There’s plenty of reasons for renewing your vows and planning an epic celebration! Perhaps you eloped in Vegas the first time or your wedding day wasn’t the intimate event you hoped for.

Whether you’re looking to celebrate 20 magical years of wedded goodness or want a big do-over, check out 8 Fun Ideas for Renewing Your Vows:

Get Creative. Or Funky. Or Something.

Maybe you too nervous wear that tiara or otherwise encrust yourself with glitter the first time around.  Now is the time to embrace your inner wild child and get funky! Wear that light pink gown you dreamed about, or go the “zombie bride” route and encourage everyone in the “wedding party” to follow suit.

This is your big chance to do things your way and be the fantasy bride you always wanted to be!

Make it a Destination Event

Did your first wedding day get so big you felt it wasn’t about you anymore? Plan a destination vow renewal and dedicate the entire thing to you and your hubby. When renewing vows, you don’t have to worry about inviting everyone you’ve ever met, plus their extended family. Make it as intimate as you want and renew at a fabulous ski resort, or a tropical island, or even a European city! Saying ‘I Do’ once again will provides that chance to feel like you two are the only ones in the room, because this time 200 people aren’t watching your every move.

Get the Kiddies Involved

Do you look at your wedding album and wish your spawn could have been there to help celebrate? Include them when renewing your vows and make them part of this special ceremony. If renewing vows after your first decade of marriage, ask your young son or daughter to be the ring bearer or flower girl. On the other hand, if your children are teens or adults, ask them to give you away or stand with you as you say ‘I Do.’

Throw a Big Shindig

It’s been 2o or 40 years since the big day, and you’ve probably acquired a lot more friends and family members. So why not throw a huge shindig after renewing your vows and let everyone know to stop by whenever they want, in whatever they want. Tell them to forget dress code and gifts, and just to bring their dancing shoes and party ‘tudes.
