You could also have her do some sort of reading if she'd be comfortable with it.

Often marriage is viewed as the union of two persons. In reality, marriage is much broader. It is always a joining of families.
As part of the family nature of this marriage we recognize Children and their importance to this family.
Children you will have a share in this marriage, for your lives will be touched by the promises made by your mother and father today. Your participation will be needed to develop the bonds of this new family. We now ask you to promise that you will all join together to create a family of mutual help, respect and support.
We ask that you help to create a home and a way of life in which all of you may grow into the best people you can be. In this spirit, will you pledge to continue to grow together and honor this new family for all the days that follow?
The children respond: â€œWe will.â€
Groom and Bride, as you give yourselves to one another in love and loyalty, will you also promise always to keep room in your new life together for Children? Will you commit yourselves to respect and honor them as individuals and members of this family? Will you pledge to cherish, encourage and tenderly care for them as long as they need you?
Couple responds: â€œWe will.â€
As a symbol of the two families joined as one today, a special gift will now be presented to each of you. As you receive your token of family unity, always remember the love that has brought all of you together and that will guide you and nurture you in the years ahead.
(Give medallions to children)
It is my pleasure to present to you Groom and Bride in their new relationship as husband and wife and their children Children.
We will be using these vows....or something similar.

As far as where she will sit- that is a very good question. I haven't even started to think about where people will sit! LOL!
