For my dream vow renewal, I’m seeing shades of yellow and grey!

Have you entered this morning’s adorable zipper pouch giveaway?

So, I’m an old married lady now, but that doesn’t stop me from drooling WAY too often over weddings. I’m determined to convince the hubs that a vow renewal is a fabulous idea. I’m of the firm belief that a girl should get to wear a wedding gown more than once! I don’t think that a second wedding is too much to ask for. Do you? HA! The first time around I had a traditional affair that was held in a beautiful ballroom.

The next time around it might be fun to go for a little more of a laid back, yet still fabulously chic vibe. I’m sure you’ve heard me wax poetic over my love for yellow and grey before…Many of you also professed your own amore for this color combo in your comments on this morning’s post, so I’m hoping that you’ll dig it for a possible wedding color scheme!

I have a feeling that if I DO manage to convince the hubs that he is dying to see me walk down the aisle again, I’m going to have to keep my budget in check. So, here are a few beer budget wedding ideas! What do you think lovelies? Is a vow renewal in your future?

    Oooh I LOVE your dress, but I’m totally loving the Essa dress you posted as well. Something about asymmetrical dresses gets me every time! Don’t you wish we all got, like, 10 weddings (to the same guy of course) so we could get all of the details and themes in we want??

  2. Traci B says

    Sooo funny! I always tell my hubby that we need to have another wedding because I have so many cute ideas that I didn’t have the first time around!! You looked beautiful on your wedding day!

  3. Lisa says

    I have to agree…your wedding goes by so fast and you do all this planning and it’s over before you know it. I always say I wish I could relive that day or get married again (to my husband) just to enjoy that day again. He thinks renewing is dumb, so I’m going to have to live vicariously through my little sister when she gets married. Hopefully in the next few years!

  4. Jude says

    Oh my goodness, these are all so sweet and gorgeous (and lovely wedding photo)! Thanks so much for dropping by, I’m thrilled it led me to your beautiful blog 🙂

    Look at gorgeous you! I did a very budget friendly wedding dress – I wore a Vera Wang – wait for it – bridesmaid dress in ivory. I went to the same snooty store that sold the $$$ Vera’s and picked out my $300 (including alterations) dress and was waited on like a queen. Plus I can say I wore Vera – LOL!!! Needless to say our wedding wasn’t very formal so it just made sense.

  6. Polly says

    I would love to wear my wedding dress agiain – i always dreamed if I had a little girl that she might want to use it (or parts of it) looks like Im resigned to keeping it in the cupboard though with a house full of boys. Just love that yellow dress – actually i love it all!!

  7. Rhianne says

    Everytime I see you in your wedding dress I think you look absollutely stunning Kristen! You know I want yellow in my wedding and I’m definitely partial to grey with it and I think navy as well… shame I’m not planning on getting married anytime soon, haha

  8. hamptonhostess says

    what a great idea–I think you should definitely do it. (I always thought a destination marriage renewal on a Greek island would be fab!) The wedding dress is so chic and the grey and yellow combo genius! fun post!

  9. Scientific Housewife says

    Great items you picked out, a second wedding would be gorgeous! If we did a vow renewal, I’d want it to be a destination one 🙂

  10. Lynn@thevintagenest says

    My son will soon be getting married and I am strongly hinting at a destination very laid back but chic beach wedding. I am thinking only of myself here…. ha!…no mother-of -the-bride’s dress but something real beachy, flowing and easy to wear. What do you think? 🙂 Love the yellow and gray!

  11. Andi says

    You look SO gorgeous in your wedding pic! Love your ideas for your vow renewals though too. After all of the wedding planning that I’m doing right now I can’t imagine that I’d ever want to plan another wedding hahaha.

  12. Ellen says

    The yellow and gray theme is very pretty, and it sounds like you’ve got something fun in mind! We’ve never done a vow renewal, but we do go back to Fairchild Gardens, where we got married, on our anniversary and it’s very meaningful.

  13. Kristen says

    I love it! Great finds. I am in the wedding planning process now , and I have a feeling I will be planning vow renewals in a few years too..there are just so many cute and fun ideas and we can’t incorporate them all into the wedding!

  14. Jenn says

    Oh my gosh this post made me smile Kristin. You and my friend Ariyl must be wedding twins in what you like! Want to see this dream color combo in actuality? I’ll email you a link to her pictures if my mom brain can remember 🙂 Gray BM dresses, yellow ‘pom’ flowers in our hair, Charm Design pouches for BM’s, yellow flags strung up everywhere at the reception, yellow bouquets… seriously you guys are wedding twins!

  15. ms Givens says

    Love the tie!
    I sadly have been married to 3 real losers. No joke.
    1. an abusive alcoholic
    2. Had 3 girlfriends while married to me
    3. Financial infidel/pathological liar
    I had only one wedding but I loved it. Especially since my dress was a size 2.
    My colors were ivory and navy with silver accents.
