Should You Take Your Vow Renewal On The Road?
Are you hoping to celebrate a milestone anniversary with a vow renewal ceremony to reaffirm your commitment as husband and wife? Not sure whether you should take the show on the road to combine the big day with that second honeymoon you’ve also been dreaming of?
This is a quandary faced by many couples (and sometimes those who plan surprise renewals on their behalf). Here are some questions you can ask yourself to help determine if a destination vow renewal ceremony is really for you:
- How much time do I have to plan? – If your upcoming renewal is only a few weeks away, trying to take the party to a particular destination that isn’t super close to home could be tricky. If you have a few months, at least, to plan, you will find the world likely is your oyster. Do keep in mind, however, that high-demand resorts and boutiques might be booked unless you reach out as soon as possible through an anniversary and honeymoon travel advisor.
- How much money can I spend? – Destination vow renewals can be truly spectacular, but they often do depending on the budget you have available. Consider the potential costs. If you’re not sure what your dream celebration might cost, just consult a travel advisor for help.
- How much can my guests be expected to pay? – If you’re planning on asking friends and family to come along and witness the big day, this is a very important question. Should you be planning to foot the travel bill for everyone, the answer is likely up to you. If your friends and family, however, will be expected to pay to attend, you might want to be very conscious of the anticipated costs.
- What is required to travel to my desired destination? – Want to spend your second honeymoon basking in the sun on a beach in Tahiti as your friends and family gather to see you renew your vows? Be sure to get all your documentation requirements in order well in advance. Make sure your invited guests know what’s required, too, and that they have plenty of time to secure things like passports, visas and even pre-travel vaccinations.
Going away for a vow renewal ceremony is a wonderful way to celebrate. To find out if this fits for you, work directly with our anniversary travel advisors to pin down the details. Keep in mind, even if you decide to stay close to home for the ceremony itself, your advisor can help you plan the ideal second honeymoon no matter what!
