Incorporating future step children into ceremony...need help!

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I was having the same issues and finally decided to include them in the wording on the wedding invitations and I will be giving them family medallions that I found on line. My children are 7 and 9 or they actually like the thought of having jewelry :)

Can i ask what the wording you used is? My FI has a 10 year old daughter and I would like to make her part of the ceremony as well. I like the sand idea, but FI has never wanted to do the sand ceremony or unity candle. What kind of family medallions are you using? Is it a type of necklace?

Hi

 

I found a bunch of useful information on "I Do! Take Two" they have all types of medallions that come in pins, necklaces and bracelets. Both my children like the jewelry idea so I went with it.

 

For the invitations- I got that on line also and It was basically Our names along with my kids names invite you to celebrate not only our wedding but the start of our new family. Something like that - I tried to find the site again but can't find it! typical me. I will write PM you the whole thing when I get home and from work. I can't believe I just finished my invitations a month ago and can't remember what we wrote :(

 

Bye

My fiance and i have just started the planning thing and he has a 9 year old that loves the spotlight, but would hate to actually have to read something or speak out loud. We have been struggling to find something for her in the ceremony the family medallion thing is awesome...

 

i think she will be too old/big to be a flower girl and we have some younger nieces...we wont have a ring bearer...she likes the idea of being "the presenter of the rings"

 

thanks for the ideas...

we had originally wanted only a MOH and BM standing with us, but because I have 2 sons, that are 10 and 12, I decided to also incorporate my 2 female cousins that are 10 and 13. I assigned the boys as jr groomsmen, and the girls as jr bridesmaids. when the girls asked why they were 'jr' I told them jr's didn't have to spend as much money as sr bridesmaids. they like that answer.

FI's 11 year old daughter we are trying to include. Wanted to the sand ceremony, but since we are doing a traditional catholic ceremony, they do not do the sand ceremony. Back to the drawing board...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
