Vow Renewal Ideas

Renewing your wedding vows is a way of expressing to your spouse the undying love you still have for him/her and has become a time-honored tradition.  These ceremonies are meant to celebrate your relationship and reflect on the memories you’ve shared over the years.  Whether 5, 10, or 20 years, vow renewals are one of the most romantic gestures in the world!   It’s the perfect way to let your spouse know you’d choose them all over again.  Here are trendy ways you can celebrate your marriage and repeat the promise you made years ago when you said, “…to love, honor, and cherish forever”.

If you love to travel, make plans to renew your vows in a different state or country.  There are so many romantic destinations all over the world such as Paris, Italy, Hawaii, and many more!!  Most resorts come with packages so do your research and see who has the best deals to help you celebrate.  Travel to a destination every ten years and take turns choosing.  This will add excitement and keep you bonded while creating and sharing new experiences.

While traveling is great, it may prevent some family and close friends from being able to attend.  For those that prefer a more intimate setting, vamp up your backyard and invite everyone over.  Book a local church and have a small, yet sweet ceremony and reception.  Keeping it small and intimate will cut down on expenses and you’ll get to share your special day with the people you love most.

Many want to recreate their actual wedding day.  This can include inviting people from the original guest list, cutting into the same cake, dancing to your favorite playlist, serving the same food, and even booking the same venue.  The bride might want to wear the same jewelry and the original “something old, new, borrowed and blue”.  If you want to add a little something extra for your new wedding day, create your own wine or signature drink to serve at the reception.  Or perhaps add an engraving to parting gifts or napkins.  

Renewals bring a new excitement and eagerness to your marriage and reminds your spouse why you fell in love in the first place.
