    It wouldn’t be weird at all. It’s just a few days. You’ll have two anniversaries now.

    I don’t know if Saturday or Sunday would be better, though. I think the day would depend on what’s most convenient for you and your guests, and possibly your venue and vendors.

    Its not weird. I think people would find the Tuesday weirder. My wedding is going to be the day before our three year anniversary – it would have been nice to do it on the actual day, but the saturday was more convenient

    I don’t know if people would come to a vow renewal if it required them to miss work. No one would think it was weird if you had it the weekend before or after your actual anniversary. 🙂 Plus, you can keep the excitement going with whatever you two choose to do on your exact anniversary.

    Sorry, it’s not going to be a “real” wedding.  Your wedding was 4 years ago.  You know this.

    If you want to have an anniversary party go for it……………but anything wedding-like at this point is nothing more than a fake gift-grabbing, “look at us”, attention seeking, ridiculous farce.  And it demeans the sanctity of your original vows.  You cannot create or capture the feelings you would have had, had you done things differently, that ship has sailed.

    jw2b :  Completely disagree. Who are you to tell them that it will demean the sanctity of their original vows and it won’t capture the right feelings? You aren’t them. If they want to have a wedding 5 years later, they can. People who think like you don’t have to attend and that kind of attitude won’t be missed on their special day.

    jw2b :  Disagree also. OP enjoy your day! I voted Saturday! 🙂

    jw2b :  I disagree also. I’m tired of reading comments like these here. Some people get married unexpectedly due to life circumstances and are not able to share that special day with everyone dear to them. Besides, her question was which date was better and she’s made up her mind to do so. 

    OP, if you want a late night party atmosphere, do it Saturday. For a more laid back daytime wedding, do it Sunday. Tuesday, being a weekday, would be tough I think. I’m leaning more on Sunday though but that’s because I’m not a big party person. Most people will likely choose Saturday.
