    Hmm most people will probably celebrate your renewal date since that’s the wedding you went to.

    Oh I meant that they went to but you know what I mean!

    But I would probably want to celebrate both!

    Well, you could really celebrate either one, but if it is widely known that your renewal is a renewal, then I’d celebrate the original wedding date. Renewing your vows doesn’t change what date you actually got married on. Also, in the actual date you celebrate won’t matter—what will matter is making sure you can make your daughter and other family members feel included in your lives, no matter which date you are marking :).

    We had a civil ceremony in February and a religious ceremony in September. We’re celebrating both (the more reasons to celebrate, the better!!) But in terms of “How long have you been married”? we’re using our civil ceremony date because we’ve been together for 8 years and I don’t want to be cheated out of another 8 months when people ask me.

    The funniest thing is that we planned our Honeymoon in February because we want it to be freezing in Michigan when we go on vacation, but it’s actually during our civil ceremony week, so we’re calling it our Honeymoon/First Anniversary cruise!

    Personally I would celebrate the date you actually got married and legally signed the papers.. but it is entirely up to you. You could celebrate both like the PP said, or pick the one thats more meaningful to you
