Does anyone have any ideas how to include a child from a different relationship in the wedding? This is obviously a huge thing for her as well and she is old enough to be aware of what is going on. I’ve heard sand/rose ceremony but am really looking for a way to really spotlight her and involve her as a family. Thanks Bees!

I have seen things where the couple not only says their vows to eachother but also vows to the children to raise them as their own. It is pretty cool. Because, you aren’t just marrying the parent. You are marrying the child as well. (Figuratively of course)

Have you thought of having her as a junior bridesmaid maybe? My son is almost a teenager, I’m going to do the sand ceremony & also include him in that.. He doesn’t really “want” to be a Jr. Groomsman but mainly because he doesn’t want a lot of attention on him so I’m debating on having him as one anyway since it’ll mean a lot to me.

Can her future stepfather give her a necklace or piece of jewellry too? Say something to her during the ceremony and present it to her?

I don’t know what kind of ceremony you are having, but you could ask her to do a reading. I was a teenager when my mom remarried and I did a reading and was a bridesmaid.

The first thing that popped into my head was Junior Bridesmaid or Best Man. My niece is a little too old to be a flower girl (12) and she has been a flower girl so many times. I asked her if she wanted to be a junior Bridesmaid or Best Man and she is really excited. 🙂

My teenage daughter will be my Maid/Matron of Honor – I would definitely put her in a Bridesmaid or Best Man role IF she is comfortable doing so.
