Wording and Etiquette for Vow Renewal Invitations

How Wedding and Vow Renewal Invitations Differ

Vow Renewal Invitations

Are you going for round-two with your one-and-only? There are many reasons to be planning for a vow renewal, such as cultural and familial obligations, and your vow renewal invitations differ only slightly from traditional wedding invites. Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary or planning a bigger to-do than your recent low-key nuptials, the etiquette for vow renewals and vow renewal invitations is relatively similar. When you’re choosing a design for your vow renewal invitations, go nuts! You have a vast selection of wedding invites to choose from, and they’re all appropriate. Remember that the tone and formality of your invites will dictate to your guests how they should dress and the formality they should expect.

 

The difference, however, between vow renewal invitations and wedding invitations, is in the wording on the invite itself. You are not inviting anyone to your wedding if you are holding a ceremony with someone you are already married to. What you are holding is a vow renewal, and your vow renewal invitations should reflect that. If you use the word “wedding” on your invite, some guests will feel tricked or lied to when they find out you’re already married. Though it’s an issue of semantics, it’s a bit of etiquette you should make sure to address on your vow renewal invitations.
