Private vow renewal between you and your husband is a great idea. Do not send announcements or invite anyone out. Private = really only the two of you need to even know about it. To everyone else, your first anniversary (if you do it on the anniversary) or vow renewal are not noteworthy events. It’s your choice about the dress but buying a new dress may be cost-prohibitive.

I guess if you do it privately, it’s fine, but I honestly don’t understand.  You ended up married, right?  You said the vows.  How would a vow renewal change anything, especially if it’s just a small private moment with you and your husband?

If it’ll make you happy I don’t see anything wrong with getting pretty bridal pics and having another ceremony with your husband to celebrate your first anniversary but….

I would def not send announcements- to everyone else it’s just your first anniversary. I’ve never heard of an announcement for a private vow renewal or any vow renewal for that matter. People will be confused or maybe think you’re fishing for presents or something. It’s sweet but not news to be formally announced IMO.
