Not your first wedding? It can be a very freeing process. This isn’t your parents’ wedding, (although your kids might think it’s theirs..:) Perhaps this is the day you always wanted but never had. Either way, it’s easier because you have a stronger sense of who you are and the ability to say “no” to the things that don’t matter.
And chances are, what matters most are the people. A day with the people who you simply couldn’t live without…a day of enjoyment and gratitude. Of the sheer pleasure of seeing them all together, and celebrating love. (and maybe eating cupcakes..:)
You’ve been Together Quite a While
So your wedding day is just as much about the wake behind you as it is about the horizon out in front. You’ve probably got some awesome stories (that you’ve even forgotten) and building your ceremony will help you reminisce along the way, and allow you and the people who love you to savour what you’ve created over the years you’ve been together.
Weddings with Kids
You aren’t coming to the altar alone. And there’s something very powerful about acknowledging that. After all, there’s a new family unit forming as of your marriage. Marking that (and there are a myriad of ways you can) can be remarkable and memorable for all of you.

Oh I hate that term! But you know what I mean (I promise not to use the term “Zoomer” in your ceremony (unless you ask for it). Life’s a bit more complicated now, with kids (and even grandkids). The thought of everyone coming together, of blending together into one family (for not just that one day but forever) is big. Perhaps not easy, but big.
Weddings After Loss
If your kids are adults, you may well be dealing with memories and residual stuff. Some sadness mixed in with the sheer joy of finding love anew. It needs be be embraced, handled with tender care. And in some cases, acknowledged with gratitude.
