Bringing two families together after remarriage isn't always easy, but finding happiness and keeping the peace at home can absolutely be done. (Just take a look at the real stepfamilies featured in our Blended Family Friday series for proof.)

On Thursday, HuffPost Live host Alicia Menendez discussed finding that balance with a number of guests, including HuffPost Divorce bloggers Judy Osborne, Jodyne L. Speyer and Elizabeth Denham, who shared memories from her wedding day.

"The day we got married, we all went to beach to do it ... and as we left, my older stepdaughter, who's 14, said 'When we walk back through this door, we're going to be a family.'"
