Ideas For Vow Renewal

As marriage progresses, couples may find themselves longing to reaffirm their love to each other. 

Perhaps your first ceremony was small and you couldn't afford much, and now you find yourselves in the position to be able to have the extravaganza that you wanted. If that is the case, truly have fun with it. Vow renewals aren't less serious than a wedding, but they can be a bit less stressful. You both already know what your life together is and that is what you are celebrating with friends and family. On your new special day, you will be able to relax a bit more and enjoy things that may have been overlooked on your harried wedding day. 

Or perhaps it's the other way around. Maybe your first wedding was a big event - huge, even - and you want to scale it back. You are reaffirming your love for your spouse and you want intimacy. Take the time to really go through your guest list. Who do you want there? Probably those who have supported you through your married life and without whom you may not have made it to this point. Take the time to book a quiet venue and maybe have your reception at a nice restaurant where you and your close friends and family can enjoy each other without the hustle and bustle of a big party. 

Whichever you decide, there are plenty of fabulous vendors on to help you manage your vow renewals. Make rediscovering your love truly amazing, in whatever way suits you best.
