I think that sounds nice, and that really is enough.  I went to a wedding once where the bride had a daughter around 10.  The groom said vows to her and gave her a ring too.  While, it was sweet, it made me very uncomfortable. 

I have three children (5, 3, 2) and my girls tell everyone they are going to be bridesmaids.  I have a feeling they will all want to stand with us, but if they don’t want to it’s no big deal.

I attended a wedding where they included the two children in the sand ceremony. They used 4 different colors of sand  to symbolize the blending of the new family.

I planned a wedding where there was a 6 year old daughter and a 9 year old son. She was a flower girl and the son walked the the mob and the mog in and then presented them with flowers out of a basket that was sitting at the front of the altar before the ceremony started. Everyone awed and they both felt that they had very important jobs without it being too much.
