I Do Renew, Do You?

May 1st, 2013

Every year we can count on Mariah and Nick to remind us to keep the romance alive when they renew their vows.  While celebrity recommitments keep these ceremonies in the news, here at Jolly Beach Resort we know they’re more than just a trend.  Renewal of Vows are a very popular celebration here year after year and for reasons as individual as the couples themselves.  Many are commemorating a milestone anniversary having been together through thick and thin, then there are the newlyweds who said their “I dos” in a traditional wedding at home and want an intimate ceremony on the beach.  Some say a recommitment is a wedding they can relax and enjoy, and not be caught up in the planning, to really appreciate what marriage and their love means in their lives. And still others to share a celebration of their love with children and grandchildren. Whatever the reason and whether it’s close to home or barefoot on a beach like ours, committed relationships are something to celebrate.  Congratulations Mariah and Nick.

Anytime is the perfect time to celebrate a union and declare "œI do."€ At Jolly Beach Resort & Spa we make it free and easy to plan a vow renewal for guests booking a 7-night, all-inclusive stay in a Superior Room category or higher.
