Involving Our Children- Unique Ideas?

Recommended Posts

Hi all


So I have 7 yr old twin boys from my first marriage, and my FI has a 14 yr old son from a previous relationship. I want to involve them in the ceremony- but want to do it in a unique way. My boys will be walking me down the aisle... But my FI's son is not interested in standing up and being a groomsman. So whatever we do, we will need to call up FI's son mid-ceremony since he doesn't want to stand at the altar (ahhh 14 yr olds!!) I still want to include all 3 boys somehow... But want to do something unique.


I am NOT interested in doing a sand ceremony.... So looking for other ideas along the same idea. Since it's a beach wedding I don't think a unity candle will work either because of the wind...


Any ideas that are a bit more interesting? Something that actually is a part of the ceremony, not just a job like handing out programs etc. I want his son to feel special too- and for all three boys to feel like the ceremony is about all of us coming together.

I have a 7 year old and a 1 year old. We are honoring them by giving my oldest a watch and saying something special to him and my baby girl a piece of jewelry and saying words to her. Let your heart guide you and you will know how you want to involve them.

We are also having our family and guests ( small wedding) stand during ceremony in a circle around us, and a blessing of the rings from each member, we too are not doing a sand ceremony or anything. Good luck!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
