When they came back from the first weekend of being at their mom's after we got engaged, the were kind of distant and we could tell she must have said something. We are including the boys in the wedding. The older one is serving as the "junior" best man and the younger one is the ring bearer. I am saying vows with both of them and exchanging gifts (they are giving me a wedding band and I am giving each of them an ID bracelet) during the ceremony. We are making this wedding as much about the 4 of us becoming a family as it is about me marrying their dad. Once we explained all of this to them they became excited again and asked us if we could have the wedding next week.
Blending families is never easy, I don't know if my story of my situation will be of any help. Best of luck to you!
My FH also has a daughter, who will be 3 at the time of the wedding. We haven't had any problems with her accepting me, and we will be incorporating her into the wedding! Hopefully if you incorporate his daughter into the wedding she will feel better about everything; explain everything to her; and let her know she isn't being left out. When you marry your FH your also becoming an instant family with his daughter!
