Renewal of Vows Invitation Wording

Congratulations! You're planning to renew your vows with your spouse. While some couples choose a milestone anniversary in which to renew their commitment to one another – such as a tenth or twenty-fifth – you may take this step at any time. Naturally, you want your friends and family to celebrate this momentous occasion with you. The wording on your renewal of vows invitation will differ from a traditional wedding invitation, but you can still customize it in a way that suits you.

A few things to consider:

  • Make it clear that this is a renewal of vows ceremony by stating it plainly in your invitation. This will help cut down confusion for your guests.
  • Play around with wording since there are several ways to state that this is a renewal of your union.
  • Some guests will assume that no gifts are required for such a ceremony. However, if you'll accept gifts, be sure to include that on your invitation.

Here are some specific examples to get your creative juices flowing.

To make these options fit your needs, just change the names, dates and location information. For additional help on creating your wedding invitation wording, be sure to look for the "Make It Yours" information blocks for additional tips.
