My fiance has two girls. We are doing a small, quite, very intimate wedding with just us and the two girls (destination wedding). Since it's just the four of us the girls will be my bridesmaids. We got them beautiful dresses they picked out. They are so excited!
) I'd like to incorporate them in the "vows" in someway but am not sure how to do it. I feel like I have to tread kind of lightly out of respect as their mother passed away several years ago. While I know they miss her, I'm fortunate that they are ecstatic about their dad and I getting married, but I want to be respectful as well. Any ideas? Any suggested text or where to get it to give to the officiant?
I'm also looking into gifts for the girls too. I'd like to get them a piece of jewlery but I'm having a hard time picking something out. I want them to feel like they can wear it now if they want, but be able to wear it later as well. THat's the big challenge because they are 9 and 11 so their taste will change and they are likely to grow out of child sized jewlery. Any ideas for a gift woul dbe appreciated.
