If you have a unity symbol (like a candle or sand pouring) you can do it with three instead of two so you are all included

I was at an outdoor wedding a little while ago that was not at a beach and they did the sand pouring unity symbol. It looked really nice. You can get sand to match your colors. I think that would be a really sweet way to incorporate your daughter. Kinda like a way of symbolically coming together as a family.

We did a salt ceremony. We used three vials of salt, one with each of our initials. We combined them all to one during the ceremony. And she was also a flower girl!
The salt ceremony is a promise that you can’t take back, bc if you do take it back then you would have to seperate only your grains of salt from the jar, which is impossible.
You could do some sort of unity ceremony, or even just have her stand with you guys or exit with you.

At the chapel we got married at, they offered a family medallion ceremony. We don’t have kids so I didn’t really look into it but here’s some info I found on google:

I have 3 boys and my husband has 1 daughter, were going to put fishes in a bowl, instead of the sand thing

I have a future step daughter who just turned 7 this week. She’s going to be our flower girl, She’s a little on the shy side, so we are giving her the option of sitting down with her grandparents after walking the aisle. I gave a lot of though to including her in the ceremony, but after Fiance and talked we didn’t think she would care/want to. She is happy and feels included with the flower girl position.
I really like the idea of her exiting with us, I think that picture is adorable
