Could you have her be an additional flower girl?

When my mother married my stepfather, I was her Maid/Matron of Honor. 🙂 She had only children in the wedding {7} and as her only child, I felt very special. Of course, had she just not married my craphead stepfather, I would have felt better about everything. LOL.

My now 4 year old stepson was my husband’s best man.  He walked down the aisle with my sis, who was the Maid of Honor. He looked adorable in his little suit! It was so cute.

Being a step daughter myself, my advice is to ask the 8 year old what she would like. If she wants a ceremony then so be it. If she wants to be a flower girl so be it. I would ask her what she wants to do.

I was much older in my early 20s and us kids were completely forgotten about. That was not cool.

Now I have come full circle and he has an 11 year old daughter and I’m unsure how involved I want her. I already know that she expects to be a junior bridesmaid but I’m not sure if I want that even. It is a very difficult situation for he and I right now but we’ll get through it.

My boys are going to escort me down the aisle at our wedding and FI’s children are going to be our junior attendants.

I totally understand you wanting o include your duaghter in a more special way. I think if she wants to learn to play the bridal march on the piano, it can’t help. and if she doesnt’ feel comfortable with it when the days comes, no pressure, have a backup plan. 😉

I have and 11 yr old and 7 yr old. Actually they’ll be 12 and 8 by the wedding though. Whew! The little one will be the ring bearer and the older is a jr. Groomsmen, but I also just wanted to include them a little more. I have not ran this by the officiant yet, so I am not sure if we can do this, but my thought was to include them in the unity candle ceremony. I want to have 4 tapers instead of just 2 and have all of us join together as one family. It is really important to us that they realize that this isn’t just about me and Fiance but about all of us coming together as a one family unit.
