    Hi Yaw!!  My fiance and I are eloping in December, and so far I have the song I'm walking down the aisle/beach to him and our 1st dance song as well.  My question is when the ceremony is over should we have something to kinda walk away to for video purposes or No??!?!!  I can't decide on this, becuase it will be just the 2 of us no guest!  Whats your thoughts on this, how would you do it.  I'm afraid if we just stand there after the video may look awkward or funny! Thoughts suggestions please!!!

    Of course!! Why not?? We did, and it was just the 2 of us! We got married in Jamaica, so I had recorded steel drum music but a bit of it was the traditional stuff. It was what I wanted so it's what we did.

     

    Don't let the fact that it's just the two of you take away anything that will make your wedding wonderful for you.Sure there are things you can't do because it's only the two of you, but you can still have a wonderful wedding. Do what makes you happy!!

      @acw271011 Can I ask you  a few questions... Did you write your on ceremony or use something the resort already had.  Also when your ceremony is over how did you officiant end it did you guys like face away from him and he formally announced you and you walked away or how did you go about doing that?!

       

      Thanks so much!

      No problem! You won't find anyone here that isn't willing to share information!!

       

      We got married in Jamaica in one of the few resorts that has a gazebo right on the beach. We went with a non-denominational minister. We aren't overly religious but I didn't want a straight generic ceremony. We didn't right our own except for one thing I added to the end of our ceremony and that was the marriage poem, which I totally love. The minister even had something for our sand ceremony which was really nice. I didn't even write anything special for that. He was such a sweet, sweet man and I think the fact that we are much older and it was second time around for both of us, he was so serious part of the time but it felt like he was really talking to us, not like we were wedding number whatever for him even though he wrote our names on his hand so he wouldn't forget! I laughed out loud at that!! lol

       

      He did announce us at the end. There was a girl from this site that got married 2 days before we did, and she lives not far from us so we looked out for each other at the resort. I creeped her wedding and vice versa, and she brought her sister in law to ours! It was so funny. Plus, we met a couple of people at the resort - we didn't get married until Thursday so had the whole week for stuff - that just sort of showed up for our ceremony. They didn't get too close and were completely respectful but they were close enough when the minister announced us they all cheered. it was so cute. Plus, we had the 2 wedding coordinators that were our witnesses, the guy running the sound equipment, our photographer, our video guy, and a couple of other resort staff that all clapped when he announced us. You definitely won't be totally by yourselves!! All the world loves a wedding. People will congratulate you as you walk by them. It was tough for us because we had originally planned for a group. A few people dropped out, then it was a panic because others were afraid they wouldnt' get the group rate so they cancelled. In the end, it was just the 2 of us. I was upset but hubby was just po'd. I think the head WC took pity on us because we got little extras added on during the day that I don't know if we were supposed to get and I think it was because she knew our plans had fallen apart and we were by ourselves. We had a recessional but just a short one. Like not the whole big long piece of music. They had champagne waiting for us, the resort staff congratulated us, plus Vicky and a couple of others sort of moved in just a little closer so we talked to them for a few minutes. It all worked out just great.

       

      We had our little reception dinner in a corner of the restaurant so no on would disturb us. Our photographer stayed and had dinner with us so we talked quite a bit with him. I cried when I saw the cake they did for us because again they went above and beyond. They took it back to our room for us and we we able to nibble on it for the next 2 days until we left.

       

      I promise you - these resorts are used to having just twosomes for weddings. Not every one they do is a big group so they will handle it just fine and it will be a wonderful day, I promise!!!

       

      Good luck!!
