I wouldn’t do it. You’re already married. It’s doubtful it would be prioritized by guest (as a wedding would). Expecting the whole wedding experience,  gifts etc. I’m sorry but that ship has sailed.  You have other priorities now. Have a vow renewal in 10 years. Congrats on the baby and marriage!

becontent :  There’s nothing wrong with having a celebration party, but I think you’re wise to weigh the costs and benefits. It really is just a party. If you have a good savings cushion and it’s not going to take away from money you’ll need when the baby comes, I’d go for it. But if having a big fancy party means staying in a 1-bedroom for another year instead of moving to 2, or if it means your co-pay for labor & delivery will have to go on a credit card, I would skip the party.

I agree with PPs in not having one especially since you’re feeling unsure. That would be the first concern and then as others said, people might not prioritize it as a “wedding.” I personally would prefer to save more money towards baby and maybe something special for you and your husband to enjoy. If you have cold feet about it right now you might really regret it later if you run into financial difficulties during pregnancy or after the baby is here. I think you should definitely  express to your husband that you are not feeling certain and maybe suggest something else if you have anything in mind.
