Wedding Vow Renewals: The Perfect Special Gift To Say You Still Do


Marriage is a beautiful thing. When after so many years together with Mr. or Mrs. Right you are still as much in love with him or her as the day you were first married, that is the most beautiful thing of all. It’s no wonder, then, that many couples enjoy the prospect of renewing their wedding vows. It’s a beautiful gesture; a public reminder and declaration of a love that will not end and that is ever as strong and steady, and perhaps has become even better with the years. Making the decision to renew your vows is perhaps the easiest part, but when it comes to the etiquette of it all, things can become a little less black and white. For example, when you first said your vows, you exchanged rings, but what should the etiquette be when you say your vows again? There are plenty of articles out there explaining how guests should approach vow renewal gifts, but not too many that inform the happy couple on what they can do. So here is a small guideline for bride and groom gifts to exchange when you are saying “I still do”.

Vow Renewal Gift Ideas For the Bride and Groom

Say it By Engraving It

Of course one of the most special tokens that you have of your marriage and life together so far are your wedding rings. They were there right from the beginning and are the symbol of your union. A nice idea for vow renewals is to take your original wedding rings and each get them engraved with new sentiments. This can be done privately and then is a special surprise, or you can decide on the messages together. Either way, it has the nice added element of allowing you to do the formal ring exchange once again. Of course if you got your wedding rings engraved when you initially got married, then this might not be an option for you.

A Timeless Treasure

Of course, rings are not the only type of jewelry that is suitable for such an occasion. In fact, a quality watch can actually be a perfect memento of your time together. Both practical and sophisticated, a beautiful timepiece can be an extra special gift for an extra special moment. Often, time pieces are thought of as a treat to denote success and as a reward at a certain point in life. What better way to reward each other for the continuing success of your marriage and life together? Narrowing down the brand can be the trickier part. However, there are a lot of great online marketplaces that can help you in your research phase. If you are drawn to luxury time piece brands, like Tag Heuer, then a great place that you can start looking is Chrono 24. The large selection can give you a good idea of which styles you favor, and because they also offer stock from sellers auctions, you can find unique pieces that you may not find in stores.

Memories to Last a Lifetime

Sometimes the best gifts that we can give is more time together. Without a doubt, every married couple looks back on their honeymoon with very fond memories, so why not make some new memories with a new getaway? There’s nothing wrong with having a second honeymoon, and it can actually be exactly this type of special time together that can make the vow renewal feel like the incredibly special moment that it is. But a second honeymoon isn’t like all of your other vacations. Put a lot of thought and time into it and go bold and book those honeymoon suites! After all, a second honeymoon is still a honeymoon. Enjoying an incredible trip together to somewhere that you have been saying for years now that you always wanted to go to, but never have seemed to find the time for, can be a fantastic treat that will not only be enjoyable, but will allow you to create new memories for many more years to come.
