- Wedding: April 2006
My husband and I would like to renew our vows for our 6th anniversary. We ar eboth roman catholic and got married in a church with a huge sit down reception for around 180 friends and family. I really want a small intimate vow renewal with just close friends and family and a little celebration but not a huge party after. I want something our son will be able to attend (will be 9months) and not have to go home and be babysat so the adults can stay. I have no idea where to start. What kind of celebration could we have after?? These are the things I want to do,.,, please feel free to criticise/add suggestions and opinions of whether these are appropriate for a vow renewal, I def dont want to look like I am doing a 2nd wedding.
– Although I am not going to wear a full wedding dress, I would like to wear an off white/ cream dress. Something Audrey Hepburn style and tea length similar to this
possibly teamed with coloured shoes to match a very small coloured boquet or even a single long stemmed flower. Do you think this is too much like a wedding???
– I also really want a photographer but just for pics of my my husband and our son, not a whole wedding party, am not having any attendants. I just want some really natural shots of us walking hand in hand, leaning against a tree etc, snuggling with our baby.
-A beautiful setting. I want everything to be simple and not OTT in anyway but I would like a beautiful cathedral setting and nice gardens for photos after. I can’t decide on having family there to witness or have it just the three of us ( and maybe someone else to hold the baby etc). I am so afraid of family thinking “why are they treating this like another wedding…”
-No idea on a celebration for after. I love the idea of a garden party with fairy lights and vintage themed stuff but have no idea how to go about this as I don’t actually have a garden lol. It would be easier to go somewhere for a meal, but then its getting too formal….I dont know…
Please please please offer some thoughts on what I have posted and add suggestions
