Vow-Renewal Dresses to Rekindle the Romance
1. Lace Cap Sleeve Long Matte Mesh Dress
This is definitely a top-of-the-list vow renewal dress, no doubt about it. The delicate lace cap sleeves, the graceful silhouette – it’s all perfect. The cinching at the waist is flattering, and if you like a dress with some length, we think a draped skirt like the one on this dress is beautiful.
2. Pleated Plunge Wrap Wedding Dress in Satin
You know, white satin isn’t for everyone, but we’re gonna go out on a limb here and say this dress is the exception. It’s so sexy, and unbelievably elegant. If you aren’t a fluffy wedding dress kind of girl but still want to hear whispers about how gorgeous you look as you walk down the aisle, this is your dress.
3. Badgley Mischka Alanna Jumpsuit
We love the effortless sophistication of this jumpsuit!
It’s the perfect thing to wear if you’re renewing your vows at a comfortable daytime ceremony. A halter neckline to show off those sexy shoulders is fabulous enough, but when it’s paired with that cutout at the bust, it’s a showstopper. You’ll definitely be raking in the compliments on this one!
4. Lace V-Neck Sash Gown
This lacy dress is oh-so-feminine, and the satin sash around the waist makes it even sweeter.
We think it would be just perfect for a vintage garden wedding, or a modern rooftop wedding in the summertime. The fringed lace illusion neckline and v-back makes the whole dress look like something from a fairy tale. Love it.
5. Crepe Plunge V-Neck Sleeveless Side Slit Gown
Me-yow! If you want to turn heads, this dress will do it for sure. We love the classic glam silhouette, and the fact that you can choose between black, red, or off-white. Who says a wedding vow renewal dress can’t be black? Not me. A crepe gown with a plunging neckline and side slit to show a little leg will never go out of style.
6. Sharice Lace Sheath Dress
A pretty, sleeveless lace sheath dress is a classic summer choice for all kinds of events. We especially love the lace pattern with eyelash fringe on the jewel neckline, which gives off sweet-yet-contemporary vibes.
The cut and style of this dress makes it perfect for wearing to renew your vows, especially if you’re having an outside warm-weather ceremony.
7. Bohemian Inspired Lace Maxi Dress
This dress would look perfect with a wildflower bouquet and a barefoot vow renewal ceremony, but honestly, it looks so comfortable you could wear it all summer.
Made from cotton crepe fabric, you know it’s got to be extremely breathable, and the lacy accents add an extra touch of femininity. We love the flowy drape of the neckline and sleeves, it seriously makes one want find a beautiful meadow and start twirling.
8. Caron V-Neck Crepe Dress
This dress is so flattering, any woman will feel and look beautiful in it!
The spaghetti straps and flowy tulip skirt on this dress have that ballerina-chic form that’s just so timeless. The plunging neckline and cinched waist makes it a super sexy choice to wear while renewing your vows, but this is another one of those dresses that would be suitable for any dressy occasion.
It’s available in ivory, as well as emerald, black, and midnight to give you plenty of color options in case you just want to switch up your colors walking down the aisle a second time.
9. Lace Cap Sleeve A-Line Midi Dress
The perfect vow renewal dress for the lady who prefers to remain low key, but who is anything but boring!
This crepe dress is so classy, images of Grace Kelly came immediately to mind when we saw it. Midi-length dresses are so flattering, and that pretty flare gives it just a little bit of flirty playfulness. Love the boat neckline and the cap lace sleeves too.
Enjoy the Ride
People choose to renew their vows for all kinds of reasons.
We know people who’ve wanted to recommit to each other after getting through a rough patch, and coming out on the other side stronger and more in love than ever.
We know some who got married in a rush the first time around, or were too stressed to enjoy it, and always wanted a “do-over” away from the pressure of a large wedding. Then there are some who just want to reiterate their love for each other.
Whatever your reasons, it’s an incredibly affirming thing to stand up before friends and family and declare that in good times and bad, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, you’d do it all over again. Together.
