What To Give A Friend Couple Renewing Their Vows?
You’ve been invited to a wedding, or rather a re-wedding of sorts. Your friend is a going to renew his or her vows and you have been invited as a guest. So what do you bring in this circumstance? Well, it’s already a strange one because they’re not getting married again but they are going through that same experience again. They’ll be at the church, they will both be wearing formal clothes and they will be repeating sacred vows to each other. Yet, it’s not that formal, it’s not that serious overall. It’s an odd one because you’re tempted to be really formal in your gift but the occasion doesn’t call for it. Some people panic and they go with whatever they would gift the couple in the first instance. However there are a few things that would make perfect gifts for the event.
Your something sentimental
Hopefully you went to their wedding in the beginning and took plenty of pictures. You could also snoop around and find pictures of their wedding. Try to find some that weren’t used and perhaps kept away in the original file or folder. Collect all the wedding photos you can and make them into a photo album. You can get creative and write captions underneath each photo to describe what is going on in them. You can have these professionally made or you can DIY it at home. Buying the materials and equipment to make a photo album won’t be difficult as they can be found in every online crafts store. There are also different ways to make the photo album as well so use various online sources to learn how well before the vow renewal ceremony.
A little touch of tropica
The number one gift to any wedding will of course be flowers. People give flowers to wedding couples for many reasons. They’re not flowers just to make the church look nice, they should mean something. For example Hawaiian tropical flowers that can be flown into any state you want, are excellent gifts as they also have a cultural background. You can buy the 26 stem assortment which has a variety of bright and vibrant flowers to various strong and dark green leaves. Full of life and beautifully put together, these would go well for a less formal party or wedding ceremony. Unlike the formal bouquet that would be in white, red or yellow, these flowers will be pink, orange and purple to name a few.
A second round
You can also book your friend and their partner a second honeymoon. Second honeymoons are now big business as more and more people want to relive that first moment they had years and years ago. Make sure you get to know how much time they each have off work now that their lives are in full swing.
Renewing vows is not as serious as first getting married but that doesn’t mean you cannot get your friend or family member a brilliant gift. A photo album of their first wedding full of pictures they haven’t seen before is top shelf.
