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.
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.
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.
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!
