Vow Renewals – Top 5 Reasons Couples Say “I DO… Again”
Why renew your vows? There are many reasons why couples decide to have vow renewals, what it really boils down to is to celebrate their love! With divorce rates climbing worldwide, some couples who have stuck it out are finding ways to celebrate — and possibly strengthen — their relationships through a celebratory, fun, public affirmation.
These re-commitment parties, often called “renewal of vows”, are typically led by an officiant and are intended to signal to their family and friends that their marriage still works. The Knot has a great checklist if you are thinking about renewing: How to Renew Your Wedding Vows so does FTD: Vow Renewal Guide: 17 Rules and Tips To Follow.
Here are the top 5 reasons couples do it and why you should too:
#5 A fresh start
Marriage is not always easy. Vow renewals can be like a fresh start for a married couple.
#4 Have a wedding with your children
Your children are the most important people in your life, and you want to share this special moment with them. Now that your kids are old enough to comprehend the love you have for one another, you want to show them what it looks like and include them in the ceremony.
#3 Have your Dream Wedding (now that you can afford to!)
Planning a wedding the second time around can be a whole lot less stressful. With the stress factor gone you will be able to focus more on doing things you didn’t have a chance to and you might be able to splurge more on the kind of elaborate ceremony you really wanted.
#2 Celebrating a special milestone anniversary
Milestones should be celebrated, 10, 15, 20 years or more is worth acknowledging and worth an unforgettable party!
And the top reason couples are renewing their wedding vows is:

We Specialize in All-Inclusive
At first, we thought all-inclusive meant just having all the infrastructure ready to go for the couple, so what looks like such a simply beautiful, largely outdoor wedding could be as clean and simple as the lines of the tent. There should be no hassles about getting in all the infrastructure and having it ready for your wedding. We did not want to witness a rental truck showing up at the last minute and a mom or bridesmaid, or the couple themselves, setting up chairs and tables–even mowing the yard–on the morning of the wedding. These were all things Jeanne witnessed repeatedly over the years. No wonder people were exhausted before their wedding even began…
