A Family Wedding – A What?

A wedding is always exciting. A lot of planning and preparation go into action so that the wedding will be memorable meaningful and as one-of-a-kind as the marrying couple. Yet, each couple has consideration unique to them.

  • There are couples where both partners marry for the first time.
  • There are couples where one or both partners have been married before but have no children.
  • There are couples where one or both partners have been married before and have children.
  • And there are December couples who often have children and grandchildren.

This article is dedicated to couples that will have a “blended” family once they are married. That is, children will have a new parent and possibly new siblings.

Many, though not all marrying or re-marrying couples are looking for ways to integrate the children into the wedding ceremony and / or reception in such a way that it will become a Family Wedding.

Some people wonder why should a wedding not be dedicated to the bride and groom alone. Why should it not be “Their Day”?

There are two main reasons:
1. Children need reassurance. They need to know that they are welcome and wanted by both parents and new siblings.
2. Parents WANT their children not only to be an integral part of the wedding and        celebration, but to be excited about having a roll before and on the wedding day.

We at A-wedding Day are often asked to suggest ways to involve the children in their parent(s) wedding.

The following are ideas, implementation of which depends on the ages / abilities of the children and the degree of involvement the marrying couple wishes to dedicate to them.

Children must always feel that they are IMPORTANT especially now, when their parent is marrying a new life partner.



Plan your traditional or family
wedding in a stress-less fun way

Children who are old enough should be asked to put on their thinking caps and help with the wedding planning and preparations. Their input should always be taken into consideration and if possible acted upon. Children can:

  • Make recommendations ranging from wedding themes to color schemes,
  • Suggest favors and help make them,*
  • If they are capable of the task, help address envelops and / or stuff them.
  • If they drive they can run wedding related errands,
  • Help with pre-wedding parties and showers,
  • * Placing a specific number of colorful candies such as jelly beans, is a great teaching tool for the very young who can learn colors and counting.


It is also very important to make shopping for the wedding attire a special family affair.
