Anyone else?

Hey everyone! It's my first post here on the boards and I just had a question. So I got knocked up at 19, and we went to the DMV and got our marriage license, and that was it, no vows, no nothing! So here we are like 4 years later, and I'm going to have a vow renewal, aka the wedding I never got. Anyone else done this???

Um, I saw somebody say that the other day.  I can't remember who, though . . . .

I also got knocked up at 19....but I think you were asking about the vow renewal? LOL. My husband and I were married on the 4th of July, 2007 in a cute little Vegas chapel, just the 2 of us and we are celebrating our 2 year anniversary with a wedding this year. To us, this is the real deal, not just a vow renewal so we're all excited.


Welcome to PW.


OH, did you say you got married at the DMV??

I wasn't asking about the getting knocked up part, just the doing an actual wedding/vow renewal a few years after getting married.

We got married in a JOP service last summer while I was on the east coast visiting him. Our wedding is still in May, one day after our 10 month mark of being married. I like to blame it on the whole military deal, but in reality, we were being spontaneous and I wouldn't have it any other way. ;]

I been married for 7 years and the first wedding was very small majority of my family wasn't there since we just went to church and got hitch due to certain circumstances.  So on our 7th wedding anniversary this year we get wedding attire along with our children and hire a photographer for a post wedding session and it was absolutely lovey.  My hubby and I decided we will have our dream wedding on our 10th Wedding anniversary in 3 years time and I will finally get the chance to walk down the aisle.  I was told a wedding dress is not suppose to be the dress but I want to wear the ivory dress i wore for photo sessions and it have a train.  AAny suggestions about the do and don't of renewal of Vows ceremony and reception.  To be honest this will be my first real Dream wedding.
