As a married couple renewing your wedding vows is a perfect occassion to reflect on the memories you have created and gives you the opportunity to share with your children the love you still have for each other. Can you imagine a more romantic and beautiful image than your children watching you join hands and pledge before them to love honor and cherish all over again? What a great life lesson and a wonderful example to set for your children and grandchildren.
A significant anniversary is a popular time for renewing your wedding vows and sharing your commitment and love to each other. Some couples choose to renew their vows to mark a new beginning after a difficult crisis such as overcoming a serious illness, a period of separation, or simply to reaffirm the tremendous love that has matured and deepend throughout the years.
Whether you are renewing your vows on your anniversary or have chosen a new day to celebrate a new beginning, your renewal ceremony should be casual and fun and completely reflect the two of you. As you walk down the isle together you could play 'your song' rather than the traditional wedding march. Include your children and/or grandchildren by having them read poetry or share a memorable moment of the two of you. If your first wedding was video taped, play it at your reception or place photo albums and framed pictures on a decorated table for your guests to enjoy. Whatever you plan to do, remember the most important thing is to be surrounded by family and close friends who will be honored to share this special occasion with you.
