That’s a little too over the top for my taste – but if that’s what you guys want, go for it! I would be prepared for some slack from outsiders though, because I think a lot of people will think its over the top (but I might be wrong).

@mh.albania: Honestly, it sounds a little over the top to me.

I’d rather a fun weekend trip or a nice dinner out over a photographed ceremony every year.

But if you and your Darling Husband really like that idea, then go for it!

I agree with the others, I think that’s a little too over the top. I would only consider renewing our vows at least every 10 years or so. I don’t think it’d feel quite as special if done every year.

We’re having a vow renewal on honeymoon and will probably repeat our vows to one another on our wedding anniversaries thereafter but not with a photographer or celebrant. We just want it to be the two of us.

In all honesty, I think it might be a little OTT to do it with a photographer and celebrant, but as long as you’re happy then do whatever works for you.

I think Nick Cannon & Mariah and Seal & Heidi do this too.  I think that’s why I wouldn’t. lol.

@mh.albania:I LOVE it. anniversary dinner is something I always want to do, and we have a typed up version of the ceremony. The vows are like 30 seconds each. I think it would be lovely to do at the anniversary dinner.

We don’t have enough extra $$ to get pro photos each time, but I like the idea.

 

We’ve already gone through a couple rough patches where we go back to our wedding contract and read through it. It’s very calming.

I think it is a bit too much. I mean it is a great Idea but after a while it will loose its meaning. I think a nice dinner and maybe a family photo every year will do this justice. But I mean, as said before, if you and your husband are on board then why not, do it to it. 🙂

@mh.albania:I’m all for something for just you two. In our”anniversary vows” I prefer not to have an officiant, but it that helps you, then do it. It’s your life. 🙂 Do it your way.

I worry that if done every year it will lose significance. Maybe every 5th anniversary? And then agree at 15 or 20 to do it big. That’s what I am doing LOL But you know, to each his own 🙂

Definitely agree with others who said over the top. I would stick to just dressing up and going out to a nice dinner. A vow renewal every year seems silly, as does shelling out the $$ for a professional photographer. And I personally think 10 years is a bit too soon for the big redo, 25 is the minimum I would do the big party for, anything less than that just seems attention-grabby. And I know I’m not the only one who feels this way because I do know a couple of people who did 10 or 15 year ons, there were lots of sarcastic/not understanding comments made by others about it.

I’m on my 30th wedding anniversary, and still wouldn’t do a renewal. I really don’t ‘get’ them anyway. It kind of (to me) makes the most important one (the first) less special. We go away every year anyway to celebrate, but a renewal? Nah.
