My first marriage ceremony consisted of a trip to Las Vegas and an Elvis impersonator who quickly “left the building" after the ceremony. When it was time for my daughter to marry, I relied on every resource on the Internet and books I could find, essentially because I had no idea of wedding etiquette, let alone invitation rules.
As the time approaches for me to find the correct wording for my invitations for the renewal of my wedding vows, I again became flustered. So again, my search began. Should I use romantic invitation verses, traditional, or something out of the ordinary?
If you’re renewing your wedding vows, invitation etiquette is even more important these days than in the past, especially with so many families that include extended families of their own. Your son may have a new wife and from this marriage came new kids, plus the children (your grandchildren from his original marriage).
Another stumbling block we face is if we suggest our children send out the renewal vow invites—how is this done and what is the correct wording to use? Let’s look at some of the traditional and the quirky when it comes to invites for renewing your wedding vows.
