My fiance and I are getting married in October at CSA. Our parents, siblings (all are married) and some of our closest friends are making the trip with us. Our dilemma is that we are very close to my nieces and nephews and they won't be able to make the trip. I know they are bummed about not being able to see our wedding and I want to do something to make them know how much they mean to us.

We are having a reception when we get back so we kind of wanted to somehow incorporate them into our evening to make them feel special. It will be decorated in a beach theme (as much as you can in Iowa!!!) so if someone has an idea of what we could do for them there we would appreciate it.

Another idea is maybe buying them something special while we are there and giving it to them at the reception. There are 6 of them, 4 girls and 2 boys, ranging from 12 years old to 2.

Any input will be greatly appreciated!!!! October 23rd can't come soon enough!
