Sand Unity Ceremony

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone!

 

There may be a thread on this already but how did you transport your colored sand down to the resort. This may sounds silly but can you just put 2 bags of sand on your carry on??

 

Thanks so much!! bunny_4.gif

Hey Everyone!!

 

I just got back from Mexico yesterday!!! It was fabulous and the wedding was beyond perfect!

I carried the sand on my carry on and it was no problem.  I only got stopped once going through security in the u.s. and they did a test on a small bit of sand and that was it. Coming back to the states I wasn't stopped at all.  cat.gif

I'd say the best bet would be to keep it in the package that it comes in.  Are any of you who are getting married on a beach planning on using some of the actual beach sand?  I was thinking it might be nice to put some of that on the bottom before layering our colored sand.  We're doing a picture frame instead of a vase, so there isn't much room, but I thought it might be nice to always have something from Punta Cana.  What are your thoughts?

I love the idea of putting some of the sand from your destination in your frame!!! I say do it!!!

 

I'm still debating on doing the sand ceremony.  My concern is transferring it back to the States.  Wouldn't it get mixed around and not look as nice?

I plan on having the mothers put some of the destination sand at the bottom before we do our sand ceremony.  Were also doing a picture frame. 

 

I think it might look a mess by the time we get it back to the states, so we plan on redoing it if it looks really bad.

We packed ours with bubble wrap on the way back and kept it in the carry on so it didn't move too much.  The sand didn't mix much more really. You can still see the way it was poured. Maybe if you put it in your checked luggage it might get mixed around more.   :)

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
