WEDDING VOW RENEWAL & COMMITMENT CEREMONIES
Already Married? Want to commit without the ‘legal bit’? Want to say ‘I do’ all over again? Whatever the reason, be it a commitment ceremony or vow renewal ceremony, they are the same as a marriage ceremony in essence – full of lovin’ and all the feels.
Tell Me More…
Vow renewals are not legally binding so legalities are unnecessary. With ceremonies that don’t have the ‘legals,’ we go through the same process, we collect and collate, we refine – and just leave the paperwork out of it. Then we have a rocking party. Winner!
Oh, you know you can do it anywhere, right? Did somebody say, ‘Let’s wander…’?
Let’s meet ‘n’ greet—an initial, obligation-free meeting to see if we are a perfect match. I’ll show you what I can do and hear what you want to do.
WHY HAVE A VOW RENEWAL CEREMONY?
Vow renewal presents an opportunity to celebrate your enduring love for one another with family members and friends who are invested in your life as a couple. It’s a recommitment ceremony for a married couple so they can reflect on the past and focus on their new life together.
You might want to renew your vows for the following reasons:
- To celebrate a special anniversary like a milestone wedding anniversary.
- So you can involve your children if they weren’t at the wedding.
- If the previous party was a big bash, maybe you want to go for a more intimate affair to celebrate your loving marriage with only a handful of guests.
- It was a low-key, small wedding and renewing the wedding vows would present an opportunity to really go big!
- It could be in the aftermath of a serious illness or something that has made you think about what really matters.
- The vow renewal ceremony will be a sequel to a wedding that happened abroad, intending to include family members who couldn’t attend initially.
- The relationship has emerged from a rocky period and renewing the wedding vows would mark a new start.
- An empty nest has given a fresh focus on each other.
VOW RENEWAL IDEAS
There are infinite ways to create your vow renewal celebration with your true love, from indulging in your unfulfilled big venue wedding fantasies to embracing your inner barefoot bohemian for an intimate ceremony in an idyllic setting.
Your renewal of vows should reflect who you are individually and as a couple. Sometimes it can be challenging to find that common ground, especially if you are an ‘opposites attract’ type of couple, but you didn’t get this far without compromising!
Discuss how the vow exchange will take place and if you want to exchange rings as part of the ceremony. You might want a big wedding dress and party or simply a champagne toast with close friends and family members in a location close to your heart, retaking your marriage vows could be the confirmation of your enduring love for the marriage needs.
