Their (encore bride and grooms) nuptials don't merely unite two souls but three or four or more. And that's a challenge. A solution is the Family Medallion®," a piece of jewelry created by Roger Coleman, a chaplain in Kansas City, MO. The medallions have three interlocking circles meant to symbolize the family's new love. They're often presented along with the wedding bands as part of the formal ceremony. "The medallions are one small way of reinforcing families and making children feel included," says Coleman. Some couples who have used the medallions at their betrothals report that their kids don't want to take them off.
