Did anyone do a vow renewal 2 years after they got married the first time? My husband and I got married on September 16th 2018 and we have recently started talking about doing a vow renewal. How much did it cost for you to renew your vows?
After I was married I saw some gorgeous resorts in the Caribbean that would do a private vow renewal for a few hundred bucks. Of course, the resorts were expensive but if you wanted a luxury romantic getaway, with a vow renewal thrown in, that seems amazing. 🏝 🌅
I think that is personal choice if you feel wanting to do that you should do it. I think it is cheaper to redo vows than a wedding only because it may be for just the couple and not a huge amount of people. you can do a destination too.
My husband and I talked about this last night actually. We have decided we will plan to rent a beach house. This way we can have the vow renewal, invite some friends/family and hire a different photographer (all our wedding photos are a disaster). Also I wanted our wedding at the beach, but due to having family who were unable to travel we settled for something closer to home. I think we are going to wait until our 5th or 10th anniversary to do this, since we just bought a house.
Just as with any event, it costs as much or as little as you want it to. No different than planning your original wedding. You could do a courthouse renewal which would cost the least or go all out and spend many thousands.
I've never heard of anyone doing it so soon after marriaige. usually 10+ years but if you want to do it i don't see why not! are you planning on doing it the same place you were married originally or a new place?
I could understand doing it privately for each other, frequently. But I would never celebrate another couple's anniversary unless a major milestone one, after 20,25, 40 or 50 years. Some years we have few weddings, but many we go to 4-8, occasionally 12-17. I can't work up any interest in celebrating renewals for already married people. If people want to have a big party, for no reason except to have a big fun time, Great! I'll go. But not versions of a wedding, again for the same couple. Enough .
I can see where some couples would want or feel the need to have a vow renewal before 20 years. Especially those couples who have overcome some things, which they thought may break up their marriage. Everyone's circumstance is different, but I do think it's important to realize that not everyone you invite will attend a vow renewal like they do weddings.
