Do a sand ceremony. You, your husband, and each child will have a different color of sand and pour them into a common vase. The idea of it is to symbolize your new life together, each one was seperate before the wedding, and now as they are blended togther, they can never be separated back to how they used to be.

I love the sand idea.

I too am looking for ideas on how to incorporate my son (from a previous relationship) into our wedding. He will be 5 when we get married.

The sand is a great idea i think 🙂

Maybe in your vows mention that you promise to love them as well. That you are not only getting a husband when you get married but a family as well.

We are doing a family unity ceremony; after we say our vows together we are going to say vows to my FI’s daughter (she’s 15 and lives with us full time) We had a ring made for her with all of our birth stones in it, (makes it easy since we’re all born in the same month)

Groom and Bride , today as you have sealed your commitment to each other by the giving and receiving of rings, you too make a commitment to FI’s Daughter. We lovingly recognize the significant role that Selena plays in this marriage celebrated today.Groom and bride’s love forDaughter has no boundaries and they commit today to be the best parents they can be for her as she travels through the journey of life.
Daughter, would you please come over and join Bride and groom in a commitment to each other and your new beautiful, blended family.
Groom and bride, do you promise to be good role models, patient and loving with daughter. Do you promise to be caring, nurturing, and supportive parents and always encourage her. Will you always be her strength and provide unconditional emotional support when she needs it and always love Daughter unconditionally and forever.
Daughter do you promise to love, honour and respect your parents? Do you promise to be supportive and encourageGroom and bride’s new life together?
(I DO)
The ring is a circle… an ancient symbol of eternal love. This ring represents your family and your love for each other. In the giving of this ring, do you both pledge to Daughter your commitment to surround and support her with unconditional love as you all share in your new life together?
(We do) At this time, bride and groon place the ring on daughter’sfinger

Actually my Fiance and are going to include our children. When the minister ask who gives this woman, my children will say we do and the minister has agreed to ask who gives this man and his girls will say we do.


It makes them feel included and they love the idea

@LR2012:  We thought it was a good idea to include them. It also means that they can sit in the front row of the church and still stand up when the minister ask.
