WHY YOU SHOULD RENEW YOUR WEDDING VOWS
There are few days in our lives that are more glamorous than our wedding day. Friends and family gather to celebrate, you pick the most beautiful dress you could ever imagine, you dance, eat, drink and get to be as merry as humanly possible! It’s a shame we only get to experience our wedding day once in a lifetime. Luckily, that doesn’t have to be the case! You can relive your picture-perfect wedding day all over again by renewing your vows to the person you decided to share your happily ever after with.
Simple yet Elegant
As amazing as your original wedding day was, let’s not forget the massive amounts of time, effort and money that went into creating that special day. A vow renewal is an opportunity to pick and choose some of your favorite parts of your wedding day without the headache of a year’s worth of planning. If you still have your wedding dress, now is your chance to wear it again! If not, there is no need to splurge on a new one. A cocktail dress, evening gown or pant suit are all perfectly acceptable attire. And those wedding registries? Forget about it!
This is all about celebrating the years of marriage you’ve already spent together, not preparing for your life as a newlywed couple. Vow renewals recreate the best parts of your wedding day, while toning down the unnecessary expenses of a traditional wedding. There are no obligations or mandatory events. You are free to choose what to include, and can make it as simple or extravagant as you desire.
Consider the Reason for Your Vow Renewals
The reasons for renewing your vows are endless and should be unique to each couple. Are you heading into your 10th year of marriage and still get that same feeling you did when you first laid on your significant other? Have you overcome some particularly tough times together and now your marriage is stronger than ever? Are your kids all grown up and it’s finally just the two of you again? Whatever your reason is, a vow renewal is the perfect opportunity to reaffirm your commitment to each other, and to become reinvigorated by the idea of spending the rest of your lives together.
Dedicated Time for Reflection and Appreciation
In all the excitement of throwing what is essentially another wedding party, let’s not forget the most important part of they day; the vows! You and your partner have spent years together, sharing and creating memories that are special to just the two of you. You’ve fought, loved, cried, laughed and gone through just about every emotion imaginable together and emerged on the other side, hand in hand.
Staring into eachothers eyes, in front of your closest friends and relatives, is the perfect time to tell your partner how your years of marriage have helped shape you into the amazing person you are today. Writing your vows allows you time to reflect on all the sweet things that have happened in your married life, and to realize how thankful you are for the sacred bond you still share to this day.
Reminders of the Joy you Continue to Share
Renewing your vows is a special occasion and a time when it’s easy to remember why you fell in love in the first place. When you get a chance to see the images of your wedding and vow renewals side by side, you realize that time has given you the chance to get know each other better than ever, and recognize that the love and excitement has only just begun. So when planning your vow renewals, smile, and don’t forget the pictures! You may end up having so much fun that vow renewals become a yearly tradition.
