Exchange vows on the untamed sounds wild and dangerous for a wedding. Maybe it should just be: Exchange vows on the beautiful white-sand beach, before the splendour of a sunrise or sunset, or under the starlit sky. Any backdrop will come alive at your wedding with the vibrant colours that characterize the Riviera Maya.
The “Good Wish Mayan Ceremony” is a reaffirmation of marital vows involving potent symbols, objects and rituals from the ancient Mayans in a communion with nature. Enacted on the beach, the bride wears a hand-made Mayan dress and the groom wears a white, linen guayabera (Yucatan shirt). A ceremonial exchange of daisy flower bracelets is performed in Mayan, as stirring drums beat within the jungle and a conch-shell horn signals the ritual’s transformations. Flower petals are strewn across the waves to preserve the couple’s good wishes.
