Wedding-Vow Renewal Ceremony, sponsored by Reese – Attempt to break the world record.

At the 2013 Rally in Syracuse, New York, we attempted to break the record for the world’s largest wedding vow renewal ceremony. We didn’t quite break the 1,087 couple record, so we are going to attempt this again.

To place the Phoenix event solidly in the record books, the Rally is setting the stage to again host the world’s largest wedding vow renewal ceremony on Thursday at 6:30 pm in the grandstands prior to evening entertainment. Couples can tie the knot all over again in the company of their extended Rally family. Don’t forget to pack a wedding veil, bouquet and boutonniere because the best-dressed bride and groom will win a prize worthy of the big day. If participants surpass the current record of 1,087 couples, the Rally will go down in matrimonial history.  (Copy of marriage certificate must be provided to be counted.)
