How to include your children in your wedding ceremony #FamilyTravel

“We wanted our children to remember and experience from an early age the connection and the love that we have for each other and know that they are a part of that love. We wanted them to hear our vows, see our happy tears and know that feeling. They came from our bond and our dedication to each other from when we first met, to our wedding.” – Selina + Daniel

Having your children as a part of your wedding ceremony is becoming more and more common. Couples who decided to have kids before getting married have an amazing opportunity to show their children their commitment to one another. Blended families can use the wedding day to bring the whole family together. Couples who choose to invest in their marriage with a vow renewal also often have the chance to have their kids witness their love and commitment.  Here are some of our favorite ways to include your children in your wedding ceremony or vow renewal.  Esepcially those families who travel for love and end up in some of the most amazing places together.  Travel is the only thing you can buy that will make you richer.  #FamilyTravel

Have your kids walk you down the aisle

Simple and classic, but oh so sweet. Having your children walk down the aisle with you, be it with mom or dad adds a super special touch.

“Holding my son’s hand between the trees as onlookers commented on how awesome it was he was walking me down. He didn’t know how important and meaningful it was, that’s what made it even more special. It was just him holding his mommy’s hand, it wasn’t until everyone commented he got nervous, it was very sweet.” – Selina

Scheila and Andre’s wedding was about so much more than the  bride and groom walking down the aisle. All eyes were on their daughter Laura.

“We met 15 years ago. This party is to celebrate this union. We have a daughter four years old. She’s beautiful, but she still can not walk herself (she is physically disabled). Our daughter Laura is the center of the whole family.” – Scheila

Make your kids your ring bearers and flower girls

Flower girl and ring bearer roles are traditional and super cute roles for kids. There is something super special about your child handing you your wedding ring though ;)

Write vows for your children or your children write vows too!

We love Cassie and Clay’s wedding vows and Clay absolutely stole the show with his special vows for Cassie’s daughter Kiley. What better way to include children in your wedding than to make special promises to them too!

“When I met Momma I knew that she had a little girl at home.  What I didn’t know is how big of an impact you would have on my life.  You are the sweetest and most loving little girl I have ever met.  I promise to always love you, take care of you, and help you grow into the great woman that I know you’ll become. ” – Clay’s vows

Cori sums up up perfectly why she wanted to make sure her step-sons understood her commitment to them :)

“When Dax and I chose to get married, we knew we were becoming much more than a couple, we were creating a family. This role of a step-parent, picking up a life that was begun many years before you, and without you, can be a challenging one. I wanted Dax’s two sons to understand that I was making a commitment to them, as well as to their father. Though I may not have always been there, I would be always be there now.” – Cori

Involve your children in your unity ceremony

Kids young and old can take part in your unity ceremony. We especially loved the sand ceremony at Ellie and Hazen’s wedding. Hazen’s 3 adult sons helped the couple’s baby pour sand in there unity ceremony – ultimate family love!

Brandy and Troy had their 3 kids be part of their sand ceremony.

Your children can be a (symbolic) witness

Some officiants will let your children sign or even handprint your marriage certificate. They don’t count as a legal witness if they are not of age but it’s a beautiful symbolic gesture.

Have your kids make a speech at your wedding

It’s amazing how even very little kids step up to the mic and make the simplest and most moving speeches of the day. Having a trusted relative with them to hold their hand for the very little ones is a nice support and even just a few short, impromptu words mean the world.

Have a Vow Renewal with your Kids!

A vow renewal is an amazing investment in your relationship and can be powerful, with or without your kids. If you do decide to include your children in your vow renewal it’s a beautiful way to reinforce your family love and togetherness.

“We wanted them to remember and experience from an early age the connection and the love that we have for each other and know that they are a part of that love. We wanted them to hear our vows, see our happy tears and know that feeling. They came from our bond and our dedication to each other from when we first met, to our wedding.” – Selina + Daniel

Have your kids up there with you!

Including your kids in your “couples portrait session” is a beautiful idea. You can also choose to have their kids front and center with you in your ceremony.Sammy and Nick had their children organically become part of their ceremony! How can you resist 2 adorable twins who just want to be with mom and day. We LOVE that Sammy and Nick ended up exiting their ceremony each holding a twin – even though that was not “in the plan.”

“Ahh the twins!  To be honest, I could not have imagined a better way to say my vows than with one of them in my arms. They are my identity now, and the very reason why we love each other so much. I know some people were nervous when all the kids were starting to fuss about, but those wild spirits are the loves of our life and we wouldn’t have it any other way!” – Sammy


In the end your wedding day should reflect you! Adults only weddings may be a thing but kids at weddings always add a special touch. If you need more convincing take a look at some of our fave photos of cute kids at weddings
