how are you including your step kids

Recommended Posts

I think we are going to do a sand ceremony as well to include his boys. We aren't having any attendants so a sand ceremony (or something like it) would include them.

Good thread!

Our children are the only ones in our wedding. All will be participating in the sand ceremony to blend our families. I like the idea of fiance giving the girls a necklace as a gift during the ceremony. Mini vows could be a nice touch but don't want to make the ceremony too long as guests sit in hot sun.

My two boys are walking me down the aisle (they will be 9) and my step son who will be 15 will likely stand up next to his dad as one of the groomsmen, but at this point he said he doesn't want to "stand up there for that long"... Teenage boys! Ugg... FI could care less if his son doesn't want to be a part of it- strange relationship... He will be dressed like the other guys in the wedding party and will be in all the photos etc... If he decides not to stand up and be a part of the actual ceremony- at least we tried. My boys however are excited!

@@kmk2016 I love that your sons are walking you down the aisle, it's a great way to include them. I have a 10 yr old step daughter and I want her to feel that she is an important part of our new family. I will have her as a junior bridesmaid, but I think I want her dress to be a different color than the BP so that she feels special. I want to take her shopping for the dress I really hope she feels special and included in the whole process.

@@kmk2016   It's not that long!!!  Teenagers forsure!

 

My twins will be the flower girl and ring bearer respectively.

My fiance doesn't have any kids, but treats mine like his own.

Well we just were told by my stepson (the one turning 15) that he is not interested in standing up in front of everyone and really isn't keen on being a part of the ceremony in any way...(he's happy we are getting married- but just uninterested in being a part of the "event".,, just wants to come and watch. Lol. So I'm going to push him past his comfort zone somewhat and make him do something that blends our family together but we will see what that is since my two will definitely be a part of it and I'm not changing that.

It's certainly tough with teenagers, especially boys (hehe)

 

My middle sister declined being a BM, which relieved me some to be honest, but I guess they have the right :(

 

Good luck and let us know what comes of it!

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
