Vow Renewal Do's & Don'ts?


Not sure if this is the right place to post this or not.

My husband and I were married this past January in the courthouse of the town we live in. We are planning a vow renewal and reception for next year so that our families can be there since they weren't able to be there when we married. My mother told me that I had given up my right to wear a wedding dress to our vow renewal and reception next year since I got married in a courthouse and that she wouldn't attend it if it was too extravagant. So, I was wondering if any of you lovely ladies have done a vow renewal and what is appropriate and what is not? Thank you in advance! ♡ ♡
