    HAND CEREMONY WORDING

     

     

    These are the hands of your best friend that you are holding on this day of renewal, as you promise to continue to love and cherish each other today, tomorrow and forever. These are the hands that have and will continue to work alongside yours, as together you continue to build your future. These are the hands that will passionately love and cherish you throughout the years, and with the slightest touch, comfort you like no other. These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind. These are the hands that will wipe the tears of sorrow and joy from your eyes countless times in the years to come. These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it. And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.

    I read on a website when I was figuring out how I was going to do the sand ceremony a suggestion to melt wax over the top of the jar to seal it. So that might be an option.

    Another way to keep the sand from shifting is to stuff the top with a small sponge or cotton balls. Then tape over the top. As well try to take it in your carryon and keep it upright!

     

    Have a wonderful renewal! 

    We leave this Sunday!!! Feb 11th through the 17th we are on the Royale side, all our guest have to leave on the 17th (they didn't have to go home but they couldn't stay at El Royale!) and we move to the Casita side for the second week for our honeymoon. We head home on the 24th. 

     

    So excited for you! Best wishes on your upcoming wedding.

        Kind of a random question for those of you who have been there before...which restaurant offers fondue?  I know they don't have their fondue restaurant anymore, but I believe one of the other restaurants sort of picked that up.  Can't seem to find it on any of their menus.  Anyone know?

        La isla has a fondue menu, but you have to ask for it. Yummmmmy!,

          I received an e-mail from our WC saying the options for the ceremony were the Presidential gazebo, D' Italia Casitas, of White Gazebo. I have been looking at pictures and I wanted to have my ceremony at Gazebo 55. Did she just not give us that option or did they switch the name of the gazebo. I want a more private feel to our ceremony. I don't want there to be random people on the beach near us, if that makes sense. Which gazebo did you pick and why? Is it private? I am not into the white gazebo considering it is above our guests and we want our feet in the sand as we say our vows. ANY recommendations would be great!

            I have a feeling that one is probably already booked. We're having the Presidential because it had the same type of feel as 55, and had a lot of nice lush greenery. It gave me the feeling of being very secluded. We didn't pick the white for the same reason - we wanted to be on the same level :) Hope that helps a little! Can't go wrong with any....you're on the beach in Mexico!

              Fingers crossed that our East coast family and friends continue to stay out of the line of the blizzard! Most of our wedding guest will get to EDR on Wed Feb 13 so we should be good. We have about 3 other couples joining us on Sunday when we head down and 2 more couples come in on Tuesday. Wednesday we have about 12 more couples coming! So Goldieloch47 you might see a crazy group on Thursday I apologies in advance!  

               

              The only tip I have is keep list... I have had my stuff I needed to take for the wedding in one pile on our guest room for months. But I think I have about 20 different list going right now with things to remember!

                It is probably because they already have Gazebo 55 booked, but if that's the one you wanted I would ask.

                We are getting married at D'Italia Casita because it is right on the beach and we only have 14 guests. It is right across from the Italian restaurant but it is on the very far end of the Casitas, so not set back like the others but a beautiful location. We are then having our reception at the Health Bar. There are just so many options and all great options, so just pick what feels right for you. The Health Bar is also down on the Casitas end and not secluded from guests, but we did a site visit and it was our favorite location right across from the beach.

                Hope this helps a bit and I would still ask your WC about 55.
