A couple of ideas:

Jr. Maid of Honor

Sand ceremony with the three of you.

Have Fiance give her a necklace during the ceremony to signify his commitment to her as her stepdad.

MM had his 18 year old son as best man.  He gave the toast and if I recall correctly it was “when I met retread bride I could see why my dad was happy after a long time of being unhappy. She makes him smile and laugh. Welcome to the family” pretty cool for a high school senior.

I wrote our ceremony & we all said vows together – they were standing up on the altar with us and we all held hands.  It was great!

You could write to sets of vows, one for you two and then a third shorter one you say together to vow to be a supportive family.

When my dad married my step mom they included my brothers and I in the wedding (Junior bridesmaid and ring bearers) and they had a special ceremony during the wedding where they gave us these “family medallion” necklaces that were made of three circles signifying their commitment to each other and us.

We have four combined- two his and two mine.  They are doing a sand unity ceremony with us and standing up as our witnesses.  We are also doing a family friendly wedding weekend, so they can be included in many of our pre and post wedding activities.

I have a 8 yo daughter and a 7 yo son from a previous relationship, and they are going to stand up there with us as flower girl and ring bearer.  Then, the officiant is having us say our vows to each other and then vows to our children.  Then, we will be giving them a necklace as a token to show our unity as a family… our commitment to them.  I think it’ll be a tear jerker.  🙂

The necklace I got my daughter is a pendant of a mom and a dad and 2 children.  I’ still haven’t gotten my son something… I’m struggling with what a good gift for a boy would be!

we are each brining in one daughter to our marriage so we already have 2 kids total. we had his daughter design the rsvp card cover (she drew all of us as a family, my heart melted) and my daughter drew the thank you cards (shes 2 so its more like scribbled then sais she was done) we are having a sand ceremony, the girls each have a part in the wedding (jr bridesmaid and a flower girl) they are both going to “mommys spa day” the day before where it will just be us 3 girls getting our nails done. they are just getting painted when im getting my acrylics and then the day of the wedding im taking the oldest with me to get her hair done. i made her promise not to cut it because the style she wants needs long hair. shes super excited.

i tried to include the girls (the oldest at least) into everything i could. i reminded her im not trying to replace her mom i just want to be like mom #2 like her step dad is dad #2 for her. i laughed when she said she would have 2 moms and 2 dads. shes excited about being a big sister to my daughter we just need to get them to share more often lol
