- Wedding: March 2013
I am divorced. I have been a single parent since my youngest son was 4 months old and i met my fiance when my boys were 2 yrs and 4 yrs old, they will be 4 yrs and 6 yrs old when we get married. M ex husband moved back to his home country for a year and still does not live in our same state and doesn’t see his children but 2 per year; therefore my fiance has stepped up and filled the role of being the father to my children and unfortunately my fiance has infertility issues so is excited to have a ready made family of his dreams.
So for the wedding ceremony we really need to have a short ceremony (less that 1 hour..prefer 30 minutes) since we had to adjust our plans and rush over to the reception.
I am trying to think of an order of ceremony that allows us to say our vows, and still incorporate a family medallion cermony after we say our vows. I’m not even sure how to transition from saying our vows to bringing the boys up for the family cermony.
Our boys are still pretty young. I wonder what would be a good symbolic piece to give them to represent the family joining together. I know people give keychains and necklaces, but I would have to keep them for my boys since they are too irresponsible to keep up with them.
If any other blended families have experience with this type of thing or want to share their order of ceremony please share
