Renewing your wedding vows can be an effective way to reintroduce romance into your marriage and show your spouse how much she still means to you. While you can just ask your spouse if she thinks it's a good idea, there is more romance and fun to be had by planning out a vow renewal proposal that either reminds you both of your initial engagement or surpasses it in some way. Planning a vow renewal proposal can be a creative process.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Visit the place you initially proposed if you can. See if it is still a suitable location for a proposal, since you may want to recall history and propose the vow renewal from the same location. If this is not feasible, consider places similar to the initial spot or another location that has a personal meaning for you both.

  2. 2

    Write down what you want to say ahead of time. You won't be reading from the paper when the moment arrives, but writing a basic outline helps you to say everything you want without stumbling over words or forgetting anything. The more you rehearse your actual proposal, the less likely you'll make a mistake.

  3. 3

    Buy a ring or other piece of jewellery your spouse will appreciate that becomes a substitute for a new engagement ring. If your spouse does not like jewellery, pick something else romantic that you can present at the time of the proposal.

  4. 4

    Research what you want to do for the actual renewal ceremony. If want to include a second honeymoon, discuss it fully with your spouse. Have a general idea of what you plan since this could come up when you propose. Consider what is economically feasible so you don't get turned down for not being practical.
