A vow renewal has always been one of the most special ways to celebrate your love with your partner: giving yourselves a second chance to stand up in front of family and friends to once again declare your love for each other is fun and romantic. Traditionally, vow renewals have happened on big anniversaries (think 10, 20, 30, even 50 years), but more recently, it’s not uncommon to hear about them happening a year or two after a couple tied the knot.
Regardless of the reason behind your vow renewal, you probably need a great dress to wear. While generally still formal, these occasions do tend to be more relaxed than weddings. However, there are no rules! If you didn’t get to have a huge wedding the first time around, this might be your chance to do exactly that. In that case, you might be looking for a more traditional wedding gown.
If you want to keep things more on the casual side, there are plenty of options. You can stick with a bridal white, of course, but you could also branch out and wear champagne, ivory, blush, blue, or florals. You can play around with different textures and silhouettes, opt for a two-piece outfit or a jumpsuit, or wear a shorter dress. Have fun with your look and wear something that is comfortable and makes you feel good.
