My fiance and I are planning our wedding and we would love to include my 6 year old from a previous marriage in the ceremony. My fiance wants to give her a necklace and say some words to her. We are planning on doing this at the end of the ceremony after we say our own vows. I'm wondering if anyone here has done something similar and has any suggestions on wording?
When my DH and I got married I did something like this with my two step sons. However, we did it with a sand ceremony and we had the boys come up and the officiant read the history and meaning of the sand ceremony. We have the boys their color with their dad and I had my own color and it was about how we were blending together to make a family. "once the sand has mingled it is impossible to separate." I felt like it was incredibly important for my SSs to be acknowledged and that they are a part of our family no matter what
Heyy. Congratulations on your wedding first of all and I absolutely love the idea ofincluding the 6 year old in the ceremony. I think its really sweet and thoughtful of your fiance to want to gift her something. My friend implemented the very same idea at her wedding and her husband also wrote a few vows for thr daughter which were worded like, "I promise to attend all your sports Day ceremonies".. 'I promise to share my fries with you" Basically cute and sweet stuff like this which the daughter found extremely sweet and heartwarming. I hope you guys find just the right words to say to each other and have a ceremony which is nothing short of magic and happiness. Be sure to document all of it as it will be one memorable wedding. Cheers and Congrats again.
