My husband and I will be married for ten years in July. We are wanting to renew our vows. Our wedding almost ten year’s ago, did not go as planned at all. No one showed up. The music was screwed up. So I was thinking about the vow renewal being like our second wedding. I am wanting some advice and positive opinions on this please.

I think that would be fantastic! I suggest that you start planning now and don’t stress it. Make it as intimate or elaborate as you choose.

The great thing about vow renewals is that the pressure is off! You know you’ll (still) be married by the end of it! There are no rules, you can go as fancy or casual as you want, serve (or don’t) whatever you want, and no one can say “that’s not what we do at weddings! Go for it! And don’t forget to send us a recap of you do 😉

I think you deserve the wedding you’ve always wanted, even if you’re already married! I think you can make it as fancy or as casual as you’d like. 🙂

Thanks everyone for your input. I have started planning already. I have the bouquet done, candle holders done, and I am working on giving my old wedding dress a make over. We have 3 boys who will be present and part of the ceremony. I Will keep everyone updated and will post pics after ceremony is done. Thanks again.

When we got married, we had 14 people including us, planned it in a month so my mother-in-law could be there while in town, I didn’t have a real wedding dress, the cake a 1 layer made by a friend, etc. So, I’ve always felt let down by it. So, we’re renewing our vows for our 25th next year. I’m doing it how I want. I think you should do the same. Especially since you have children (we don’t), but, I’ll have some flower girls since people always seem to get a kick out of them. I think you should have the dream wedding you never had. I’m considering mine an Anniversary party and vow renewal, but you call it whatever you want and include what you want!!!

I think vow renewals are so sweet & wonderful! Make it exactly what you want. When I was buying my dress at DB, there was a middle aged lady picking up her dress. We chatted & she said it was for her vow renewal–a full on white ball gown! I thought that was so great.
Please do keep us posted & we will need dress shopping pics. Congratulations, by the way!
