We’re renewing our vows because our original wedding had to be cancelled due to our daughter’s urgent surgery.  However, I completely get where you’re coming from wanting something intimate to celebrate and I think it’s a lovely idea 🙂  I would think with a huge wedding, a lot of things can get overlooked, like time to just be with your husband in the moment, have a quiet glass of champagne together, etc.  I think i sounds great.

I never wanted a big ceremony. I wanted an intimate yet upscale celebration with our families. Unfortunately, my mother and my MIL were both taking over our day no matter what we said. My mother became very rude and belligerent whenever we told her our plans. We eloped to escape her negative energy and do something we could afford without taking my parents money.

Our vow renewal will have less than 30 guests but my parents will get to see me in a wedding gown, along with experiencing other wedding elements. We renewing our vows for our fifth only because my mother may not be alive for our tenth and my parents are leaving the country permanently soon after. I don’t want them to have to pay plane fare to come to my vow renewal.

I like your intimate vow renewal idea. I would not have enjoyed the type of wedding you originally had and it would be very romantic to renew your vows with just your husband. Have a good time!
