Ideas for Vow Renewal Invitations

Vow renewal ceremonies range from elaborate and formal to casual and informal. As a result, there are plenty of options when it comes to vow renewal invitations. Here are some pointers that will help you choose the right wording and style for yourinvitations no matter how big or small the occasion might be.

A vow renewal ceremony may be hosted by the married couple or by their children. When hosted by the couple, invitations could be very straightforward and to the point whenever the occasion is rather informal. An example of how such an invitation might be worded is:

[message_box title=”Example Vow Renewal Invitation” color=””]

The pleasure of your company is requested at the vow renewal ceremony of John and Debbie Smith

Highgrove Christian Church Cincinnati, Ohio

on Friday the fourth of April at 7:00 pm Reception immediately following

Casual attire-gifts not required RSVP by 26 February 2014

[/message_box]

For a more formal event that is hosted by the couple, the invitation may read something similar to:

[message_box title=”Formal Event Vow Renewal Invitation” color=””]

Together they have found a friendship, raised a family, and built a beautiful marriage You are most warmly invited to the reaffirmation of John and Debbie Smith as they renew wedding vows on Friday, April 4, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. Highgrove Christian Church

Cincinnati, Ohio

[/message_box]

When children host the event on behalf of their parents, the invitation may list each child’s name or simply read “the children of”. When the children who are hosting the event are all products of the marriage, it is appropriate to say simply “the children of”. If some of the children are from previous marriages, it could be better to list each child’s name individually.

Vow renewal invitations normally contain additional information that is not included in wedding invitations. For example, the couple may wish to let others know that gifts are not required and that dress for the occasion will be casual. Some aspect of these invitations may be similar, as they may also contain RSVP cards or directions to the reception.

A common question involving vow renewal invitations involves who they should be sent to. Since vow renewal ceremonies are typically much smaller gatherings, invitations are normally sent only to close friends and family members of the couple. Individual invitations do not need to be sent to everyone in attendance, as a single invitation would be sufficient when including all the members of a church or civic group.
