extras.  And we're covering our wedding party's rooms for 3 nights.  It's expensive!

       

      I should work on our website too...good idea :)

          Since I haven't contributed much I thought I would sure my wedding website.  It has been very helpful thus far since not many of my guests have been bugging me about questions.  Check it out if you want!

              Nan - I contacted your florist but haven't heard back yet.  I'm really hoping I hear back soon because I would love those centerpieces at that price and not the $245 my resort wants to charge me!

                  I just finished the first draft of our ceremony... I pieced it together from other ones that people have posted... here it is...

                   

                   

                  Entering of the Bride

                  We are here today to participate in a most joyous occasion; to celebrate one of the greatest moments in life, by acknowledging the wedding of Carl and Alison.

                  Today Carl and Alison proclaim their love to the world, and our joy and thoughts are with them.

                  Being assured of your love as life long companions, and that you have your families blessings, I now ask, who gives this women to be married to this man?

                  (Michael says “I do”)
                   

                  Thank you, Michael.


                  Opening Blessing

                  Carl, Alison, Family and Friends, I would like to welcome you to Riviera Maya,  Mexico.

                  Carl and Alison, you have known each other from the first glance of acquaintance to this point of commitment. At some point, you decided to marry. From that moment of yes to this moment of yes, indeed, you have been making promises and agreements in an informal way.

                  All those conversations that were held riding in a car or over a meal or during long walks - all those sentences that began with “When we’re married” and continued with “I will and you will and we will”- those late night talks that included “someday” and “somehow” and “maybe”- and all those promises that are unspoken matters of the heart.

                  All these common things, and more, are the real process of a wedding. The vows that you are about to make are a way of saying to one another, “ You know all those things we’ve promised and hoped and dreamed- well, I meant it all, every word.” Look at one another and remember this moment in time.

                  Before this moment you have been many things to one another- best friend, companion, video game partner, and even teacher, for you have learned much from one another in these last few years. Now you shall say a few words that take you across a threshold of life, and things will never quite be the same between you. For after these vows, you shall say to the world, this- is my husband, this- is my wife.

                  By entering into this marriage, Carl and Alison are stating publicly, the feelings, and commitments they have held privately between them. They are proclaiming their love for, their trust in and their loyalty to the one, they cherish above all others.

                  Marriage has been described as living in love with your best friend. Love is one of the few constants in the universe. It is reality, affinity, and communication. Only love is capable of joining living beings by their deepest essence, uniting, completing, and fulfilling them.

                  Before you are joined in marriage in my presence and before your witnesses, I am to remind you of the serious and binding nature of the relationship you are now about to enter. Are you both here of your own free will?

                  Carl and Alison would you please face each other and join your hands.


                  Vows

                  Carl, as I say these words, would you please repeat after me…

                  I love you, Alison. You are my best friend. Today I give myself to you in marriage. I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you, and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle.


                  I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems hard, when our love is simple, and when it is an effort. I promise to cherish you, and to always hold you in highest regard. These things I give to you today, and all the days of our life. I am forever yours……faithfully.

                  Alison, as I say these words, would you please repeat after me…

                  I love you, Carl, You too are my best friend. Today I give myself to you in marriage. I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you, and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle. I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems hard, when our love is simple, and when it is an effort. I promise to cherish you, and to always hold you in highest regard. These things I give to you today, and all the days of our life. I am forever yours……faithfully.


                  The Rings

                  The wedding ring, traditionally, is a symbol of the unbroken circle of love as it has neither a beginning nor an end. It should always remind those who wear it of the sacredness of marriage and the love that feeds it.

                  Carl and Alison, your rings are intimately associated with your intent to honor and treasure the vows you have made today. By exchanging rings, resolve to live your vows and not to let them drift in shallow promises. Believe and trust that the words you have spoken have the capacity to create the marriage, family and life of your dreams, and that the rings you exchange will have the power to return you to your vows.

                  These rings mark the beginning of a long journey together, wear them proudly, as they are symbols which speak of love that you have for each other….

                  Carl as you place this ring on Alison’s finger please repeat after me…

                  Alison, I give you this ring, as a sign of our marriage, and a lasting reminder, of the vows made between us today. I give you this ring, as a reminder that I will love, honor, and cherish you, in all times, in all places, and in all ways, forever.

                  Alison, if you accept please say I do…

                  Alison as you place this ring on Carl’s finger, please repeat after me…

                  Carl, I to give you this ring, as a sign of our marriage, and a lasting reminder, of the vows made between us today. I give you this ring, as a reminder that I will love, honor, and cherish you, in all times, in all places, and in all ways, forever.

                  Carl, if you except, please say “I Do”.

                   

                  Engagement Ring


                  The engagement ring is a symbol of promise and intention. Now the intention is realized and the promise fulfilled. Carl, please place the engagement ring on Alison’s finger over her wedding band to symbolize that the love that brought you together will always protect and sustain your marriage.


                  Hand Blessing


                  Carl, please hold Alison’s hands palms up, so you may see the gift that they are to you.
                  These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and vibrant with love, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as she promises to passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness.
                  These are the hands that will work along side yours, as together you build your future, as you laugh and cry, as you share your innermost secrets and dreams.
                  These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes: tears of sorrow and tears of joy.
                  These are the hands that will comfort you in illness, and hold you when fear or grief engulfs your heart.
                  And these are the hands that when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.

                  Alison, will you please hold Carl’s hands, palms up, so you may feel the gift they are to you.
                  Carl, take a look at the position of your hands with Alison’s and know that this is the last time that you will have the “upper hand.”

                  These are the hands of your best friend, smooth, young and carefree, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as he promises to passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness.
                  These are the hands that will massage tension from you neck and back in the evenings after you’ve both had a long hard day.
                  These are the hands that will hold you tight as you struggle through difficult times.
                  These are the hands that will comfort you when you are sick, or console you when you are grieving.
                  And these are the hands that will give you support as she encourages you to chase down your dreams. Together as a team, everything you wish for can be realized.

                  Ladies and Gentlemen, Carl and Alison have demonstrated in your presence today, their belief in their love, and their desire to live together in Holy Matrimony. If you also believe in their love, and wish to add your blessing on their marriage today, please respond now by saying……………WE DO
                  And are you all willing to sustain and strengthen this marriage, by giving Carl and Alison the public commitment of your love and support, through all the ups and downs ahead of them…If you are willing, please say……….WE ARE


                  Pronouncement

                  Now that you have joined yourselves in matrimony, may you strive always to meet this commitment, with the same spirit you now are now shining. We all bear witness to this ceremony you have just performed, and this bond that has been formed today can be broken by none.

                  With family and friends, in front of the presence of God and his beautiful creations of the sand and sea, you may now call yourselves by those old and respected names, Husband and Wife.

                  Carl, you may kiss the bride.

                  Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce to you Mr. and Mrs. Carl Groff.

                    SKing24, you're a very nice bride since you are paying for your wedding party's rooms.  We are not paying for anything for our wedding party, not even their attire.  Our party is WAY too big for that and our budget is too small.  We feel that whoever wants to be there will be there, no matter how much it costs them.
