@lindseyl06:  I don’t think its crazy at all.  If this is what you want and you can do it, why not?

A honeymoon/vow renewal sounds pretty amazing to me. I had a highschool friend that got married through Sandals. It was lovely. They really have some amazing backgrounds for ceremonies, and they provided her with the prettiest orchids, too. If you and Darling Husband want it, I say go for it.

You could frame the picture of you from this renewal beside one of your wedding photos.

If it’s just the two of you I don’t see an issue with it. I’ll be honest, if you wanted a big wedding re-do, as a guest I would totally be side-eyeing it like, “Uhhh I JUST went to your wedding. Really?” But this is something romantic just for the two of you, it’s really no one else’s business. I think it sounds very romantic!

@Wonderstruck:  Agree.

At first I thought you were planning a full destination wedding, and I was a little rattled, but having an intimate vow renewel honeymoon really does sound amazing! Go for it! 🙂

@lindseyl06:  I don’t really know anything about the Sandals resorts – they look really nice, hopefully some bees who have experience with it will come along with advice (although I’m sure there’s been threads about it before if you use the search bar.) But  I’d probably start looking for a dress within the next few months since, as I’m sure you know from your first wedding, they ca take a bit to get ordered in.

If your wedding was only 3 weeks ago, as your profile date would suggest, I’d say wait a few months before making any decisions. A lot of the “it wasn’t perfect” disappointment fades fairly quickly, and in a few  months you may feel that it’s not worth the expense, or you’re happy to wait for a milestone anniversary, simply because you’re no longer fixated on what went wrong, and are busy remembering what went right.

I think it sounds wonderfully romantic and a great way to celebrate 1 year of marriage.  Though @fishbone:  does have a good point.  If you just got married a few weeks ago, I’d wait before making any final decisions.  I could definitely see you still taking a nice honeymoon, but you might decide to ditch the vow renewal part and save the money.

But if you do decide to go the vow renewal, don’t worry about shopping for another wedding dress.  Salons are there to sell you a dress, not judge you.

@lindseyl06:  Its not crazy at all. I’m only going through with the giant wedding in hopes of having a private vow renewal down the road.
