Ive been asked by several people to officiate a renewal of vows ceremony this summer. At first it sounded like such a great idea but as the summer approaches I am quickly finding that I have no idea what I'm doing. This call goes out to those of you who have renewed your vows and those ministers who have officiated over a renewal of vows ceremony.
What are the expectations?
Should I meet with the couple in some kid of post martial counseling? I am sure that I will but what are the key topics to address?
Is there some standard renewal of vows ceremony I can't find that can be adapted to fit the unique situation of the couples?
What has been your experience?
What should I avoid?
