Renewing your wedding vows; many couples want to celebrate and reaffirm their love and commitment for one another by renewing their marriage vows. Some couples choose to renew their vows after facing hardships. Renewing your vows is the perfect way to recommit to your partner and celebrate your years of love with friends and family.
Legalities for renewing your vows
Renewing your vows isn’t a legal ceremony. It is only a symbolic and sentimental ceremony, therefore there is no license or paperwork required. You will not need a marriage officer per say.
Tips on renewing your marriage vows
- Keep your vows casual and simple
- Don’t draw attention to negativity in your past. Focus on your future together
- Walk towards one another from sides of the room rather than having a procession down the aisle
- Have a “no-gift” type of reception
- Hire a photographer
- For a cute touch to your vow renewal ceremony: have a love timeline. A pretty timeline that documents you and your partner’s important moments is a creative way to display your love story
Planning your vowel renewal
Similar to planning a wedding, you should begin thinking about what type of ceremony and reception you would like and how many guests will attend. Set a budget and a date and then find a venue. The reception could either be a catered function or it could be a meal with friends and family in a restaurant. We are here to assist you if you need assistance with planning.
Ditch the traditions
Often couples feel pressured by family and friends to have a very traditional ceremony. This time around, skip any traditions that don’t feel right to you. You and your partner’s personalities should shine through with a vowel renewal. You could ask your original bridal party to stand beside you, but this is not a must.
Don’t forget to have a good time! Focus on your love for one another and have fun. This is an opportunity to reignite and re-energize your love.
