Why renew?

Some couples choose to renew their vows after going through a rough patch in their marriage, representing a fresh start and looking to the future, while others might do it in celebration of milestone anniversaries.

The hosts

Typically, couples host their own vow renewals.

The location

You could revisit the venue where you were first married, or pick a place that is meaningful for you and your spouse. Another options is simply heading to a beach, a botanical garden, or your back yard. The smaller the renewal party, the more options you might have for intimate venues.

The legalities

There are no legalities - so you can have anyone lead the ceremony/service of your vow renewals!

The guest list

Contrary to wedding planning, you can keep your list as small or large as you'd like for your vow renewals. It could be as simple as the two of you and close family.

The order of events

Again, this is your day, so you may choose to walk down an aisle, in a recreation of the ceremony on your wedding day.

The Vows

You may choose to say your original wedding day vows, or you could revise them, or even write completely new vows.

The gifts

Etiquette says there should not be any gifts given from your guests. There is definitely no need to create a registry, simply invite guests to join and be present the day of!
