We very much focus, as an industry, on those first time brides; so we thought we’d switch it up a bit at Premier Weddings and write a blog post dedicated to those couples that are renewing their vows. There are many ideas for a vow renewal wedding that are unique to the situation and below are a few of our favourites.
A great theme idea is along the lines of ‘we still do’ or ‘after all this time, always.’ A few years might have passed since you got married the first time around, so why not display a timeline of the most important moments that you’ve shared. This can be pictures, text or a mixture of the two. You could have a custom runner made for your aisle with a timeline down the centre of it. The idea being that as you walk down it you’re walking through your timeline to the present day.
Your family might have grown during this time. Include your children in the ceremony and write your own vows that tell stories of your life together. Only you know what is most important to your family!
A great idea for the photography at your wedding is to recreate some of the photos from your first wedding. This can be a fun activity for you and your guests to get involved with and is great to see how your returning guests have changed over the years. Take photos holding signs that say ‘still his’ or ‘still hers.’
If you went down the traditional route last time you got married why not go a bit wilder with your theming this time? Have a movie themed wedding and call it ‘Take 2.’ Hire a red carpet from us at Premier and have your guests walked down it through lines of hired in paparazzi for a fun way of getting pictures of your guests.
We’ve all seen online or on TV people having a surprise wedding where they invite their guests to a party and they arrive at a wedding ceremony. Why not make your vow renewal a surprise? Tell us at Premier your vision and have us plan your day. It could be a surprise for your guests, a surprise for your other half or even a surprise for everyone involved! You could leave all of the details to us and just show up on the day!
