Vow renewal ceremonies are a special and romantic way to show how much you love and care for your other half. There are plenty of reasons to have a vow renewal ceremony from making it to a big wedding anniversary, to wanting to celebrate with your loved ones, to getting past a hard time in your life. If you’ve decided to have a vow renewal with your husband or wife, but you’re unsure of how you want to go about it, you’ve come to the right place. Marry Me Ireland has performed hundreds of vow renewals over the last few years, each one more special than the last.
A Family Affair
Getting your whole family involved in your vow renewal ceremony can make it really meaningful. If you have kids now, but didn’t when you got married, why not make them a big part of this special day? Have your kids and possibly even their kids, if you’re grandparents, give readings, walk you down the aisle, say poems, be your bridesmaids or groomsmen and enjoy the day with you. I’m sure they would be more than happy to be involved and it will be a day you will all remember forever.
An Intimate Ceremony
Another way to make your day meaningful and special, is to keep it extremely intimate. If you don’t need anyone there but the two of you, then why not keep it that way. This is your day after all so it can be tailored to your exact wants and needs. Having a vow renewal solely with your other half is one of the more romantic ways to do it. The celebrant will make it all about you and your love for one another.
A Blast from the Past
We love the idea of having a throwback vow renewal. Theme it exactly like your wedding and give your guests a blast from the past. Try hire out the same venue, eat the same food, use the same wedding playlist (or if you don’t have it use songs that were around then), and get your guests to dress from the era you were married. Fill the venue with pictures from your wedding and try style some photographs to match your wedding album.
Your Love Story
When we perform a wedding at Marry Me Ireland, the celebrant will talk about your love story up to that point in your lives. However, at a vow renewal there are so many more stories and memories to look back on. It might be a nice idea to centre your vow renewal around your lives up until this point. Look back on the moments you’ve shared and look forward to your forever future together.
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!
