Renewal of vows is common for couples wanting to celebrate a wedding anniversary. However it is not limited to only anniversaries. A vow renewal can be a way to show to your partner that you are still committed and can be a way to reaffirming everything you once promised. Here are some tips for having a vow renewal ceremony.
You can either choose to read the same vows from your wedding day or you can take this opportunity to make new ones. Making new vows allows you to include any new memories and promises. As a way to recreate your wedding day you can exchange new rings or use the same rings once again. Sine this occasion is not a legal ceremony there is no need to have a officiate. Because of this you can have a friend or family member for the reading of vows. For a more formal occasion you can have a civil celebrant or same sex marriage celebrant conduct the ceremony.
Décor & Place
Renewing your vows doesn’t mean that you have to have it in a fancy hall. You have the freedom to have it any place you want. This can be a place which holds a special memory for you and your partner. Or you can choose a place which you both like. Either way it is up to you and your partner to decide where you will renew your vows.
Since the ceremony is very simple there is no need to have complicated decorations. Placing a few photographs of your wedding day and any important photos taken after can be a great decoration. Including such photos will allow you to create a timeline of the best moments of your life after your marriage.
Since a vow renewal is similar to a wedding you now have the chance to include your children in a very special day. Your children can either read stories or poetry, share drawings or they can simply be present. Involving your children can allow you to include them in the photographs and during the vow renewal ceremony.
If your wedding day was like every other wedding you can use this opportunity to show more creativity. This type of ceremony is not limited to any location therefore you can have it any unique place you prefer. If you want to make it more special you can choose to wear your wedding outfit. You can also spend the day doing anything you want. This is the perfect way to celebrate a unique relationship.
