My idea for presenting our rings...

Recommended Posts

JennaLynn, that is such a touching idea to incorporate your little one into the ceremony, and I think Amanda's idea of using a necklace big enough to slip off her neck without undoing the clasp is a fantastic suggestion.

 

I am also not having a bridal party, so I can understand why you are so focused on making sure that your sister and daughter still feel special and involved. Bless your heart, and I hope everything goes smoothly and all parties are pleased! wink.gif

I really like your idea. My niece will be almost 2 1/2 years at the time of our wedding. We had already planned on her being the flow girl, but carrying the rings also is such a cute touch. I think I will have to borrow this one. Thanks for sharing!

My sister and brother in law did this at their wedding. It was really cute and my niece felt really happy to be a part of it. She was about 5 at the time so it was maybe a bit easier. They actually purchased a necklace with a charm on it that they then turned around and presented it to her as part of their vows. It was really nice :)

Ladies, I truly appreciate all of your feedback on this :) I especially loved reading your additional thoughts on ways to help this go more smoothly & TamaraDan thank you for sharing your sister's experience with doing this for her ceremony...I just adore the idea of presenting the charm necklace to her as a gift/part of their vows...we are going to have to start shopping around for a beautiful necklace our little angel can have for a lifetime...she is a vital member of our little family! wink.gif

 

I am SO glad I found this forum...you have all been nothing short of helpful :)

I'm glad you like the idea :) It really made the ceremony something special and a little different expecially for my niece. Good luck with finding a necklace for your little girl!

She is already walking around & getting really good at it, fast. I was brainstorming a while ago about ways to include her, considering her young age...

I was thinking we could find a chain necklace & put our rings on it & have her wearing it around her neck. We could have her walk down the aisle to us (with the help of my younger sister--she's 11) I could then have my sister remove the necklace from our daughter's neck & have her give us the rings.

I don't know...? Does this seem corny? Or cute? I was thinking it could be a creative way to incorporate our daughter into our ceremony & also let my (only) sister play a role---she's too young to be an actual MOH...so, what do you ladies think?

Obviously, we'd make sure my sister or someone else is watching Sienna the whole time with the necklace on, so she doesn't end up strangling herself or anything horrific like that!
I think this idea is so cute! Go for it!! your daughter and sister will love those pics when they get older!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
