2Nd Wedding Anniversary Vow Renewal

So.... we decided that we're going to renew our vows every year from here on out. Either as something small and private or something larger and fun depending on how we feel. DH and I got married October 11, 2019. And as we all know 2020 the entire world got turned upside down. Then this past year my son was kidnapped and kept from the family for two months by his estranged father (we have my son back now, he's OK). We've been through so much trauma the last two years of our marriage we really feel that we want to reaffirm every year our commitment and remind ourselves that we're together for the long run. Sentimental and goofy? Probably. But guys... it's been a rough few years! We made this decision about a week ago and it felt like serendipity that there is going to be a mass vow renewal at Ohio Ren Festival a few days after our anniversary for Romance Weekend. We had been planning to go to celebrate before we found out about Romance Weekend so it just feels perfect. I'm so excited now. I was also looking and that venue has wedding packages so something to keep tucked in the back of my mind for later. This year we're going to do it on the DL but we're going to incorporate elements of our wedding and our lives into it to make it more than just something cheesy. Although it'll be cheesy and I'm good with that. So I've got 3 weeks to plan this fun ceremony experience! Time to get shopping!

    Woo Hoo!!! 🎉🎉🎉 I finally found someone else who’s going to do what FH and I discussed…. renew our marital commitment every year with some sort of celebration.


    We were originally a 2020 couple who postponed to 2021 (and went through many changes along the way). So, getting down the aisle has been a roller coaster. However, well before covid, this was already a plan we agreed on after we were engaged in January 2019.
    Our wedding (which recently became an elopement) is taking place on October 31, 2021. So the date already makes for a perfect time to have annual parties. Since we’re eloping with no guests in attendance, we’re going to have a celebration for our 1st anniversary next year. Following that, my thought is to celebrate big (ceremony, venue, DJ, etc.) every 5th year. Then have our annual party at home the years in between.
    This really isn’t out of the norm for us because (pre-covid), FH and I hosted at least 3 elaborate parties at our home/backyard each year. So it’s something we’re already known for doing.
    This is a second marriage for both of us. So we understand the importance of constantly putting effort into the marriage. So, I don’t feel there’s anything cheesy about taking time to reaffirm and celebrate our commitment, because it’s very easy for relationships to quickly become complacent.
    Congrats and enjoy!!!!

    Very exciting! I am planning to do one for our 20th in 3 years but I like your idea of doing something every year too. It's very romantic so it sounds like the Romance weekend is a great place to start Smiley smile Glad you have your son back by the way and that it is all ok now Smiley smile.

    Exactly! I think especially after the last couple years it’s come to the forefront of my mind to keep our relationship first and worth celebrating.
