My FI also has 2 boys and we are doing the same thing. The eldest (13) will be the best man and the youngest (cool.gif will be the ring bearer.
Assuming we stay for a 2nd week (which we're hoping to do) we'll be sending them home with family.

In regards to keeping them involved, I'm asking their opinions on colour combinations and cake and such. They are actually pretty good at this stuff!

Also, because the oldest will be classified as an adult he has to stay in a different room - on paper. Just try to find persons that are travelling as just couple/or single. on paper put the kid(s) in that room then switch back.

Cheers and happy planning

I think regardless of what "job" you give them, the kids will enjoy it as both you and your FI will. We don't have any kids of our own yet but have 6 nieces/nephews between the two of us. So we are including all of them as flower girls and ring bearers :)

I was really having trouble with the flow of the ceremony, and this site really helped. I'll post my script in a few days once it's finished. I really liked presenting the couple and then presenting the whole family. I thought that was really neat!

It seems like many people incorporate the children into the ceremony by having them take part in the sand ceremony.

 

I have a daughter who will be 16 when we get married. My fiance has been a big part of her life and considers himself her father. She will be my maid of honor and after we exchange our rings, we plan to give her a right-hand ring as well. my e-ring is yellow sapphire, so hers will have yellow sapphire in it as well. I will wear three rings to symbolize our family - e-ring and two bands, one for each my daughter and fiance. He wants her to have a piece of jewelry that connect her to us in the same way our rings connect us to each other.

We are having a small bridal party... my brother as my Man of Honor (instead of Maid of Honor), his brother as the Best Man, my 8-year old daughter and 11-year old goddaughter as junior bridesmaids. The little ones are happy enough with their dresses and being part of the ceremony. :-)

My daughter will be 12 when my FI and I get married next April. We choose Beaches Turks & Caicos. While my daughter will not be staying in the room with us (she will stay in my parents room) they do have several options for families.

 

We were going to do the sand ceremony but are going to hold off on that and do it at our AHR instead. Mainly because Beaches charges $100 for their kit (they will charge you $50 if you buy and bring your own kit). Besides, I don't want it to get messed up on the way back home either. so, we decided to do a Medallion Ceremony with my daughter. We will present her with a necklace of 3-rings to symbolize our new family. I originally saw this on line somewhere, but we are going to purchase a better quality at a jewelry store instead of the one online.

I love all the ideas! We decided to give each of our daughters a James Avery charm bracelet with a special sand dollar charm to remind them of the special day. We'll do a reading and presentation after we exchange rings. I wanted to do rings, but our girls (1, 4, 7, 9) are a little young and will outgrow them by the time they could keep up with them. I'll keep the bracelets for them while they're young and add charms for other special occasions, too.

 

Big question: I have one son who's five. Any ideas on what I could give him that would be special and keepsake worthy like the girls' charm bracelets? I just don't see him wearing jewelry and I can't think of anything special for him...

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
