Children and Second Marriages

Including your child in the wedding ceremony is extremely important in second marriages as it helps the child/children feel as if they are part of the new family.

Gift Presentation BSL

A nice touch is to present the child with a gift just after your vows are completed, and when you present this gift, you each can make a vow to the child pledging your support and encouragement.   Let the child know that you want to create a new family together where everyone loves honors and protects one another.

Sand Ceremony BSL

Addional ways to include children is through the sand ceremony where each member of the family has different color sand or perhaps a butterfly release if the weather permits.
