How To Include Several Parents in the Wedding??
Posted 07 February 2010 - 02:41 PM
I will for sure have my dad walk me down the aisle. I am torn about whether to ask my step-dad to walk me as well, or my mom. My sister got married in 2007 and had both my dad and step-dad walk her, so I feel like I should do this as well, but also like the idea of my mom.
We would like to have a sand ceremony and have our mothers pour the sand. So now we still have not included my fiance's dad, or either of our step-mothers. Would it be weird to have all 8 of our parents pour a little sand? Or does anyone have any other ideas on how we could include everyone??
We are not religious so we won't have any readings from the bible or anything like that. Any other ideas are welcome!

Before the ceremony, everyone will arrive and sit down except for the parents and the wedding party. Then we are going to have our parents walk up the aisle first, each with a jar/vile of sand. Each person on my side will have one colour and each person on my fiance's side will have another colour. My parents will pour their sand into my jar and his into his jar, and then sit down. Then I will have my Dad and my Step Dad walk me up the aisle and they will get to pour the sand too. Then during the ceremony my fiance (or hubby maybe at that point!) will pour into the large jar. This lets all of our parents be part of the sand ceremony and feel included, without having to have 8 people get up during the middle of the ceremony.

Step dad- said grace
Mom and dad - came and gave me a hug after I walked up.
Step mom is shy, and hates being in front of people but I would have had her do a reading.
