Planning a second wedding often means the blending of two families. If you want to include your children in the wedding or otherwise make it clear that two families are coming together as one, consider the following quotes and readings. Add them to your wedding ceremony to demonstrate your love for one another and your excitement in bringing your families together.
“May they nurture their family with devotion, see their children grow in body, mind and spirit,
and come at last to the end of their lives with hearts content and in joyful anticipation of heaven.”--Church of England prayer book
"The secret to blending families is there is no secret. It’s scary and awesome and ragged and perfect and always changing. Love and laugh hard. Try again tomorrow. But that’s life advice, right?”--Mir Kamin
“Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.”--Unknown
“We’re all a little weird, and life’s a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”--Dr. Seuss
“Having a place to go is a home. Having someone to love is a family. Having both is a blessing.”-- Donna Hedges
"Lord, in your providence, you have provided the family as a place where people can experience love, learn important life lessons and find unequaled encouragement. May your design be reflected in this new family. I pray that you would unite and bind this family together; even in togetherness, may there be space to be individuals. Help each person to love, respect and encourage others within the family. May the care and hospitality within the family be extended to those outside; that others might see your presence.” -- Chelle, "Letters from the Heart: Prayer For A Blended Family"
