What are some creative ways to renew your wedding vows?
Renewing your vows is a way for you and your partner to declare your love for one another all over again. Getting your vows renewed expresses the fact that you’re still interesting in keeping the commitment you pledged to your significant other all those years ago. Are you thinking about reaffirming your love in a special way? Cupid has some advice:
1. Go somewhere exotic: If your original wedding was close to home, take your renewal ceremony as an opportunity to plan a trip! Renew your vows in Hawaii or Italy! If there’s a place you and your partner always wanted to visit, consider using that location for your special day.
2. Make it a surprise:¬†Hide your vow renewal plans from your spouse until the big day! Trick your partner into getting dressed up and lead them to the renewal location. Make sure your friends and family show up ahead of time and have your vows in hand. This will surely be a surprise your loved one will enjoy!
3. Write your own vows: If you used traditional vows during your wedding, switch things up a bit and write your own this time around. Your personalized vows can say just about anything you want. Reminisce over your first date or talk about the birth of your first child. This is the time to look back on those special memories you and your partner share together and remind them you still love them just as much as you did when you first said “I do.”
