I like when they call the children up and say a few words about them during the vows. The way i have seen it is that the B&G exchange vows and rings (while the children or standing there or call them up after) and then say a few words to them and give them a necklace or bracelet. That way they have a nice gift and something to remember the commitment you gave to not only their dad but to them to as a family.

Having them walk down the aisle is a very sweet touch!

My Son is 9 and my daughter is 8.  They will be walking me down the aisle.

FI is a newbie and has no children.  After our vows, FI will tell the children that though he wasn’t there for their first steps, he intends to be there for every step of their lives from now on.  (did I get that idea on WB?  Can’t remember.)  We are presenting each of them with a necklace to symbolize the new family.  Both necklaces have three circles, like the family medallion, though hers is dainty and his is boyish.  🙂

The four of us will be sitting together at the “sweetheart table” during the reception as well

I like the idea of them walking him down the aisle.  In my situation, my fiance’s 2 daughters will be my Jr. bridesmaids.  Additionally, they will be receiving a necklace (the family medallion) with 3 circles.  I’m not sure yet if we will give them these during the ceremony or alone with just the 4 of us. We will also mention them in our ceremony wording. They are at the age where they don’t want to be recognized too much…it’s not cool. haha.
