Walking a little differently down that aisle...

This will be my second marriage, but this my first real wedding. I got married at 18 the first time and let everyone else run the show. I now have 3 daughters (they will be 8, 6, and 5) and I'm thinking of having them walk me down the aisle and give me away. What do you think?

    There's a second wedding board, you may want to ask there.  However, you may wish to avoid the term "real wedding" over there.  Any wedding that was legal was real.

    I think that it's sweet to include your children in the ceremony considering it's going to be a union of your families and your lives.

    I love when children are involved in the wedding, have you heard of a sand ceremony? There is a nice write up on WeddingLighthouse.com. If it were me, I would have the girls walk me down the aisle, without a second thought! I hope you have great wedding. :-)

    Awww I think that would be beautiful! I totally understand what you mean by this will be your first "real" wedding. You mean your first time Planning it yourself and having the whole ceremony and reception thing. I know you dont mean the other one was fake. Some people just take offense to little things like that. You should def have your girls walk you down, that will be beautiful! GL

    I have 2 little girls, one from a previous marriage and one that I adopted as a single mom. They are walking up the aisle with me and then will be seated. We will be presenting them with rings (on a necklace) later in the ceremony that include the same inscription as our wedding bands.   I am avoiding the term "giving away" because it's not so mucht that they are giving me away as they are getting a new dad. I am also making it clear that they are not flower girls- they are something more important than that- they are our children and a part of the family we are forming.GL!

    Thanks yellow_grace, I'll keep that in mind about the giving away, I like that. I got my girls necklaces as well, they say Je t'aime which is what I always tell them before they go to bed. As for the real wedding comment, that's my personal take on my event, not anyone elses. I fully understand the differences between a wedding and a marriage. We're all just trying to have a good time and make this whole wedding planning process a little easier and fun.
