Four Reasons to Renew Your Vows in Galveston

Hotel Galvez & Spa has become one of the most popular locations for these rites, and hosts a mass vow renewal ceremony, performed by a Justice of the Peace, for dozens of couples during their Wedding Vow Renewal Weekend. Here are four great reasons to join them:  

1. The Wedding Vow Renewal Weekend Package: You’ll be spoiled with chocolate covered strawberries and complimentary champagne upon arrival, along with keepsake Hotel Galvez champagne glasses and an invitation to the hotel’s reception following the ceremony.

2. Beachfront Fabulous: After the ceremony, stroll on the beach and bring along a romantic picnic for two.

3. Food, Glorious Food: Indulge yourself at the fabulous feast that is Hotel Galvez’ famous Sunday brunch.

4. Have a blast “Discovering Galveston” and the many gems of this beautiful and historic city.

This year’s ceremony will take place on Saturday, June 8 and begins at 10 a.m. The hotel requires advance reservations for all participants. Couples should reserve their spot no later than the Wednesday prior by calling 409.765.7721.

For those who prefer a stay in the downtown area, check into The Tremont House in the Strand. Or, we recommend the Harbor House Hotel & Marina for accommodations near Pier 21.
