Complete Tips to Vow Renewal Invitation Wording and Good Samples: Whereas you might have sprung for fancy invites for your wedding, you might be more inclined to go the do-it-yourself route for the vow renewal.

Don’t worry – you don’t have to do it all on your own. This article will help you with some general guidelines, along with specific examples of vow renewal invitation wording that you can use.

The tips and examples in this guide are mostly geared toward the vow-renewing couple but are easily adapted to other situations as well.

Vow Renewal Invite Tips

Here’s some general advice on crafting a vow renewal invitation.

Get nostalgic: A vow renewal is all about rekindling those old feelings, so hearkening back to the early days of the marriage is appropriate.

There are at least a couple of ways to do this. One is by adopting the style of a formal wedding invitation (even if the event itself is casual). The other is to include an old wedding photo of the couple.

Mention the anniversary: Vow renewals often happen on the couple’s wedding anniversary. Generally, the vow renewal should be the main focus of the invitation, but the anniversary should be mentioned as well – especially if it’s one of the biggies.

What if you’re renewing your vows in private or in an exotic location, and you just want to invite people to a reception? In that case, you can adapt the wording ideas from this article.


There are a couple of reasons to go with formal wording for the invite: 1) you’ve opted for a more formal event, or 2) you want the nostalgic feeling of a “real” wedding invitation. Either way, here are some wording ideas.
