incorporating children from previous relationships/marriages into your wedding?
i don’t really have a father in my life so i am having my son, who will be almost 5, walk me down the isle and “give” me away with my mom.
any thoughts on this would great! 🙂
eta: he will be the only one walking me down but when the officiant asks “who gives this woman to this man?” they will both say “we do”.

I can’t speak from personal experience, but I think the idea of having your son (and mother) give you away is great! SO cute. I’ve also seen weddings where children are included in the ceremony — a part where the new parent and bio parent both pledge to be there for them. The wedding is really about the three of you becoming a family, isn’t it? 🙂

My stepdaughter asked if she could be a bridesmaid because she’s “bored of” being a flower girl, because she’s done it “tons of times” (twice). She is a firecracker. I’ve gotten some attitude that 7 is too young to be a JBM but her role is the same as a flower girl so I don’t see what the big deal is. And she’s really proud of herself so that’s enough for me. I’m just so excited she’ll be standing up there with me, she doesn’t understand now because she’s too young but it means so much to me.

exactly. he’s been such a wonderful father to him from day one of our relationship. my son even calls him dad (his own choice). we also have a 3 month old daughter together and he doesn’t show any favoritism. he loves them both equally:)
i think that is so great! she will officially be becoming your daughter that day and why not let the world know how much she means to you? i love that she’s a “fire cracker”. haha. you seem like you guys get along great.
