We recently received an “invitation” from some relatives to “save the date” for their [U]wedding renewal ceremony[/U]. I’m not up on all the latest wedding fru-fru (never have been and not gonna start now), but is this a normal thing for couples to have? And are we supposed to send a gift?
I thought a renewal of vows were for people who were having a rocky marriage and wanted to recommit to each other. This couple isn’t having any rockiness, so what’s with this anyway–just a chance to throw a party for themselves and get presents?
We have a previous engagement, so we can’t attend, but meanwhile I’m finding this a strange thing to ask of friends and relatives.
