Congratulations on your engagement!
Planning your wedding is a very exciting time but it can be daunting. There are so many details to organize, and the ceremony is just one of them. Often, couples don't know where to begin in planning their ceremony, and that is where I come in.
A Vow Renewal or Re-Affirmation Ceremony is a way of reflecting on the journey that a couple has taken in their relationship, and renewing their commitment to each other. Perhaps you are coming up to a milestone anniversary. Or it could be that you chose a simple private ceremony for your wedding day, and now want to celebrate in grander style with all of your family and friends. Some celebrity couples have undertaken vow renewals every single year on their anniversary with increasingly elaborate celebrations (Mariah Carey springs to mind)...well, if you can afford it, why not?
Whatever your motivation for renewing your vows, it's a wonderful way to remind ourselves and our partners of all the reasons we love them.
Our pets play such an important role in our lives and are often regarded as a member of the family. They offer companionship, unconditional love and help ease stress and other ailments. When a beloved pet dies, grief can be quite intense and the hole they leave behind can often take years for us to overcome.
