Something special for our kids?

Recommended Posts

So my daughter saw the box with my w-band in it and wanted to see. I showed her and told her that when her and I dress up like princesses on holidays, Daddy is going to give me that ring. So as a typical 3 year old girl, she asked if she can have a pretty ring when we dress up like pricesses too. That got me thinking, since FI and I have 2 kids together, this wedding is as much theirs as ours really, so should we do something with them too? Should we maybe get both our daughter and son a ring each that can symbolize the offical union of our family? Or are there any other ideas of how we can include our kids rather than only having them stand there as FG and RB?

Thing is they are so little they probs won't really remember so how about doing something really fun with them like swimming with the dolphins they will love it and it will stick more in their memories

there was an episode of "Whose Wedding Is It Anyway" about a month ago where a man was marrying a woman that had two kids from a previous relationship but he was adopting him (i'm not sure what happened with their dad). At their ceremony after they did their vowels they had vowels with their children about how they were going to be a family now and then they gave each one of their children a necklace, it was really sweet.

i think someone on here is doing a sand ceremony w/ everyone, incl. the kids. personally, i'd document what she said and then give her my wedding band when she gets married. give her a little dollar store ring for now.

If we were to get them little rings or something, it would be something that if it was lost, it would be no big deal. I do like the idea of writing what she said down and then one day passing the ring on to her. I could put a little blurb in the scrapbook about that!

I had my daughter as our FG (she is 5) and I thought about a nice piece of jewelry but I knew she would lose it LOL! Instead DH and I took her out to eat at the resort - just our family (we have a baby too) and told her how excited we were that she was going to be the flower girl! When I got my hair done at the salon, I took her to get her hair done also. We made a huge deal about that and when she put her dress on she felt like a real princess. To her it was all about wearing that dress (she's just like meLOL) So that was what truly made the day special - she felt like it was her day also :) Which it was!!

We are doing a sand ceremony, but I definitely want to get her something she will love and cherish. I am thinking about a locket necklace. I am not quite sure yet.
