I’ve already considered this and DH is begging me for a break from wedding planning! πŸ˜‰

I am not a newlywed yet but I have totally considered it!! I just think I want to wait until we have our two kids we plan to have πŸ™‚ I don’t think it’s silly at all! Heidi Klum does it once a year LOL

We secretly eloped a year before our big wedding, so technically we’ve already done a vow renewal once – and we plan on doing it every year!  We love the idea of celebrating our anniversary by saying our vows again but we will never, ever again plan something as big and expensive as our wedding!

I see no problem with doing it once a year Heidi Klum and Seal style πŸ™‚ I think my husband and I will do something, like reread our vows, get dressed up, etc., every year on our anniversary. To me, there’s nothing wrong to trying to relive the moment to bring to back to why you got married in the first place. Just because it’s over doesn’t mean it’s done, you know?

As long as it’s just the two of you, then I don’t see the problem. It sounds fun and romantic, go for it!

I thought about it for our first anniv. but DH begged me not to make him “do that again.”  I was PO’d until he clarified that he means standing up in front of church with “all your people” watching.  (Is it my fault he only knows like 30 people and I have 100 aunts, uncles and first cousins?)  I keep hoping for the Vegas Elvis wedding for our fifth πŸ™‚

We jokingly talk about renewing our vows every year — just as an excuse to get all of our friends & family together on an annual basis to have a big party with them again and again and again… πŸ™‚

Since we’re having a really small wedding (30 people–only immediate family), we’re going to have a party on our first or 2nd anniversary so all our friends and the rest of our family can meet, greet, enjoy each other. (By then, we should be happily employed and graduated from college)

I think it would be romantic to have a vow renewal! If we did it it would just be the two of us though. Maybe someday we’ll do it πŸ™‚

we definitely plan on renewing our vows. i talked about it with my now husband and he too asked for a wedding break since we just got married. i was thinking some day when we’re vacation alone for our anniversary and maybe down the line when we have kids so they can be part of it.

I think if you’re both up for it, you should do it.  I haven’t even begun to consider it but after reading this post it sounds like a good idea.  We’d probably wait for our 5 year anniversary though.  I do want to go away for every anniversary, if we’re able to.  It doesn’t have to be extravagent, but something for just the 2 of us.

My sis is doing the 20 year vow renewal in vegas!  With the elvis minister but elegantly.  Wynn style!

I think it’s fine if your H is up for it!  For us?  Who knows.  Probably at ever five year intervals.

I think I know where my focus as a newlywed will go after the vows are said…into house design!  I still have to change focus of his home from his to ours and make it from bacheloriffic to verandah style! lol!  Interior design and having parties will become the new “thing” to plan for!

We are considering doing it for our 5 year anniversary when we head back to Hawaii, which is where we honeymooned.  We both had wanted to get married on a beach in Hawaii, but it would’ve cost quite a bit for our parents and close friends, so we didn’t.  But if we do renew our vows again, it will be on a beach in Hawaii, and we plan on going back there for our 5 year anniversary anyway, so why not!!
