What type of dress is appropriate for vow renewal?

Are you having a formal affair? Or are you doing something informal and casual?

Any chance you can still fit into your wedding gown? If so, I would wear it, if not, I would at least wear my headress and viel and try to recreate my bouquet. If the gown doesn't fit, perhaps it could be restyled in a more modern way, I would favour making it a skirt and jacket if that is possible, depending on the style
We renewed our wedding vows last Oct. I wore a full length black gown, strapless with ivory accents along the shoulders. My husband wore a black dress jacket with a white dress shirt, red tie and black wranglers.
Keep it simple above all! You are most likely not a youngster if you're renewing vows, so don't try to look like one in your original dress and/or veil! Choose a formal look if you like, but something totally different than an actual wedding gown. Try to make your celebration new and original rather than a tired look back at your glory days, and keep the emphasis on the friends gathered for your party rather than yourselves.
HI my husband and I are planning on renewing our vows for our 10th wedding anniversary, which is in two years. When we got married it was in a court house and only my dad and my kids were there. I had just given birth to our son two weeks before so there was no dress.

My husband and I are renewing our wedding vows for our 5th wedding anniversary. We had a big traditional church wedding and are doing the opposite for the vows. It's just us on a beach with no family, as we want something personal and romantic. The only thing I cannot work out is what to wear. Any ideas?
Wear whatever you want, it is your day, and if it is just the two of you, who cares.
I'm no fashionista, but I think a sundress would be nice. It'll be simple and nice for the occasion.
I would like to wear a gown for the evening party, which probably because it is in India they wear sarees. I need advice on the gown colour, I am confused.
