How to dress for a vow renewal ceremony

Updated February 21, 2017

A vow renewal ceremony is a touching and special ceremony. Traditionally held for the 25th anniversary, you'll want to look your very best for your husband. You're all grown-up now, so show it in your style of dress.

Go for elegance. You may have been a Barbie doll bride in a princess dress years ago, but this is a vow renewal ceremony, not a wedding. Don't embarrass your children by decking yourself out in your original wedding gown, complete with train and veil.

Choose your outfit to match the time of the ceremony. A simple sundress would look lovely for a late morning or early afternoon event on your back deck. For an evening party at the country club, wear a stunning silk cocktail dress.

Wear something appropriate for the location. If you're holding the vow renewal ceremony at your church, you'll want to be a little conservative. Skip the skin baring, tight sheath that shows off your cleavage, and save the sexy look for the second honeymoon night.

Show off in your best colors. Even though white makes you look as though you're recovering from the flu, you probably thought you had to don it for the wedding. There's no restriction now. If you glow in red, don't hesitate to be the center of the attention.

Give some attention to your accessories. Pearls are always appropriate, but you might also choose silver hoops and a matching bracelet. Wear shoes that are pretty, but comfortable, so you can dance the night away.
