I saw a really cute idea on Four Weddings once:

A woman was marrying a man who had a 7 year old daughter, and after the couple exchanged rings and vows, the daughter stepped up between them and the couple read “vows” to her. Then they gave her a necklace that was from both of them to symbolize the 3 becoming a family.

Obviously you could change it a little since (I’m assuming) your daughter is the product of you and your fiance. You could just tell her how much you love her, how much fun you’ve had raising her so far and how much you look forward to continuing to be a family, etc. Then maybe give her a bracelet or something since she is so young. Maybe a piece of jewelery that’s geared towards kids? And then maybe replace it with a nicer, more mature piece on, like, her 14 birthday or something?

 I don’t know. I’m sentimental and sappy but I liked it! lol.

But I think making her a part of the vows would be awesome.

I just went to a wedding where the bride and groom and the groom’s kids said vows to each other as a new family. I thought it was very touching and sweet.

At my cousin’s wedding they did a sand ceremony instead of a unity candle and all 3 of them – the bride, the groom, and the child – had a vase of sand to pour.  Probably safer than giving a 3 year old a lit candle LOL.
