Renewing your vows in the Maldives
They say weddings are once-in-a-lifetime experiences, but that’s not technically true.
When all that’s left of the big day is wedding cake crumbs and popped Champagne corks, you can look forward to renewing your vows. And you can do it as soon after the original celebration as you like. Fly out to the Maldives the day after and enjoy a second ceremony with the breaks on. These duplicate wedding days are the right moment to write your own vows. The only eyes on you can be his or hers as you read your self-penned promises on a wooden jetty on the edge of a lagoon.
Renewing your vows in the Maldives is also something you can do later in your lives together. Out here, you can reaffirm that you still do after decades of marriage. And it goes without saying that the Maldives puts a flawless finish on honeymoons. The water villas here were made for lie-ins and lazy Champagne breakfasts in bed. The over-the-water spas are tuned to couples’ therapies. And the deserted islands invite you to spread a blanket on the sand, unpack a wicker hamper, and picnic.
