Hi Kimmy!  Welcome to Weddingbee   Smile

What if you did something that incorporated you, FI’s and your daughter’s handprints? It could be the screened background on the STD’s and invites, and then the details could be printed over it.   You could probably even incorporate that visual theme into lots of other wedding items….programs, signage, thank you cards — maybe even the cake!

I’ll do a quick web search to see if there is anything I can find that visualizes this idea….back soon!  Smile

OK this is the closest I could find, from cardgallery.co.uk:


Imagine though that there are three handprints, in your wedding colors perhaps; yours, baby’s and FI’s and they occupy most of the space on the card but are screened back so they don’t interfere with readability of the print on the card. That’s what I was thinking might be nice. 

If you could get the handprints onto a page I’m sure a printer could modify as needed and reproduce — Kinko’s could probably help you do it if you wanted to DIY your invites.  

Hope this helps!

  • Wedding: December 2009

Hi, Kimmy

Me and my fiance have a daughter also and we are getting married on December, our wedding is going to be intimate for about 60 guests (we agreed not to invite someone we wouldn´t invite to our birthdays) and we are also including traditional and not traditional, mostly the ceremony is traditional, even my dad is taking me to the altar just because I still want to give him that honor!


We are including our daughter in our e-pics, wedding website and in the about us insert on the invitations with a pretty B&W picture of the three of us, she is also going to be our flower girl and my fiance will pick her up in his arms at the end of the ceremony and she will go down the aisle with us, we also plan to include her some how on our first dance or in the second. We are going for a balanced way to include her, but still have our moment just the two of us. 

It has been the best experience ever, even though she is only 2 1/2 years old, she picked out her own flower girl dress and is really excited about trowing the flowers, she practices every time she hears a violin.

I wish you the best at your wedding, like us you guys could choose not to get married but it is great that you are!
