Life has generally been good to you. This is not to say you have not had your share of ups and down but generally, you have been able to sail through without any major setback. One area of your life that you are so thankful is your marriage. It’s been a wonderful experience. Like all other relationships, there have been difficult times but you and your spouse have managed to go through them without leaving any permanent scars.
Today you feel like you need to give a special thanksgiving for being able to remain married for all these years. In fact you know of so many people who got married after you did but whose marriage didn’t last long. You and your spouse are happy to renew your vows before your friends and family once again. Now is the time to start planning. At least you want to avoid all those mistakes that you committed during the initial wedding. You know you have to get a renewal of vows celebrant, get a venue for the event, and choose a caterer, event decorator and all other wedding vendors. It is actually good that you are already thinking in this light. However, you need something extra to make the day real fun. Below we have put together some ideas that will help make the day worth remembering.
Do a recap of your initial wedding day
Some years ago, you and your spouse decided to come together and become husband and wife. Today many years after you are celebrating your time together, admittedly not everyone who will be present at the renewal ceremony may have been present at your wedding. You must have made new friends along the way. Therefore to give your friends a taste of what happened on the wedding itself, make a short video that includes the pre wedding preparations and the wedding itself. Remember, the tip here is to keep it short.
Add a slide show of milestones during the past years
Hopefully after the wedding there have been some memorable events. This can be wedding of other siblings, birth of children into the family and promotions at work. Collate the different pictures and show your guests a bit of what your life has been like ever since the wedding.
Hire a photobooth
While you must have planned to make have a professional photographer for the day, do not forget to get a photobooth. Photo booth is great for keeping your guests busy before the party proper starts. Get a photo booth that allows your friends and family to leave messages for you. They should also be able to take home a picture.
When planning for your renewal event also try to get the same bridal train hat you used some years back. Hopefully they will still be alive and although they must have grown, you can still use them in the wedding procession.
