By Katie Gray

Music legend and superstar, Elton John, tied the knot this weekend with his longtime partner, David Furnish! The  duo got a civil partnership in 2005 and have been together for 21 years. They married in England, where same-sex marriage was recently legalized. According to, John said, “We’ll do it very quietly. But we will do it, and it will be a joyous occasion, and we will have our children [there]. For this legislation to come through is joyous, and we should celebrate it. We shouldn’t just say, ‘Oh well, we have a civil partnership; we’re not going to bother to get married’. We will get married.”

How do you incorporate your kids in your wedding?

Cupid’s Advice:

If you have children, you’ll no doubt want to include them in wedding festivities. Cupid has some ideas:

1. Tie the knot with family ties: When tying the knot, it’s wonderful to be able to include children in the celebrations! Whether that means your own children or children of family members, it’s a beautiful thing. Include the children in the wedding by simply inviting them to all of the events and festivities on the big day as well as the parties leading up to it. They’ll simply be happy they’re there with the adults.

2. Walk it out: A great way to involve kids in a wedding is by letting them be in the wedding party! Have them walk down the aisle as a flower girl, ring bearer, junior bridesmaid, or junior groomsmen. Let them hold the bride’s bouquet during the ceremony or have another kind of task to make them feel important.
