I think that sounds beautiful! It’s a great idea.

I’m sorry to hear about your son (and his daughter), I can’t even imagine the heartbreak you must have felt.

@MrsMc77:  No.  I think that when our marriages make it through horrible experiences, it changes who we are and it makes sense to recommit ourselves.  

I think that your idea is lovely, simple, and perfectly appropriate.

Not cheesy at all. You’ve been through hell, and a vow renewal would be a lovely way to mark the past and celebrate the future.

First of all, I’m so sorry for your loss.

In regards to your vow renewal, I generally consider that to be something that should be shared by the couple. In this case inviting family and friends seems to be appropriate though. Congrats on how far you’ve come.

@MrsMc77:  I think it would be lovely.  🙂  FYI, for vow renewals, you don’t need a licensed officiant, since it is not a legal ceremony.

I think that sounds like an awesome idea. I’m happy to hear that your marriage is moving forward. I’m so sorry for all of the hardship you have had to go through. Good luck with everything, I’m sure it will be a beautiful day. 🙂

No, not cheesy at all my friend.

You are celebrating the fact that your marriage has weathered so many storms. That is a beautiful reason for a vow renewal.

Happy planning!
