I am. I was supposed to do a big VR but honestly it was so hard to manage with family issues, a husband’s potential deployment, money, location (we are 5000 away from everyone), drama and everyone throwing their two cents into something that they were not paying/part of/not even supportive about, I had to finally question myself about what was really important and instead of cancelling, I wanted to celebrate my marriage between just my husband and I. We are leaving Hawaii next year and so I thought it would be a nice thing to celebrate our marriage here before we go. It also doesn’t help that I tend to get really anxious in big crowds.

 

In the end we just decided it was better to have a small thing, just us on the beach and have a great time than being stressed about everyone else and how to do things.I figured that I cannot please everyone so I might as well do what I want to do.

 

Where are you thinking of having your VR? There are a lot of cool locations and there are some wedding packages that are pretty affordable if you look hard enough.

@porkchopsbride2be:  Well, if it does help I think there are some resorts that offer a vow renewal/marriage package. Cancun sounds wonderful but Jamaica sounds great too…those are hard choices. A good factor may be to compare plane prices, resort prices and even if some resorts offer a wedding package. I think some do. Of course, there are other wedding companies that do the ceremony with the little things attached.

Hawaii can be pretty expensive so we usually find cheap things to do and splurge on something only once in a while. 

I got the dress but oh man was it crazy getting it! I thought I wanted a short vintage style dress but I saw this  long one with some lovely lace (I will get it cleaned after) and wore it. My mom had been down for a visit (her first time) and screeched “That’s the one! Get it!”

We are planning to do a vow renewal after our second child is born with the kids, and then for our tenth anniversary do one with just the two of us. We might renew with just the two of us every five/ten years after that (as long as we’re having fun with it). I think we will do the next couple of vow renewals in our hometown to save money, but if we were going abroad, there are a lot of lovely all-inclusive resorts in the Riviera Maya in Mexico.
