My husband and I got married about 3 years ago. Sad to say we didn’t get married for the right reasons. We just went to the court house and got married there, with my sister and sister in law as witnesses. We don’t celebrate our wedding anniversary because it didn’t really mean much to us.
Honestly we regret getting married for that one reason only.
We are planning on having a vow renewal since we can’t get married again. we are pretty excited.
Have you had a vow renewal?
I wanted to wear a pretty dress, not a bridal gown but something elegant. Our kids, our mothers, close family and friends will be there. We are planning on having a little reception at our back yard.
**sorry misspelled vow**

From what I’ve seen there really isn’t anything against having a full fledged wedding event for this type of thing. Especially since you’ve never had a reception. On SYTTD girls are in there all the time for vow renewals and they get the same bridal gowns as first time brides.

I think you just need to take that joy and run with it. Celebrate your love. Most of the guests you will invite didn’t get a chance to join you the first time so I’m certain they’ll be joyful as well.
Heck, I’m excited for you! Are you doing it on the anniversary of the first one or on a whole new date?

@Bunny82: we are doing it on july5 which is the day we began dating. so we will be together for 6 years on that date.
we got married on dec 4. that date doesn’t mean much to us, july5 is much more special to us since thats when it all started.

@pbrangel: My best advice is have fun planning. I tell couples that there are basically no rules when it comes to renewing their vows. In the past you couldn’t do a lot of things because it was totally taboo. But now, it is just like planning a wedding but this time you get to relax and have fun.
Enjoy your second time around and Best Wishes.
