My FH has a son and daughter and so do I. Funny side note we both have a Sarah, and yes it gets confusing. I want to include the kids in our ceremony more than what we have. My son is a groomsman and my daughter is my maid of honor (my son will be 17 and daughter 12) and his daughter is the flower girl and son is the ring bearer (his daughter will be 10 and son will be 8). I've thought of the sand ceremony but I want to do a present for all of them that is similar but I don't know what to do . Are there other ways to incorporate them during the ceremony. I also have a daughter and son dance we will be doing with them for the reception. I know that it's our day but I want them to be included so they know they are important to us as well. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Could you do some kind of unity ceremony to symbolize the families coming together? Maybe sand?

    I've considered this but I also want to do some kind of gift as well. When my sister married my brother in law they gave all the girls a charm bracelet for theree family trips they always bought a charm for it. But since I have 2 boys and 2 girls I don't think that would work.

    A necklace with a symbol (if religious like a cross or St Christopher) that all can wear. Something that both girls and boys could wear or wear when they get older.

    Maybe you could do the sand ceremony into 5 glass containers. 1 big one for you guys/the family, 1 little one for each of the 4 kids to keep. You could get creative personalizing with different shaped containers, maybe even laser engraving or painting their names on their individual containers.

    Necklaces for the girls and cuff-links for the guys would be my pick. They can wear them even when they get older!

    Following bc we are blending families too.
    Our current plans: keeping my girls at the alter when we start vows. Dancing w the girls (a family dance? I have two daughters so not sure how this would work) as a first dance of sorts.

    With our daughters we will both dance with them. I promised my daughter the song god your mama and me but our idea is to start dancing with our own daughter and then in the middle ask to dance with the other's daughter. As for our sons we dont know what kind of song to dance too because neither wants to dance so I'm thinking of something silly that we can laugh and dance silly to for a good memory for them.

    Sand Ceremony.

    I went to a Wedding blending 8 kids.

    All of them walked around the Table pouring the Sand into the vessel, doing it as a family.
