Many couples that we meet have been married for 10, 20, and 30+ years and have talked about doing a vow renewal ceremony. But the idea of planning one can feel daunting. Especially if you remember planning your wedding. You’ve got normal life going on all around you and it’s hard work to plan something big and stay connected amidst, jobs, kids, friends, and everything else that life brings over the course of your marriage.
We’ve made vow renewal planning simple and effortless so that you get to celebrate! Our fully planned vow renewals include the venue, an officiant, cake, champagne, flowers, hair & makeup, 1-2 hours of photography, and a few special touches you’ll love. We also include a short list of our personally recommended partners to get your outfits from, as well as some ideas for a romantic getaway afterward.
You get your choice of venues. We take care of the officiant, cake, champagne, flowers, hair & makeup, 1-2 hours of photography, and a few special touches you’ll love. We also include a short list of our personally recommended partners to get your outfits from, as well as some ideas to plan a romantic getaway afterwards.
We start with a simple conversation so that we know what matters to you. After that, our team will put together all of the details. We’ll review your plan together and you’ll be ready to go. On your vow renewal day, we’ll be there to help you celebrate and walk you through every step. We’ll send you off with a bang and you’ll be on your way to continue to relive your memories!
• How many people can I invite?
• When can I schedule a vow renewal?
We book vow renewals Monday-Thursday.
We have a $1000 weekend surcharge and venue choices will be more limited. We’re able to offer some of Cincinnati’s best venue’s due to the unique nature of a vow renewal ceremony.
• What if I want more than 25 people?
Let us know and we can discuss it. Small vow renewals allow us to offer Cincinnati's best venue's at a fraction of the price. Many couples that want a large vow renewal will host a full reception afterwards.
• How far out can I book my vow renewal?
We book ReKindled Vow Renewals up to 6 months in advance. They can be planned in as little as 1-2 weeks.
• Can I customize my collection or choose my vendors?
Due to the unique nature of a vow renewal, we’re able to offer some of Cincinnati’s most sought after wedding vendors and venues for a fraction of the cost at a time they’d normally be booked a year in advance. We guarantee you’ll love every partner who makes something for you but we can’t guarantee that a specific vendor will be the one. Everyone one of our partners is someone we’d trust with our own wedding.
• I have my own church/officiant/etc., can I still hire The Smyth Collective for my vow renewal?
You are welcome to use your own vendor, but the benefit of a fully planned vow renewal with The Smyth Collective is that the whole process is all-inclusive which takes the workload off of you. Alternative venues must be agreed upon prior to booking.
• I want to plan a reception after my ceremony, can you help?
While we don’t plan full blown receptions, we’d be glad to make some recommendations for an intimate dinner and romantic date for the two of you, or provide some ideas for a larger reception.
• How can I book my vow renewal?
To make it official, we need a signed contract and a $1000 retainer. The remaining balance will be due in 2 payments, 60 days & 14 days prior to your event.
• Ok, we just booked The Smyth Collective! Now what?
Immediately after booking you will receive our curated list of design choices as well as a list of recommended getaway ideas and some fun surprises. Shortly after, you will receive a more in-depth questionnaire so we understand exactly what you’re dreaming of for your vow renewal and to get to know you as a couple. Six weeks before your vow renewal date, you will receive a custom design brief (if applicable) and sample timeline. The timeline will be confirmed 10 days before your vow renewal day.
