    Often time when we think of a wedding, we think of two people becoming husband and wife. However, many times it is much more than that. When the bride and/or groom have children from a previous marriage, the wedding ceremony can symbolize the coming together and blending of a new family. The ceremony becomes a celebration and proclamation of this new family. It is very important to the bride and groom that their children play a part in their ceremony.

But for couples who have lost a loved one, the occasion can be bittersweet. It is natural to want to honor these people in some way at your ceremony. But you might not be sure to include meaningful gestures without casting a dark cloud over your special day. You want to take a moment to remember these loved ones yet not detracting from the spirit of the day.
