I know i’ve only been married a month but i’m just wondering when do people normally renew vows… is this something that older couples do like for a 50th anniversary or something else?
Is renewing vows the same as getting married? do you have the costs involved with a celebrant or is it different because your already legally married?

I think with renewing vows you don’t necessarily have to go the same distance as the real deal — if you are religious your pastor etc will probably do it for a similar or lesser feedonation (depending on if you are using the churchtemple etc).
I think a celebrant, Justice of the Peace or officiant canwill do it, but I would assume that would come with a fee, likely quite similar to what it would cost for getting married.
Also, if it is just a vow renewal you could likely get a friend, mentor, or someone who has meant a lot to you or the relationship to do the ceremony (however you decide to swing that).
I have only personally been to one vow renewal and it was my grandparent’s 50th wedding (I remember because it was a huge family reunion at a barn with lots of food and rambunctious cousins for my 10year old self to cavort with), I don’t believe they had an officiant or celebrant of any sort, maybe the Anglican priest or bishop gave blessing or reading but I cannot quite remember. It would not surprise me if they had just said their own vows in front of the family without an “official person“ but that is just how they roll.

I can’t stop thinking about the idea of renewing out vows on our 1yr anniversary… inviting the same group of people we invited to our BBQ dinner after we secretly got married that morning… I was thinking because we will be going to the same place we had out honeymoon on our 1yr maybe having it there (have to find out if thats possible but it would be beautiful if we could)….. BUT then again i’m not sure if everyone that was invited to our BBQ would make the trip up there… it just under an hour from our place and a few people like Darling Husband parents live another 1hour away from us… BUT then it would be something i would turn into a day thing so it’s not just hey come up here and watch us then leave…. OMG ideas are flooding into my head for things that can be done…..
MAYBE omg i could surprise my husband?? like OMG LOL so many ideas LMAO we could stay the night before our 1yr and then i could escape in the morning before he wakes up (leaving nice clothes layed out with a note saying to meet me here) and then go get prettied up and then BOOM he comes down to see my all pretty with both our families there… hahaha well thats one of many ideas in my head anyway.
what do yous think about doing something for our 1yr?

I think that was a beautiful idea!!! I have been married less than 2 months and have already started thinking of te vow renewals, not next year mind you, probably for the next 7 years or 13 years (all symbollic) Either way you’re not alone!!!! It’s been a year now, so what did you do??
