Wedding Aniversary Planning

When planning a Wedding Anniversary celebration most people take into account how many years they have been married in order to make a decision. On the first anniversary a couple may want to be alone, eat the top layer of their cake that is in the freezer and reminisce about their first year as a married couple. The tenth anniversary might call for the two of you to take a trip alone together. You might want a quick weekend out of town at a Bed and Breakfast close to home or visit the romantic spot where you went on your first date. A getaway from the kids at this point spent focusing on one another may be what you need in order to put a spark back into your marriage. The bigger wedding anniversaries that include loved ones and a more elaborate celebration of your union usually occur around the 25th or 50th anniversary. During these events you will be able to see the many people in your life that have added value to your marriage throughout the years with their love and support. The milestone anniversary years need the most attention, but every anniversary you celebrate together should be special. Read more here what else you can do for your wedding anniversary day.

If you are throwing a larger anniversary party it is important to decide how big you want the guest list to be. Some people rent halls for these festivities while others opt for a smaller more intimate gathering at a restaurant. An anniversary party is a lot of fun as a couple because it should not be as stressful as a wedding. Invite people that are important to you and have had a positive affect on your marriage. A combination of family, friends and a few coworkers is common in these events. Whether you decide to have a small or large gathering it is important to talk about budget and set a cap on the number of people on the guest list. Details are important as well and you may want to have a theme for your party. Some couples may decorate the venue with pictures of them throughout the years as centerpieces on tables. If you are feeling nostalgic, include your wedding color scheme in the décor as well for a personal touch. Have a song from every year that you were married on the music Playlist to celebrate each one individually. Be creative and have fun with it, reflect on your journey together at this time and look forward to what is to come.

Although the love that you have together is a gift that you share everyday, it is a tradition on your anniversary to give your spouse a token of your affection. Traditional and modern lists are available if you would like to give a type of gift that corresponds with the number of years that you have been together. Younger couples may opt for the modern versions that contain electronics and devices that make life more convenient for them. Being that you got plenty of practical gifts when you first got married, anniversaries should be a time to be creative and thoughtful with your ideas. For example, on the traditional list of gifts the first year is paper. Some options that you may want to consider are concert tickets to a band you enjoy listening to together or simply writing them a love letter and have them receive it in the actual mail. Many of the first years of marriage have a specific corresponding gift that goes along with it then you get into the milestone gifts later on such as silver for the 25th, gold for the 50th and diamond for the 60th. Be sure to mark the date on your calendar so you will never forget to celebrate this special day together no matter what you do, or which gift you choose. © 2016 | Privacy Policy
