My future hubby has a 5 year old daughter, and I also have a 5 year old son. They are also our flower girl and ring bearer. We want to have something special in our ceremony to signify or do something that symbolizes the unity of our families. Any idea would be great!

We’re not a blended family, but having the two families that we came from symbolically united is important to us. We are doing our unity candle ceremony a little different. We’re having 5 candles, two pillars on either side, then the taper, then the tall pillar. The two outside ones are our “family candles”. You and your son could light one, your FI and his daughter could light the other one. Then you take the tapers (your personal candle) and light it from your “family candles” and then light the middle unity candle. I thought it was a little different and added a little more.
