|WHY HAVE A VOW RENEWAL?|
|There are as many reasons why a couple may choose to renew their wedding vows as there are couples. Here are a few!
|WHEN SHOULD YOU HAVE A VOW RENEWAL?|
|While some couples may have their renewal on an anniversary date, there are no rules here. You may have it whenever you like! Couples often choose a romantic time, like Valentine’s Day. Some couples have a one-time celebration, while others may create a tradition of a vow renewal every year or every fifth or tenth anniversary. Vow renewals are especially common for 25th and 50th wedding anniversaries, but you don’t have to wait until then!|
|HOW DO YOU HAVE A VOW RENEWAL?|
|There are very few rules for vow renewals, and there are many variations.
Generally renewal ceremonies are much simpler to plan than a wedding. First of all, it is a sentimental, not a legal, ceremony, so to renew your marriage vows you don’t need to get another marriage license. Secondly, many renewal ceremonies are intimate- just close family and friends or even just the two of you. A wedding party is unnecessary and not typical, although you certainly could have your original bridesmaids and groomsmen stand with you again if you would like. The location is often much simpler and more casual than the original wedding. And renewals are usually much less expensive than weddings!
On the other hand, a vow renewal may be as large and elaborate as you would like. If you’ve never had the wedding of your dreams, the bride might wear a white gown and veil, and the groom a tuxedo. You may have a wedding party and a ceremony at a large venue, with reception following, complete with a multi-tiered cake, a formal dinner, a live band, dancing, and even a honeymoon. A milestone anniversary celebration is also often a “big splash” – a big party with lots of friends and relatives, but much more understated than a wedding.
A marriage vow renewal may be hosted by your children, or you may host it yourselves.
