Planning for a Renewal of Vows?

My husband and I are going to renew our wedding vows for our 10th anniversary. It will be on December 16th to be exact. We do not have much money and want to be as frugal as we can be. Anyone have any suggestions for a frugal location? Thanks in advance.

Why not in your home or church?

This may sound cynical but unless vows have been broken, I don't believe they need to be renewed. And as far as frugal, you really only need the two of you if it's truly about renewing your vows.


Not being unkind; just my two cents.

I also think it's rather silly to renew vows and don't think I would ever bother to attend one, let alone give gifts and/or cards! Only reason I can think of anyone having one is the marriage is in stress and rather than get to the root of their problems, One or both think renewing vows would do something to help instead of seeing a marriage counselor. It certainly doesn't make you any more married than you already are. .

You never know what couples have gone through i their marriages to bring them to the place to renew their vows. After years of heartache, we turned everything over to the Lord, who made us love each other again We want to confirm it before God and our children and family.


Many never thought we should or would make it. We did not..God made it for us. As for gifts, there will be no gifts. So do not criticize.It is a beautiful thing and a personal choice

Im going to renew my vows in December. We are doing so because my family and friends were unable to attend our first wedding (it was 2500 miles away from my home, being military, we move a lot, but we are stationed near MY home for a little while, so now my friends and family can join us). So, this way they can attend our renewal. I dont expect/want gifts/cards/etc. I just want friends and family to show up and have a good time.


If you knew me, you'd understand why I'd want to do it, and if you didn't want to attend, well then fine, I wouldnt want you there. I want true friends there. We aren't trying to be "more" married. Just celebrate our love, with my family, now that we can, since we didn't 12yrs ago.

Hi Nancy,

Our church offers this opportunity at Valentine's Day. We have done this many times and it means so much to us. We do not invite guests because this is vows we made to each other with God in attendance. No matter how you do it, I am confident it will be a special moment in both your lives.

I agree. My husband has broken his vows, so this would apply to us, but I If we renew them, it will be in our Pastor's office. We are already married, it is stupid to do the whole wedding over. Some friends of mine divorced and then remarried after 3 years. They went to the Pastor and he married them an hour later, after they went to the courthouse and came back with the license. It was right in his office too.
