A vow renewal ceremony is your chance to break the bridal fashion rules and have some fun with your attire—after all, commemorating years of marriage is certainly a cause for serious celebration. While there are no hard and fast rules where vow renewal dresses are concerned, it's important to take the location, time of year and general vibe of your ceremony in mind. Translation: If you're making it official all over again with an unfussy, outdoor ceremony at the height of summer, it's probably a good idea to skip a heavy ball gown and opt for a lightweight gown, cocktail dress or jumpsuit. That said, you also don't have to stick to more casual vow renewal dresses if you're feeling a bold and dramatic look. So, whether you're going for a flouncy cocktail dress, sleek jumpsuit or super-romantic gown, your vow renewal attire should make you feel like the best version of yourself.
