Blended Family Wedding

The bride had one child from a previous relationship and the groom had two children from a previous relationship. This is what we call a blended or reconstructed family.

Many guests found it strange that both the Bride and the Groom had invited their ex-spouses to the wedding. Most believe that you should sever ties with exes or keep them at an absolute minimum. Fortunately, inviting your children parent to your wedding with the man or the woman you will now be passing the rest of your life with is arriving more often as split couples see the value of developing a sort of friendship, a co-parenting team, for their children’s well-being.

It is much better for children when they can feel that mum, dad, stepmom and stepdad all get along.

In this particular case, the bride and groom decided to highlight their unique family by giving each child a personalised key chain, with both the groom and bride’s name as well as the child’s name along with a special message:

“It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us family.”

Blended families are special and can be incredibly beautiful with a little effort from all parties.
