Advice from-Prosperity Mansion & Farm, a Frederick Maryland wedding venue

What is a vow renewal- A vow renewal is a heartfelt ceremony where a couple reaffirms their commitment and love for each other. It's a beautiful way to celebrate milestones in a marriage, such as anniversaries or overcoming challenges together. During a vow renewal, couples can customize their ceremony to reflect their journey and growth together, creating new memories and strengthening their bond This special occasion allows couples to celebrate their love and commitment by exchanging vows in front of family and friends or a large group to celebrate their journey.

How many people are typically invited to a vow renewal?

Great question! The correct answer is, as many as your heart desires. Renewing one’s vows can look different to many couples. Some envision a small intimate ceremony with just the couple. Others opt for their closest family and friends to be present. And then there is the couple that wants to go all out and invite hundreds.

Some couples never had a memorable ceremony. Maybe they went to the courthouse or got married in someone’s backyard. Now, this is their time to celebrate and have all of the bells and whistles! So, it’s from two to hundreds that can be at your ceremony. The sky is your limit as well as your pocketbook.

Should I write my own vows?

As an officiant, I am honored to preside over a couples wedding. I officiate over many Courthouse weddings, Elopements, Intimate weddings as well as Vow Renewals. I always ask the couple, if there are any special, funny, loving, antidotes that I can incorporate in the vows. I feel that it is more meaningful when the vows are unique and have special touches that takes the couples journey into account. Saying that, I encourage the couple, if they feel comfortable to write their own vows or at least to be prepared to say something from the heart to each other. However, some people simply feel uncomfortable for many reasons, they prefer that I handle the whole thing. So, the bottom line is yes, speak from your heat but only of that suits you and you feel comfortable. Heartfelt vows typically bring tears to everyone’s eyes.

Should I have a reception after I renew my vows?

That is a personal preference. However, most people do have something following the vow renewal ceremony. If it's just the couple, they generally have a romantic luncheon or dinner planned and maybe a special night or more away from home. Some actually go away on the honeymoon that they never had or the honeymoon that they wanted to relive.

Smaller more intimate groups can either remain here at our wedding venue or book the Small / Micro wedding package. Instead of going out to lunch or dinner, they can have it catered with anything from heavy Hors d” oeuvres to a full meal or they may bring their own food for their guests. That way they can continue the party, with music playing, dancing, playing games at our amazing game area. Or they may leave and have continue the celebrate elsewhere.

Should I expect gifts?

It’s not customary for guests to bring gifts to a vow renewal ceremony as they might for a wedding.

However, if you do want a gift, you may register and let the invitees know or say something like in lieu of a gift kindly contribute to our honeymoon fund.

Typically, the couple already has established their home and life together, so they have all of the items that are given as wedding gifts.



Should we plan a honeymoon?

Planning a honeymoon after renewing your vows can be a wonderful way to celebrate your continued commitment to each other. Is there a sentimental place that you’ve longed to visit? What a better time to set those plans in motion. For some couples this may be the honeymoon that they never had.

A honeymoon can be the perfect conclusion to your vow renewal, offering an opportunity to relax and spend quality time together. But most importantly is the fact that you renewed your vows and your commitment together. Anything else that is within your budget and comfort zone is icing on the wedding cake.

Remember, the goal is to celebrate your love and enjoy each other’s company. Make sure to plan some downtime to simply relax and be together.

In conclusion- A vow renewal is a beautiful opportunity to reflect on the past, cherish the present, and look forward to the future together. Whether you're marking a milestone, overcoming challenges, or simply wanting to express your love all over again. A vow renewal is a meaningful way to rekindle the flame.
