Invite the children??

If you decide not to invite children, do not write it on your invites. Simply address the invite to the parents, omitting the children. Let word spread by mouth. 

What parts of the wedding can children be a part of?

*Junior Groomsmen/Bridesmaids/Ushers (ages 4 to 8)
*Ring Bearers (ages 4 to 8)
*Page/Train Bearer(s) (ages 6 to 9)--This English tradition usually is performed by two little boys who follow the bride down the aisle, carrying her long train. Feel free to have girl pages!
*Candle Kids (ages 9 to 12)

Alter Arrangements: Where do they stand?

Include children attendants in the altar line-up only if they are old enough to stand still comfortable for the duration of your ceremony. Otherwise, stand them behind you, in front of your older attendants, or have them sit with their parents. 

I have a child(ren) from a previous marriage/relationship. I want them to be included in my ceremony...any ideas?


  • Include them in the vows where they accept their new siblings or family.
  • Allow your child to escort you down the aisle and "give you away".
  • Allow them to read a poem, biblical verse, or prose pieces.

May these vows and this marriage be blessed. May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah. May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm. May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day a day in paradise. May this marriage be a sign of compassion, a seal of happiness here and hereafter. May this marriage have a fair face and a good name, an omen as welcome as the moon in a clear blue sky. I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage. – Jalalud’din Rumi Maryam and Matt were married on August 9, 2019 at The Olana Mansion.

The Attendants

http://www.zazzleweddings.com/Be-My-Bridesmaid.php   Your Attendants, or as they are commonly referred to as your Wedding Party, can be as large or as small as you like. Choosing your attendants may seem like a no brainer in the beginning. He pops the question, you say YES, you call everyone you know, and the next thing you know--you have 8 Bridesmaids! How did that happen?? It happened because your friends/family said, "I'm going to be in your wedding, right?" and you said, "of course!" It was not until three days later that you have realized how many people you invited into your wedding party. It is quite common to feel obligated to have certain people in your wedding (even if you are not close to them). However, it is your (and his) day so you should surround yourselves with people who are supportive, loving, and genuinely happy for you. Some of those described may be friends instead of family and that is okay. Choosing Your Wedding Party Think a
