My husband and I are renewing our vows on our 10th anniversary. All I know for sure is that we want it to be formal and will be immediately followed by a dinner/dance reception. We were married by the JOP because at the time we had a lot of issues with extended family going on and wanted to be married even though there was a lot of external turmoil that made a big wedding impractical. I am not looking to recreate a first wedding so to speak but want it to be a beautiful and romantic expression of our amazing love for each other. What are your thoughts on what kind of dress would or would not be appropriate for this occasion? Pictures welcome too

Hi. We are planning our 30th Wedding Anniversary Vow Renewal! Some of the women here have gotten gowns made from an onsite place. I will have to look up the name. Anyway, that is what I am thinking of. My husband doesn’t think I should wear white or ivory. Since we have planned for this in Mexico, I was thinking of a blue sea type color. I would like to have mine made for me-so I can hide all my flaws, lol. In the meantime I have some positive weight loss going on!
I think DressilyMe is the name of the site. This is the one I like! I am going to ask them to take the trim off around the neckline and put it on the edges of the outer strap/sleeve.

It seems like a formal evening gown would be in order – in any color you want! Maybe you could do a wedding gown in a different color. My niece just went to prom in what looked like a silver wedding gown. It was very sophisticated and I would have worn it for my wedding if she and I were anywhere near the same size! lol!

as far as renewals go, etiquette says wear what you want! The only no-no’s are:
registering for gifts

wear whatever you want! I don’t think there are any no-no’s other than what the pp said about registries and such.
