I would love to see pictures of the dress you ladies wore for your vow renewal or for a 2nd, or casual wedding ceremony.
Here is the dress I thought I'd wear for a vow renewal on our Sept '11 cruise to Alaska (dieting to fit into it, and getting closer).
I'd like to see pics of what your DH wore too.
Thanks
Susan

Hi!
That is very pretty I love it.

We may be doing a vow-renewal on our next cruise. It will be 15 years (2nd marriage for both of us)

I will post a picture if I find something.

Congrats!

Hi - I wore a deep teal (called Ocean by mftr) in lace with sequins for my 50th wedding vow renewal. It was beautiful and I didn't want white or off-white since this color is terrible on me. I spent more than I usually would, but it was worth every penny. So was the Vow Renewal package I bought from Celebrity. This was on the Summit in June 2009. The Captain did the ceremony and everything was perfect.

Good Luck

Your dress is lovely. How exciting for you! I know you will have a wonderful time!


I just purchased this dress to wear at our upcoming Vow renewal this Summer. (not a cruise) I do not plan to wear the bolero/shrug top. I just don't like the way it looks. The dress is strapless, but it will be Summer and I should have good tan, so hopefully it will work.

I also purchased a blue sash to wear and these are the shoes that I bought. However, I am thinking that I might order the shoes to match the sash. Would love to hear thoughts about the shoes....should I wear the white or be adventurous and go with the blue?


I decided to go with a tea length dress as we will be climbing really steep steps. I will carry Drew's Airman's bible in place of a bouquet. He will be in his dress blues. I'm so excited!Just 166 days to go!

Thanks everyone.
Boop3, this will be our 21st wedding anniversary. Third times a charm for us, LOL.
We will be on the Coral Princess to Alaska, can't wait, this is our 3rd cruise, 2nd on Princess, one on Carnival.
Drew's wife, lovely dress, I really like the blue at the waist, and I love the shoes. I haven't thought much about the shoes I am going to wear yet.
Where did you get them?

Anyone else want to post a picture of your dress? I'd really like to see what you all wore, and what you did with your hair. ;-)

Although I have already bought the white shoes that I posted earlier, I decided to go ahead and order these blue shoes to see how they look with my dress. I love this shoe....just afraid it might be a little to high heel.

Once the shoes arrive, I will try them with my dress and see if I like the white or the blue better.

Thanks, Drew's Wife. The ceremony was very moving and everything was handled beautifully. Congrats on your upcoming renewal. Can't wait to see your pictures.

By the way, my dress was a pale silver with very intricate beading. I think it shows up white in the pics.

Gayle Cool, I love the lace dress, where is your ceremony going to be?

Drews Wife, don't forget to post a pic of your dress with both pairs of shoes when you get them. I think the dress will be beatuful with either pair.

Our Turn, I love your pictures, thanks for sharing.

Beautiful dresses, ladies. Loved seeing the different styles.

Is it very common to renew your vows? Is there a certain anniversary that is typical for vow renewal? Just curious. I don't think I know anyone in my family that's done this yet.

I think the silver and golden anniversary is usually customary....but I think it is something that a couple can do anytime. It doesn't even have to be on an anniversary. I know couples who have renewed their vows right before their spouse is being deployed or upon arriving home from a deployment.
