blending 2 families..........any ideas on how to recognize this during the ceremony?

Hello there!


My love has 2 teenagers and I have a 4 year old.  We want to involve the union of our families in the ceremony with a small event of some sort. We want our children recognized in some special way. I have heard the sand idea and while I love it, I think it is better suited for beach weddings.  We are in the mountains of WV. :-)  I have heard of people doing unity candles and just eliminating the mothers.......help?  any ideas appreciated!

You can always go with a gift during the ceremony and also include them into the wedding party.. There are a lot of possiblitys that you can find to include all of them into your special day <3

I do like the rose idea....but roses die and I would like a nice keepsake......should i opt for fake ones?  I never saw the "family unity candle until now.  I think it could be a nice DIY option as the ones ive seen online Im not crazy about.  Im just getting to crunch time and wanting to limit spending money on anything I don't "love" the look of especially if I can make it.  Such GREAT ideas.  I'm loving PW!
