Default 30th anniversary and renewing vows

Beowulf and I are celebrating our 30th anniversary this year and we plan on renewing our vows and exchanging new wedding bands. Its actually in September but since I am a teacher and that time of year is crazy busy for me we are thinking of celebrating it during the summer. We've been trying to decide exactly what we want to do. I had an idea that we could go to the top of a mountain and exchange rings at sunrise. Sunrise symbolizing a new beginning. We were also thinking of doing it on or around July 4th since that is when Beowulf proposed. What does everyone think? Good idea? Any complications or issues we should consider before we finalize the plans?

I always have liked sunrise and sunsets on the ocean. A mountain sounds fantastic.

Congratulations. Wonderful idea.

The mountain idea sounds good, the sunset/sunrise on the beach has been done to death.

I don't know if you guys ski, but Loveland resort in Colorado hosts a Valentine's Day celebration every year of weddings and renewal of vows at the top of the mountain. Crazy fun with a bunch of people dressed in wedding garb!

Great that you both feel that way after 30 years.

Your idea sounds fantastic, just make sure it's not TOO complicated such that the logistics and potential for screw-ups are too high.

Keep the atmosphere relaxed or he'll just be glad when it's over. Low stress events are usually preferred.

We both want to do something different and romantic. Just the two of us. Our original marriage was quite stressful and not something we were happy with. Both sets of parents squabbling over the details. It got so large that we didn't know half the people that were supposed to be there. Eventually we just decided to make it a small ceremony and we did our own thing. But, everyone was equal. Equally pissed off that is.

If you can swing it, vow renewal on the beach at sunset. Nothing better.

Congratulations!
