4 Sweet Ways to Include Your Children in Your Wedding Ceremony

As a parent, the most important people in the world to you are your children. Unfortunately, the wedding planning process is rarely kid-friendly. From scouring endless location options for your wedding reception in Pennsylvania to hours spent deciding on flowers and centerpieces, it’s normal for children and even impatient teens to become fed up with the process. If you’re searching for ideas on how to get your little ones involved in your wedding planning, try incorporating one of our four ways to help kids feel more involved in your upcoming ceremony.

    • Start with a promise. Wedding vows don’t have to just be between the couples exchanging rings. More and more blended families are choosing to include their children in the ceremony and creating a special “vow” to cherish them as a part of their new family—a personal touch that will mean everything to a child starting life out with a new step-parent.
    • Let them walk down the aisle. Put your little ones first (literally) by allowing them to walk down the aisle as a flower girl, ring bearer, or by opening the ceremony with a handmade flag announcing the entrance of the bride! Older children can even act as bridesmaids or groomsmen!
    • Add the kids to the cake. Custom cake toppers are all the rage, but they don’t have to only feature the bride and groom! Consider commissioning a cake topper that features your entire blended family for a more personal touch.
    • Give them an official duty. Kids love to feel like they’re a major part of your wedding ceremony—and by assigning them an official “job,” they can be! Whether it’s presenting a speech, ushering guests to their seats, or even handing out reception gifts, let your little ones share your big day.
