Renewal of your wedding vows
Renewing your marriage vows is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate all that you as a couple have shared and also to affirm all that you are looking forward to. It is a great time to laugh at all the funny things, reminisce on the highlights and perhaps reflect upon the sad times, after all, you’ve beat the odds and made it through 5, 10, 25, 30 years or more. Even if those years have included some rough patches, you have made it together and are still very much in love with each other. Rededicating your lives to one another with a vow renewal is a wonderful way to celebrate this accomplishment.
You may choose to hold a renewal of vows ceremony because you have been married elsewhere, perhaps overseas, and now wish to share a ceremony with your family and friends at home. Or it may be to honour an anniversary of your wedding day or even that you eloped the first time and now you want to gather your friends and family to witness and share your love for each other.
Many people find that they have grown and matured as individual people and the relationship they share with their partner has developed into a wonderful and beautiful bond of love and friendship beyond all they could have imagined. Perhaps you just want to take time out with your children, maybe a weekend away together to acknowledge and celebrate the love you all have as a family.
What would you say to each other at your wedding vow renewal ceremony? Things are almost certainly different now than the way they were the day you got married. So while there’s nothing wrong with saying the same vows you did in your original ceremony, perhaps something a bit more personal would suit you? Remember, there are no rules for the ceremony so this is your chance to really tell your other half how you feel about them in front of the family and friends who are most important to both of you.
In whatever way the moment is celebrated the renewal of vows is a powerful ceremony that can have an impact upon you as a couple, your family and friends. There are certainly fewer pressures on all sides of this ceremony than there are for a wedding ceremony and you will probably feel more relaxed about finding your own unique way in which to express yourselves.
