- Wedding: July 2010
It’s been less than a year since my wedding. I had a wedding that many girls dream of: lots of family and friends, elaborate dress, huge cake, etc. etc. I had this wedding because my now husband and my family wanted me to have it. But frankly, it wasn’t what I wanted. I wanted a small, private elopement with just my husband, me, and the minister. Even when planning my real wedding, I would beg my husband to have a “secret ceremony” in the park. We didn’t because it would hurt too many people’s feelings.
Well, the real wedding was lovely. Our families and friends warmed the event, showing us the highest amount of support, generosity, and love. However, I still feel like I missed out on the ceremony I really wanted. In fact, I feel rather empty inside. Would it be terrible if we had a vow renewal ceremony on our one year anniversay with just the two of us (my husband and me)? Would people think us crazy if they found out?
