Sand Ceremony

Recommended Posts

I have a question. I would like to do the sand ceremony however i'm not sure how it all works. Im sure you can do whatever but I wanted to get some opinions on what others are doing or what they did.

 

Do we pour at the same time? If we do this wont it be just mess of sand, as apposed to pouring one at a time and making it into a neat pattern? 

 

Thoughts?

You can do either - I'd google and search on this stie for sand ceremony ideas, and just put together what you want!

 

Some people have parents put the "foundation" sand on the bottom (a layer) and then they pour together to signify they are now one/cannot be separated.

 

You could also do it alternating, if you still want it to signify togetherness but also want it to look pretty :)

 

I'm debating what I want said during the ceremony, and who I want to ask to do it.  I think we'll just alternate pouring so it's a pretty pattern :)

Thanks @marinah84 

 

I just saw that some people do paint as well... get a white canvas and have two different coloured paint and pour it from the top and it combines all pretty! What a neat idea!!! :D

The only thing I'd be careful of with that is the wind in Cancun!  I've been obsessively watching wedding videos at my resort (trying to find small details that people haven't posted, etc) and EVERY one of them is windy!  I'd be worried with paint that it'd get on the dress!

 

Maybe if you were doing an indoor ceremony?  Or if you were ok with doing it as part of your reception, in out of the wind?

 

It's a really fun and creative idea, but definitely has the potential to get messy!

It was very windy at my ceremony! I didn't do paint or sand or a veil or hair down lol and all of those would have been flying in the wind!!! Thankfully for it though or we would have been even more hot than we were

Did you do a candle lighting or anything instead of sand?

We did a sand ceremony and it was lovely

 

We kind of alternated pouring the sand back and forth and it looked very pretty at the end :)

We only did what the minister had planned. Very short. We only said 'I do' I thought it would be a repeat after me thing but it wasn't.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
