As you may know Lea & I are headed to Las Vegas this weekend with friends from Childress. We’re trying to talk the girls into renewing our wedding vows with Elvis at the White Wedding Chapel. :)

I think it’d be fun and make a GREAT story … Lea say, “Elvis? Renewing our vows? That’s lame!”

So what do you think? Do we do the Elvis thing or not? What’s your opinion?

    No! Go with Lea’s instinct on this one!

  2. Mark Roberts says:

    I’m gonna same lame. No specific reason…just something I would never do. I would possibly entertain renewing vows someday but getting married by Elvis…count me out.

  3. Gallagher says:

    I vote Elvis!

  4. nick gill says:

    LOL I would do it in a heartbeat! Just to have the pictures! That’d be a HOOT!

    But I’d also let Monty Python renew my vows if I could get them interested!

    Of course it is lame. VEGAS is lame. But it is also hysterically funny! So do it!

  5. haley says:

    Randy and I say yeahhhhh. That would be hilarious. Just make sure and take plenty of pictures if you do it.

  6. Belinda says:

    Love the renewing part, I always wanted to do that too, but the Elvis thing has to go, make it romantic.If you want them to do it make it about the ladies……

  7. Larissa says:

    I think you should ABSOLUTELY do it, whether you go the Elvis route or not!!! It would be a great story, memory, and of course a great blog!!! Unless of course it cost a lot of money, then I would say no, and go shopping instead.

  8. Evan Williams says:

    coming from an eighteen yr. old with not much life experience…. i say do it

  9. Timbra says:

    i say YES. . . my husband is the one who thinks vow renewal is silly, but he’d probably be up for it if a trip to vegas was involved. i was hoping that we’d get to see you guys while you’re in vegas, BUT i’m in CA this weekend. . . . good timing! i’m sure mike would be MORE than willing to make the 7 hour drive if vegas was involved. . . well, perhaps i won’t tell him that’s an option, he’ll see you in a month at tulsa instead. . . have a great time, hope you can talk the girls into the elvis, vow thing! it does make a great story, get LOTS of pix and make sure lea wears a short white dress with white cowboy boots for the “ceremony!” you should have a bolo tie!

  10. Katherine says:

    Ha ha, well it is lame-but would be hilarious! Except, I would go with “Shaft” instead of Elvis 😉

    It would be quite a memory, and we would definitely have to see pictures…and yes, unless like Larissa mentioned it cost a lot of money-why not?!

    Oh, and ha-this is funny…since you are going to Vegas for the race-my captcha to post this comments is “preracc”!

  11. Tommy says:

    Do It!

  12. Elizabeth H. says:

    Hey you could wait til camp and have our Elvis marry you!! Save some bucks. : )

  13. Deb ;) says:

    Hmmmmm….I love the renewal idea, but Elvis?? It WOULD make a great blog, and I am sure you all would have some great laughs during the “ceremony!” I say, Go For It!!

  14. Dcmba says:

    EVERYTHING Elvis-related is lame, unless it is one of his original recordings.

  15. Haley says:

    Put me down for a yes vote! Have a blast!

  16. David Kirk says:

    I vote for Elvis!

  17. cwinwc says:

    I like it!
    You might want to avoid wearing “blue suede shoes.” :)

    “Ladies and gentlemen – Trey and Lea have left the building.”

  18. Liss and MOMMY says:

    You should do it! Lea-ask for a ring to go with the ceremony.

  19. nick gill says:

    I bet if you let Lea buy some shoes, she’ll say yes!

  20. That Girl says:


  21. The Ards says:

    Seriously LAME!!

    However, since I was a bridesmaid at your first wedding, I’d HAVE to be there for the 2nd one, so let me know and I’ll join ya in Vegas! It’s a place that I’ve always wanted to go! :)

  22. blogprophet says:

    of course, with the whole what happens…stays…there thing, would we know afterward if you do it?

    “hunka hunka bloggin love”

    I couldn’t think of a better reason to justify a trip to Vegas! Go for it and then take Lea to Disneyland for a fun honeymoon!

  24. Jason Browning says:

    DO IT BABY!!!

  25. Cecelia says:

    I’d listen to Lea.

  26. Helen Keller says:

    yes but dress in costume, wigs etc. much more fun!!! and let lea buy shoes she will be happier about it!

  27. Anonymous says:

    I didn’t know you were going to Vegas. WHY? Why didn’t you tell your most important people you were going. Where are the boys going? I probably would have done the Elvis thing a few years back but I did mine at church at 25 years of marriage. That was almost 11 years ago. Report in. gmj

  28. nb says:

    Go for it!

  29. Doug Young says:

    I voted at 11 am but it never showed up! Do it! Trey! Lea! Trey! Lea! Do it!

  30. Stoogelover says:

    Do you want to have some fun or be happy?

  31. Cressie says:

    I think that it sounds fun! I wish I could be there to see it. Don’t you need the original flower girl!?

  32. Chad Kuehn says:

    Far from lame…I pick Elvis.

  33. The Vannoy Family says:

    Poor Lea – buy the woman lots of new shoes – MANY PAIRS while in Vegas – she deserves it! (Ya could’ve had Smokey do a renewing in Fair Park after a big BBQ… gah!)

    Do it! It's Elvis and Vegas all in one. What more could you ask for. My husband and I are doing it for our 10th later this year,
