Forever and Ever: Celebrate Lasting Love By Renewing Your Vows


Most wedding sites, as you scan through them, appear to be generalized to young couples as they embark on their first wedding. Please do not misinterpret, as we are not assuming that they will eventually get divorced and wed again.

Many lovebirds renew their vows to each other. And, as we all know, some couples find that they are not compatible and go their separate ways. Many times, one, or both remarry.

The focus on this piece of writing will be on the couple wishing to renew their vows to each other. This means that they will have some age on them, when compared to the “20 and 30 somethings” that most wedding sites seem to feature the most.

So, let’s look at a couple areas of interest for the wedding vow renewal ceremony. Bear in mind, this is a celebration!

Location

Options are aplenty for the couple who has the time and finances to travel for their vow renewal. For those not situated as such, is it possible to have a modest ceremony?

One area of expense is all the guests, so are you willing to keep this ceremony private? Additionally, will you both be satisfied if it occurs at a public park, or the church you are members of?

It is possible to hold a vow renewal on a $200 budget, with up to 50 guests!

Clothing

This is your time, your celebration. Why not go casual? Sure, you can bring out the old wedding gown and suit or tux to see if they still fit. Or, each of you can go with a relaxed theme.

This will be predicated on your age, as with other factors such as location and weather. Let’s face it, guys are not reading this, right? If you are, brownie points to you!

If the ceremony will be held during colder weather, I have some news for the ladies. Hosiery is not out of style. Jo-Lynne Shane has a popular blog, and is an advocate of hosiery for formal events when the weather dictates.

Saving the Memories

Did you hire a photographer for your wedding? Perhaps you have some photographs stored away in an album collecting dust on a shelf. Are you interested in taking advantage of all the advancements in technology so you can have your vow renewal ceremony saved as high quality videos?

Finding the right wedding videographers, who will take the time to plan so that they are not an interference during your ceremony, can make the difference between an awkward and smooth experience.

As you both renew your commitment to each other, be certain to include the children in the event. Above all else, do your best to not stress out over the planning.

If you will be taking a trip, or holding the renewal locally, start your research on venues as soon as you can. Do not fret over attire, go casual if you both agree. Finally, ensure that this special occasion can be relived for decades to come.
