My husband and I got married almost 2 years ago, due to the issues we had planning our wedding we had to basically confirm to a low budget wedding done in our local church and had the reception in the same place with aprox almost 300 guests (and we didnt get to invite everyone we wanted. This was mostly his family). Our plan was to make up all of that by having a 5 year anniversary party in order for us to have the “real wedding reception” we always wanted. Is this a good idea? OR should we wait a bit longer? We arent expecting gifts or anything like that its mostly to celebrate with everyone we love and to have the decor and venue that we have always wanted.

marerlyn : First- 300 guests is a huge party. I realize it’s not what you wanted, but I’m not sure anyone would say you didn’t have a reception, so having a do-over just five years out does feel really soon.
To me, any sort of big party vow renewal sort of thing makes no sense before 10 years at the very earliest. Even that feels soon to me, but if you were maybe in college when you got married and ten years later you have a bunch of new important people in your life, then maybe it makes sense. Five years? Way too soon.

MexiPino : I was in college when i got married and still am in school. I had been thinking about it more which is why i posted the question to get some points of views. Also because I have asked family members and close friends and they thought it was a great idea (honestly I just think they want to party) but thank you for your honest opinion.

marerlyn : If you can wait 10 years I would because somehow it makes sense that it’s a milestone anniversary at the minimum for a big celebration.

Go for it! You framed it just right, as a 5 year anniversary, and you get to plan exactly what you want.
Why not celebrate your love?
