If its initiate thing then go for it!! If you were having wedding all over again every 5 years it might be a bit over the top (not to mention expensive!)

Personally I think every 5 is a bit much. I say every 10 would be more meaningful.

A little over the top with the vow renewal, but I think hiring a professional photographer to capture you guys every five years would be incredibly sweet.

I think it’s a great idea! many of the resorts offer a free or very affordable vow renwal ceremony for couples that want to renew their vows.

You don’t have to worry about vow renewals being over the top, if it is just the two of you.

There are no guest opinions to worry about.

We will be renewing our vows with family for our fifth anniversary but not again.

I would rather receive a nice piece of jewellery every five years but to each her own.

As long as the ceremony (and the photos) are just for the two of you, who cares if it’s over the top?

yeah if it’s just the two of you or very small like immediate family only that is okay and not over the top. I watched a reality show and the lady on there renewed her vows every year – now that’s excessive!

I love it!  I think mostly for the vacation/picture aspect.  I cherish anytime I can get my husband to do nice pictures.  I think I might ask my husband to do this too.  πŸ™‚

i think its a lovely idea,i been with my husband since we were 20,we are 41 now and just got married a month ago.we will do a vow renewal every 5 years,nothing that cost alot.just with special close family and friends.probly 20 to 30 people,something like a bbq pool party and us going away together for a couple days.

i lost to many loved ones to wait every 10 years,i would do it every year if i could lol πŸ™‚

i cant wait till we can renew,i had so much fun on our wedding day♥maybe ill have a bbq pool party first anniversary party πŸ™‚ but really we will be together 21 years♥

@Ellemichelle:  If its your style, then go for it! If it were me and my Fiance, we might be writing letters to eachother (so, minus the officiant and photog) to reaffirm out love for one another.  I dont see the need for the extra frills every 5 years- but I do think the idea of a vacation is great!

We’re doing the exact same thing πŸ™‚ Every 5 years for us too! We just had our first one 2 months ago. It’s wasn’t just us and a photographer, though-it was us, closest family and our best friends that wanted to join also. It was mostly about a holiday away all together, and then the vow renewal day was amazing. I was being such a baby about it because I thought repeating the whole wedding day was stupid (DH insisted on a few things) but it actually turned out to be such a wonderful time! Really happy we did it, and I can’t wait for the next one. We might not do the traditional stuff again like we just did, we were thinking something like picking a spot in the world and taking on a few of the local traditions to make each one a little different. πŸ™‚

@Ellemichelle:  Not over the top at all. I had the same thought also. Maybe at 5 years we will have a destination vow renewal at a resort or something….just the 2 of us.

You don’t need an excuse of a vow renewal to take a vacation every five years lr hire a photographer to take lifestyle pics of you.
