My name is Khloé and I’m new here.
My husband and I have been married for almost 3 amazing years and have a beautiful 2 year old son together. We ran away together and eloped, and got married by the Justice of the Peace so we never got to have an *actual* wedding and reception with all the photos and memories to remember our special day by. Because of that -and also because we want to renew our vows and recommit our marriage to ourselves and to God-, we’re planning a vow renewal for our 5th year. We want to go all out; big dress, tux w/ a rockstar twist to compliment my hubby’s style, bridesmaids, first dance, tiered cake, etc. Both of us are way tooo excited about it and have already started planning!
I was wondering for those who have renewed their vows, did you walk down the aisle together, or did you walk down the aisle to your husband after the wedding party has entered? I want to do things like we would have done them the first time, the “traditional” way. Just wondering what you have all done. 🙂

There really should not be a wedding party since this is not a wedding. However, if you and your guests would be comfortable with certain elements of a wedding at your vow renewal, that is all that matters.
My husband and I are renewing our vows for our fifth. We plan on walking down the aisle together.

I got married at the courthouse. And we are renewing our vows next April. I will actually have my Dad walk me down the aisle. I don’t pay attention to the traditional way of renewing vows. It’s your day! Do it exactly how you want to do it!!! I personally will be doing ours like its the first time. Because Iwant those memories and I was my Dad to have the memory of walking medown the aisle even if Ive already been married for 9 years. Every person deserves to have their day be the way they want it. So that rule book out the window and do it your way! 🙂

Etiquette rules serve as guidelines, but people are certainly free to make their own rules if they like.
The only rule I am breaking is wearing a wedding gown.

I know my friend is doing this in July, so I will let you know what she does so you can have some ideas!

I just think you have to consider your guests as well. I think a lot of people would be confused by a “redo” wedding. Etiquette mostly exists for the purpose of treating others well and respectfully, I wouldn’t throw that out the window completely if you are having guests.
