How to celebrate six months of marriage at a wedding party?

In March, Mrs. HeroZero and I exchanged vows and rings at City Hall with a very small group of friends and immediate family. On Labor Day, we're having a bigger wedding party with the friends and family who couldn't come to the original, tiny event. What are some ideas for making this ceremony meaningful in a way that's different from how a wedding goes?

That is to say, though we'll have a tiered cake and dancing and a ceremony of some sort, we don't want to exchange rings again or necessarily reiterate everything that happens at a usual wedding. We want it to be more about how our community of friends and family supports our vows to each other than about the vows themselves (which we already took).
One idea we're already enacting: on our RSVP form, we asked people to give us one line of advice for our marriage. We are having a graphic designer friend put combine these into a sort of "secular ketubah" wedding contract for everyone to sign.
Any other fun, ceremonial ideas?
