I have twin girls who will be five at the time of our wedding. They will be our flower girls 🙂 They are definitely excited about the wedding.. and help me pick out dresses, little decor items, shoes, etc. (They are little fashionistas, hehe)
I am starting to feel like, though, that we’re not doing enough to include them in the wedding… when we all go get ready with the bridesmaids, they of course will be with me and will get their hair/”makeup” done too, and get dressed with me.
What else can we do to include them more? The unity sand looks like a cute idea where all four of us would pour sand. Should they sit with us at the head table? We aren’t planning on a head table for all of the bridal party, but more of a sweetheart table.
Any ideas? Thanks 🙂

Maybe you could have a special dance with them? Like a father daughter/mommy daughter dance and switch daughters half way through?

My cousin got married last year, she has a daughter (age 6 at the time) from a previous relationship, and he has a daughter (age 7 at the time) from a previous relationship. They did unity sand, where she and her husband had white sand and the daughters had pink sand, and alternated…. it looked beautiful and was so touching to signify bringing together the WHOLE family, and not just husband and wife!
Also, they had their “first dance” song which led into the song “In My Daughter’s Eyes” where the girls came out and danced with them (well, danced on their feet!). It was adorable, and I don’t think there was a single dry eye in the venue! 🙂
As far as seating, my cousin and her husband had a sweetheart table. The girls had seats there just in case, but didn’t actually sit there at all… they spent the night running around, and when they sat, it was at the table with my cousin’s mother and two sisters (so her daughter’s grandmother and aunts).. But really, they spent the night running around everywhere!

@eliseemma: my kids are in the wedding party and will be at the head table. ask them what else they want to be in on, they probably are already feeling very included.
