So I am searching venues right now for my vow renewal and then it dawns on me! We aren’t actuallying getting married, we are having an anniversary party where we just happen to be renewing our vows. Would it be okay to book under a banquet or party than a wedding? Because, its soooo much cheaper to book it that way honestly.
What do you all think?

Hmmm. I think it should be fine! You already have the same last name and all… They can’t claim it’s otherwise IMO.

I think it’s totally fine. I mean, why would you book it as a wedding if you’re already married?

Well, technically it IS an anniversary party, where you will be renewing your vows, so, I think you would not be deceptive to book the party in that manner. If you were not married and were getting married and wanted to lie just to save money, I couldn’t condone that. However, you would be speaking the truth, that this is a celebration of your anniversary. You just happen to be renewing your vows as well. (If the venue asks you to provide details of any activites you plan to have taking place during the party, I definitely would include mention of the vow-renewal ceremony, however, just to be sure that venue staff members do not later think that you attempted to hide something from them.)

Be careful, some venues will charge you extra when they find out you had a vow renewal at their location and did not schedule it. They book them as weddings and they expect to be paid the same amount as if it was a wedding.
