Ceremony and Honeymoon

Recommended Posts

I was researching beach wedding decor(like seating, etc) and I found something really cool to do at the ceremony. It's called the "wish ceremony" and it is done after all the vows are said. Exact text pasted below:

 

During the ceremony the Bride and Groom each take a seashell from a basket and repeat a verse together. The guests are then asked to take a seashell.

After the couple are pronounced Husband and Wife, everyone follows them to the edge of the water to make a wish or a Blessing.

The couple counts to 3 and everyone casts the seashells into the water at the same time - NOT at the Groom! Ha!

 

The ripples that are made represent everyone's paths crossing and bring love and good wishes not only for the couple, but for anyone that they come into contact with.

We are definitely going to do that at our ceremony. I think it is so sweet. love.gif

 

As for the honeymoon, we have decided that it will be in Jamaica. We are thinking about staying at Jamaica Inn or Couples San Souci. smile29.gif

If anyone has stayed at these resorts whether it be for your wedding or honeymoon, feel free to share your experience! I've read great reviews for both places.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
