Teens make nice junior ushers and junior bridesmaids. Very young daughters can, of course, be flower girls, and little boys, ring bearers or pages. Conversely, ifrepparttar 144397 ceremony is to be small orrepparttar 144398 ages ofrepparttar 144399 children would make them unsuitable for these roles, you might simply ask them to accompany you downrepparttar 144400 isle, or meet you atrepparttar 144401 altar.

Children do not always welcomerepparttar 144402 opportunity to participate in wedding ceremonies. If you children seem unwilling to play a role inrepparttar 144403 ceremony, you should respect their feelings. Incidentally, if you share custody with your ex-husband, let him know about plans to include your children inrepparttar 144404 ceremony.

Inviting your ex-husband and former in-laws

If you and your former in-laws are still on good terms, you may want to invite them. However, you are under no obligation to do so. Consider this as nothing more than a formality since they would not be expected to accept.

Rarely would an ex-spouse be invited torepparttar 144405 ceremony, even ifrepparttar 144406 two of you have remained friends. Think about it. Inviting your ex-spouse torepparttar 144407 ceremony leaves him with only two choices, neither of which would be welcomed: accepting and feeling bad or declining and looking bad.

A more sensible and considerate approach would be to invite him to a private dinner, perhaps at your home, afterrepparttar 144408 ceremony and honeymoon.
