    I LOVE the idea of him walking you down the aisle! I was going to suggest a personal attendant, so he can be behind the scenes with you. That way you'll get to spend a lot of time with him on the day of the wedding and he feels like it's most important for you to have him by your side all day.

      I am in a similar situation but my FI has 2 boys, 13 & 14. He has two groomsmen and i have one bridesmaid and a man of honor. Yes this is going to be interesting!! Anywho, we have thought about having them walk me down the aisle, but my mom really wants to do that. So we have decided to have an odd number on his side. There will be 4 (including the two boys) on his side and then 2 on my side. We may split them up while we stand there, but honestly it is a unique wedding anyways...does it really matter?!?

          Are you having a sand ceremony? I ask because that could be another great way to involve him. My cousin just got married and he has a son from a previous relationship so he and his bride did the sand ceremony along with his son...each of them had a different color sand that they poured together into one vase as a symbol of their new family uniting and merging. There wasn't a dry eye in the place:) They did that in addition to having him walk down the aisle with the bridal party.

          You can do this with the unity candle too if you don't want a sand ceremony...
