Ideas for Renewing Your Vows

If you want to celebrate a milestone in your marriage, or just remind each other of your growing love, consider a vow renewal celebration.  You can make it an intimate gathering or even host a huge party. Whether you go big or small, here are a few great ideas for celebrating.    

Destination

Did you fall in love with your honeymoon destination? Plan a return visit! For many couples, taking a trip down memory lane and reminiscing about the romantic newlywed moments is a fantastic to keep the spark alive. Even better, do it in the exact location where your journey as a couple began.  While you are there, find an officiant to renew your vows. It will be a treat to compare honeymoon photos with your visit years later.

Ceremony

Many couples who are celebrating a milestone anniversary like to host a gathering of family and friends.  These ceremonies tend to mimic an actual wedding, but the possibilities are endless. If you like being escorted down the aisle followed by a seated dinner with dancing, this is your chance!  Or, be creative and change things up a little.  Allowing time for friends and family to toast during this type of celebration can affirm how you have grown together over the years.  

Unprompted Fun

If all the planning causes extra stress, but you are still interested in renewing your vows, consider a more spontaneous option.  The Las Vegas strip is filled with Elvis impersonators who would love to take part! But, if blue suede shoes aren’t your thing, think of all the things you and your husband enjoy together. If you like to hike, take it to the top of a mountain and express your unending love with nature.  If bowling is your thing, take it to the lanes and ask them to play your favorite song to follow. Making it your own is what really counts. 

Marriage is a beautiful thing and deserves to be celebrated. There is no right or wrong way to do it, so enjoy yourselves…and congratulations on your time together! 

Fall Wedding Trends

Considering a fall wedding?  It is a lovely time of year to get hitched.  The humidity is low, and the colors of changing leaves are brilliant.  While nature helps your ambiance, here are a few trends and tips for tying this beautiful season into your wedding details.

Deep, Rich Colors

Add accents of color to your cake, table settings, and overhead décor to include the rich tones of autumn. Some brides also like to add their favorite fall color into a hairpiece or other jewelry to stay extra festive.

Seasonal Food

Comfort foods are a hit this time of year.  Consider soups, casseroles, and some macaroni and cheese on the menu with other savory choices.  Alongside your fall festive wedding cake, add a dessert table with s’mores, pumpkin pie, and some hot apple cider to wash it down.

Rustic Vibes

Whether you are hosting your events outside or in, keeping it rustic helps a fall motif.  Wood accents, fall flowers, and candlelight offers a cozy and intimate setting for fall weddings.

Take advantage of all that autumn has to offer when planning your wedding. Anything that brings a warm and cozy atmosphere is sure to be a hit!
