This is both my fiance's and my 2nd wedding. We have 5 kids together and want them to be our wedding party. My 3 boys standing by me and his 2 boys by him. Is this a good idea? Do you think this is wierd or tacky? Any suggestions will help. Thanks!

I don't think it's tacky at all! I think the most important thing to remember is that you're making a commitment to each other, and your family is all part of that. Especially your boys. I think you two should get <a href="http://www.staatsawards.com/products.cfm?catID=4">award plaques</a> or something for wanting to begin a new phase of life.

Good food plus a Good Band= successful event
Your situation is very similar to ours... My fiance and I are planning a wedding this fall. We're doing something small being a second wedding for both of us and we're planning on having the children in our wedding as well.. his daughter and son, and my son. I don't think it's tacky at all! Marriage is ALL ABOUT FAMILY and you will have your family right there with you every step through the day. I think it's the BEST and I can't wait for our special day!
I feel this is a wonderful idea to incorporate your children into this special occasion. There is a great resource (The Family Medallion) that you may find helpful.

Seeking outside venue in the Denver area for a Polynesian Dinner show...wanting to have the event catered.
I love the idea of family getting incorperated in the ceremony. Your kids are important to both of you and making the wedding a family event is important!
i was recently at a wedding that had the children take part in the sand ceremony it was really nicely done and made them all feel like they were part of the family
I recently remarried and our kids made up our wedding party as well. My husband's son stood by him and my 2 daughters stood by me. I think it's a wonderful idea - it makes the kids realize how big a role they are playing in the event and how important they are to each of you. I don't think it's tacky at all!
I wish you and your fiance all the best!

As a professional DJ for over 30 years I have booked over 1000+ weddings and witnessed everything you could imagine and this is all too common..........I would suggest to forget the traditional ceremony as no matter what you do someone's feelings will be hurt......concentrate on making the reception fun & comfortable for all which will be tough enough as the same goes for the formal dances!
Never tacky! Bringing two families together makes such a beautiful wedding ceremony. Best wishes to you all.
You are celebrating your new life together as a family. Don't worry about it being tacky (which it is not). This is a great way to show that you are ALL one beautiful family now.
as a wedding photographer i think it would be great... it will give your photographer a chance to get good shots.... ive seen this done at a few weddings in the past... its beautiful.
I think it's a wonderful way to blend two families into one. I wish you all the best, Janice Baldridge
