Mayan Trumpet Ceremony Pre-Wedding Spa Experience Now Offered for Bridal Parties at Grand Velas Riviera Maya
Riviera Maya, Mexico (June 3, 2021) - Guests getting married at the AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Maya now have the opportunity to experience a YAAK UN Mayan Trumpet Ceremony. Suggested for the bridal party one day before the wedding, the authentic YAAK UN (translated Fall in Love in the native language) ceremony first unites the wedded to be and their bridal group with an Energetic Cleansing before the couple reads private vows. With Mayan trumpets, tuning forks, cymbals and quartz bowls chimed in the background, the one-hour purification ritual opens the heart, unblocks energy channels, and aligns the group with the true intention of love. Also designed to protect the marriage from negative forces, a Mayan Shaman blesses the couple. To conclude the spiritual ceremony, Mayan cacao will be shared to toast the bride and groom. The cost is $820 USD per group up to 25 people.
