Hi! Okay so my now husband and I have been together for 9.5 years. In June of 2021 We had a legal situation arise and decided it would be best we go ahead and get married. So we “ eloped” in July with our parents and siblings right after my now sister in laws baby shower. We didn’t exchange personal vows. Just enough to make it legal.
It’s complicating me up inside that I wasn’t able to have ALL of my amazing friends and family with us. And my family was rather upset as well but some understood.
So now what I’m wanting to do is on our 1 year have a “ vow renewal” and reception. I’ve bought a beautiful dress out of impulse but mind you it is for sure THE ONE!
Also keep in mind we eloped in the middle of the DELTA outbreak. So we technically had a COVID wedding. I’ve seen where other couples are having “ redo weddings” and it being just as celebratory.
My family keeps saying we have pick and whose what traditions we want. I really want some sort of shower. Seeing how COVID has ruined so much for us. Sons 1st birthday, couldn’t have a house warming when we bought our home, and now wedding stuff.
How odd would it be to still do bridal showers/ wedding showers?????
