What To Wear For 25th Anniversary Vow Renewal Dress

Help! What do I wear to my 25th anniversary vow renewal celebration?

Advice please for my renewal dress. We are celebrating our 25th anniversary this summer with a renewal in our church at noon, then reception following at a restaurant. Just not sure what to wear. Our 3 daughters will attend with me. I was thinking a dressier sundress for me, and sundresses for our adult and teenage girls. Is this too casual being held in our church?

Congratulations on your silver anniversary!
Although the vow renewal is usually not a formal event, a sundress may be a little too casual, especially for church. If you have a bolero jacket to go over the dress then perhaps. Here is a page about dresses for wedding vow renewal ceremonies that might help you choose.

Congratulations! And, thank you for having the proper focus on what this ceremony is supposed to be–not a wedding, but a reaffirmation of a marriage. This is refreshing 🙂

I agree that the dresses might be a bit casual. But, you are going in the right direction. Great advice, by the way. Some sort of cover-up is perfect.

And, please remember that if you are inviting guests to a restaurant for your party, you are expected to pay for them. I imagine you know this, but I have to fold this in for those who don’t.
