I'm also renewing my vows, but I'm having a very intimate ceremony-just me and the hubby. Have you considered Jamaica? The Couples Resorts offer (IMO) a good bang for your buck. They have tons of activities that are included in the all inclusive rate and their vow renewal ceremony package is the most robust I've seen. The only thing is that the Couples Resorts caters to well...couples. So if your 100 person guest list is 50 couples then you're good. Otherwise, you're charged for guest passes for the ceremony & reception.
Honestly,I was going to go there and the only thing that changed my mind is that I think their photo packages are the pits! And photography to me is..shh don't tell anyone ..more important than my dress.(well a larger part of my budget is going towards photography than to my dress) So I'm bringing my own photographer and they charge an extra
$500 to do so. So I switched to a resort in St. Lucia, that's a more expensive resort but less expensive to bring my own photographer. Since its just me and the old man and we're not going until 2015 we can spend a little more on the vow renewal and just go to the Couples Resorts for a vacation.
I say definitely check them out, especially if you're an active couple.
