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.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
