Brides with Kids/Stepkids

great thread! Fi and I have 2 young daughters-ages 2 and 4. We decided to buy them little wedding rings as well, and present them duringt the ceremony, so the 4 of us are getting married to each other. Since mya is only 2, we are putting her ring on a necklace for her. We are not doing the sand ceremony, so I thought this was a nice alternative. the rings are something that can grow with the girls, and they can wear their rings just like mommy and daddy.

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...
So glad to see this thread. I, too have a son, he is going to be 8 when we get married and I'm wondering what to give him since my FI has 3 daughters and girls are easy with jewelry.

I'm having all 3 girls as junior bridesmaids, my son is going to walk me down the aisle (since this is my second wedding) and they will stand up there with us and do a sand ceremony. We are going to incorporate them into the vows as well. Our family will be the only wedding party.

I have a son 18, a daughter 14 and he has two son 14 and 12. We have decided that this would be an adults only event, as most of our daily life is spent taking care of them and driving them to sports 7 days a week. I thought we were being selfish but my 18 year old said that this is our time and we should be able to focus on us for a change. I was very greatful for his words of comfort. We will be doing the sand ceremony with the children when we return.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
