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...
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.
