Renewal of vows- any advice??

19 years ago

I have been an events planner for years but have never hosted a renewal ceremony. I've been to a few and did not like the service. Has anyone here had experience with this?

We are thinking about doing this in 2 years. I'm just never satisfied with the vows portion. It seems like a rehash of the original vows and just feels inappropriate to me. I'm not at all comfortable with saying (or hearing), "Do you take blah blah to have and to hold blah blah...." I just don't think that fits a renewal.

Any suggestions? So far, I'm leaning toward not doing this at all because the wording is just all so uncomfortable for me.

I'm thinking just a blessing ceremony... something I've never seen but could probably conjure up and feel better about.
