Badnesa49r:  My stepkids will be 8, 8, and 11 on our wedding date.  So I would love to hear some other ideas as well.  There is a blended family medallion.


Maybe you can give each of them a piece of jewelry that features a charm that embodies something that you enjoy doing together or a cherished event that you shared (like soccer, dance, a special trip)?  Or, if they are sentimental you could give them a picture of you with each individual child and a heartfelt letter on the back.  My stepdaughter is really sentimental… I recently found a note that I wrote her 2 years ago next to her bed.  She says she likes to read it sometimes 🙂  

I did some research early in the process and saw several ideas, but none of them felt really authentic.  I really like the thumbprint guestbook idea and I’m thinking about coming up with some words that can be said to recognize that we are “officially” becoming a family and all five of us acknowledge it by placing our thumbprint on a canvas that can be displayed in our home.

Badnesa49r:  I have seen other families do this– what if you each wore a stering silver bracelet– something very simple for everyday wear, and gave it to them at the wedding.  Not chains– but more like bands.
