Wedding Anniversary Celebration Ideas
Your wedding anniversary is a great time to celebrate your marital life, fondly remember the past, and eagerly anticipate your future together. Give your anniversary the very special attention it warrants by making a big deal of the day. These anniversary celebration tips will help to make your special occasion memorable and romantic.
You know the old practice of saving the top tier of the wedding cake to eat on the first anniversary? It is a time honored ritual, yet who really desires to eat a piece of cake that has been wasting away in the back of the deep freeze for the past twelve months. A great rite to begin on your first wedding anniversary is to buy a small cake in the exact same flavor as your wedding cake. Go ahead and save the top tier to open on your anniversary, but then eat the fresh cake with your sweetie. Shopping for a mini cake to share is a great thing to do each year on your wedding anniversary. Get a nice bottle of Champagne to go with it, and salute to the good times you have shared, and the good times still to come.
Jewelry is always a marvelous gift for a special occasion. A lovely way for a husband to show his wife how much she means to him on their anniversary is to treat her to a special piece of jewelry. Or, he can take his wife out to a fancy restaurant for a sumptuous anniversary dinner, and then just "happen" to stroll by that Raleigh jewelry store after the meal.
Sometimes the most meaningful anniversary gifts are labors of love. A lovely idea is to assemble a collection of your favorite photographs taken in the year since your last anniversary. Download them to one of the online photo sites and have a small book made with all of the pictures printed in it. These little books are quite affordable, and very charming. This would be a marvelous tradition to begin on your first wedding anniversary, and to do for each anniversary that follows. What a great collection you will have of all the vacations, family moments, and other events in your married life!
When a person is stumped for a very good anniversary gift, a good place to get inspiration is the traditional lists of anniversary gifts for each year. Use the list as a starting off point, and then put a personal spin on it. The traditional first anniversary gift is paper; think about all the things that could mean: tickets to a play, the travel plan for a fabulous trip, or a museum membership card. The possibilities are unlimited, as long as you keep the interests of your spouse in mind as your guide.
Remember that experiences are a wonderful way to honor an anniversary. You could go camping, plant a back garden together, go skydiving, or dispatch the emerald cut engagement rings kids to the grandparents and enjoy a quiet weekend alone. As long as you are together, your anniversary is sure to be very special.
