Yesterday on “Four Weddings” on TLC the wife-step mother to be had the mic and the daughter came over and she said some words to her about how shes excited for their journey together & friendship to grow – to share laughter and lend her a shoulder to cry on etc… but that daughter was maybe somewhere between 10-13 years old so possibly not as easy for a 3 year old. 

i think its great youre involving her though!

Our officiant had a couple of different options for us to choose from.  Maybe your officiant will have something you can use?  

Since my step kids are older, I think we’ll be including them in the sand ceremony.

I have seen ceremonies done with younger children where the kids received a necklace.

We’re going to do the sand ceremony too, although my son will be just over 3 years old and my FH’s son will be just over 9 when we do it.  My son may need some help but I can help him pour the sand in… Especially since it’s better than him running around with a candle.  Haha.

@Mrs.ChirpChirp:  I was about 7 when my mom & step dad got married. To involve my younger brother & I in the wedding, during the vows, my about-to-be step dad turned, went over to my brother & I, and gave us both cross necklaces. (If you’re not religious, you could use something like a heart pendant necklace). Then he went on and told us how we are also part of this new family & promised us he would love us just as much as he loved my mom. 15 years later and I still have the necklace & wear it daily. It was so nice to be included in the ceremony when most step children are overlooked. Hope this gives you a few ideas!!
