Vow renewals are a romantic and loving way to celebrate your significant other. They are not only a chance to remember your wedding but also a great way to get your family and friends together for a celebration. Vow renewals can be planned to your exact tastes and everybody’s vow renewals will, by nature, be different. At Marry Me Ireland we specialise in making sure your ceremony is personal and bespoke. If you are planning a vow renewal for yourselves or for someone close to you, that you think deserves it, here are a few sweet ideas to get your thought process flowing.
While some couples have the privilege of being able to involve any kids they have in their weddings, others do not. Vow renewals are the perfect opportunity to not only celebrate you as a couple, but as a family as well. For some that may mean kids and for others it might mean extended family and even pets.
2. At Home
If your house or garden is big enough to accommodate everyone, at home vow renewals might be a nice idea. Not only will you save money on a venue, it can make it very personal. If there’s a lot of people coming I’d consider booking in a cleaner for afterwards or designate a family or friend to do the honours (If they don’t mind). It’ll relieve a lot of stress the next morning.
3. Throw it Back
If you loved your wedding, why not have a similar themed vow renewal. It’ll be a blast from the past for all your guests that attended both. If you have kept any of the decorations you used, or even something small like the earrings you wore, this can be a nice touch to the day.
4. Updated Photos
A nice idea is to look back at your wedding photos and retake the same shots. Its nice to look back at where you are at in life in each photo. Of course take loads of other photos but a couple of your favourites can be a nice edition.
5. I Still Do
Instead of saying ‘I Do’ in your vows (if you are choosing to have some) it can be a cute idea to say ‘I Still Do’. This idea can be incorporated into other things like the decorations, balloons, and invites. Make it ‘We Still Do’ for an extra flare.
6. Love Stories
Marry Me Ireland puts the couple’s love story at the heart of the ceremony (if the couple wants this) and this idea is sometimes even nicer at vow renewal ceremonies. You will have so many more memories and special moments to look back on, not only with you, both but with your new and old family members and friends.
Here at Marry Me Ireland we have a wide variety of exceptional celebrants who can deliver the vow renewal ceremony of your dreams – traditional, unique or otherwise. So get in touch today and we can start planning your special day!
