Ceremony is an important part of our life so the consciousness, tenderness and thoughtfulness you put into your wedding ceremony will be an important step on the path through life together. To honor and respect this step the ceremony should be meaningful for the couple and what they value about each other, their relationship and life in general. The ceremony should be done with elements that are symbols for your friendship, love and common goals. The beauty and power of nature aligned with the honoring of the elements that surround us, inspire us and give life; the ocean, the wind, the earth and the sun, moon and stars form the ideal background and setting for such a special experience.

Each ceremony is crafted together honoring the ideas and wishes of the couple and will be a unique event. We encourage you to write your own vows and we welcome quotes and poems that you would like to include as well as readings by family members and friends to make the ceremony even more personal. All the ceremonies listed below are spiritual ceremonies to celebrate your love. They do not replace a legal marriage. Sundreamers can arrange a legal marriage here in Mexico, please inquire. Ceremonies can be celebrated in English, German or Spanish.

Union through the Four Elements

The couple fills a bottle with 4 different colors of sand while invoking the virtues of marriage into the relationship. The colors symbolize the four elements; Red for Fire, Blue for Water, Green for Earth and White for Air.




Water Union Ceremony

The salt water of the ocean has been used for centuries to purify and cleanse. In this ceremony, symbolizing a fresh life together, the couple will be purified by the celebrant by pouring ocean water and flower petals over their palms before they exchange the vows and the rings.




Rose Ceremony

In the past, the rose was considered a symbol of love and a single rose always meant only one thing - it meant the words "I love you." So it is appropriate that for your first gift - as husband and wife - that gift would be a single rose.



 
Ring Blessing by Family and Friends

The wedding rings are the visible symbol for your Union. We place the rings in a shell and pass them to your family members and friends. Each person will bless them with their best wishes for your future together.




Flower Offering to the Ocean
 
To honor the past, to give thanks for the present and to invoke love, happiness and abundance for the future, at the end of ceremony we give an offering of flowers to the ocean. The ceremony can be performed by only the couple or with all family members and friends.




Same Sex Commitment Ceremony

Sundreamers honors and welcomes same sex commitment ceremonies. We will assist you to find a meaningful ceremony that honors your commitment to each other. Sundreamers has worked with and conducted many same sex ceremonies for lesbian and gay couples.
