Renewal of Vows Ceremony
A Renewal of Vows Ceremony is also known as the re-affirmation of vows. This loving ceremony is for any married couple that wishes to celebrate their love for each other by renewing their marriage vows in a uniquely personalized ceremony. This ceremony can be celebrated at any stage of the couple’s marriage, but is often associated with a special wedding anniversary or occasion.
A couple who has experienced a negative event or a strained period in their marriage can then renew their vows and honour their renewed and continuing commitment to each other. It is also the expression of devotion, adoration and love if the couple’s Wedding Day was not what they had hoped for, or their circumstances had prevented them from fulfilling their dreams for a perfect ceremony.
Many couples will include their children and/or special people who have played significant and supportive roles in their lives. These can be members of your bridal party, your family and friends and they can be involved in a special ritual, read a poem or prose or sing a meaningful song. How you plan your ceremony is up to you; whether you wish to reaffirm your commitment and repeat the vows you made to each other in your marriage ceremony or create new ones reflecting upon your achievements as a couple and confirming your ongoing strong commitment of love.
Time is too slow for those who wait,
too swift for those who fear,
too long for those who grieve,
too short for those who rejoice,
but for those who love, time is eternity”
~ Henry Van Dyke
