18 Vow Renewal Dresses From Minimalist to Glam




Here are 18 Vow Renewal Dresses From Minimalist to Glam, from Brides,




Deciding to get married the first time around is a big deal, and it’s certainly a cause for celebration. But when you’ve had a few years of practice, gone through all the inevitable ups and downs of marriage, and decide to marry the same person again with a vow renewal? Well, that’s a whole different kind of party.

This is a momentous occasion! Not only have you followed through on your original vows, but you’re setting new intentions for your relationship, and for that, you deserve a bridal look just as evolved and fresh as your marriage. Since it’s the second time around you can toss out all the first wedding rules. While we are partial to bridal white, you’ve probably been there done that. For your vow renewal dress, feel free to experiment with color. Blush, something blue, and floral dresses are all beautiful ways to put a modern spin on your second wedding dress.

If you did the big wedding with the big dress the first time, you might want to opt for something more simple for your second trip down the aisle. A minimalist wedding dress is perfect for a smaller, more relaxed ceremony. even though these dresses are characterized by their clean lines and simple silhouettes, their elegant fabrics, beautiful embellishments, and sexy additions like a slit or low back will still make you feel like a bride.

For brides who went with a civil or small ceremony the first time around, a vow renewal is your shot at a big celebration and that means a big dress! While your princess dreams may have faded by now, and a ball gown may no longer be on your mood board, there are still some statement-making dresses that are worthy of your formal occasion. From actual wedding dresses to evening wear with all the tulle and beading you can imagine, there is something to fulfill your second wedding dress dreams.

Once you land on a dress (or maybe a jumpsuit?) apply the same modern philosophy you took with your look to your accessories. If you didn’t do it the first time, you may have missed the opportunity to rock a cathedral length veil, but if you still want the look, a blusher is a great option. Alternatively, flower crowns, headbands, barrettes and hats make for a super chic addition to any look.

At the end of the day, the most important thing to keep in mind is that you have a love so nice you’re saying ‘I do’ twice! Celebrate your vow renewal with a dress just as special as your relationship from this edit below.
