Wedding Anniversary Celebration Ideas
Your wedding anniversary is a fantastic time to celebrate your partnership, lovingly remember the past, and eagerly anticipate your future together. Give your anniversary the very special attention it deserves by making a big deal of the day. These anniversary celebration suggestions will help to ensure your special occasion memorable and romantic.
You know the old custom of stashing the top tier of the wedding cake to eat on the first anniversary? It is a time honored custom, yet who really desires to eat a piece of cake that has been wasting away in the back of the fridge for the past twelve months. A great rite to begin on your first wedding anniversary is to buy a small cake in the same flavor as your wedding cake. Go on and save the top tier to open on your anniversary, but then eat the fresh cake with your sweetie. Choosing 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 honor to the good times you have shared, and the fun times still to come.
Jewelry is always a magnificent gift for a special occasion. It is romantic, sweet, and wonderful-- pretty much the perfect gift as far as most wives are concerned. 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. There are two ways to approach it, both of which are romantic in their own right. Certainly the husband can head straight to his favorite Raleigh jewelry store, or the store in whichever town he calls home. Or, he can take his wife out to an expensive restaurant for a sumptuous anniversary dinner, and then just "happen" to stroll by that Raleigh jewelry store after the meal. He can take her inside, and invite his wife to select a very special new piece of jewelry on the spot, his treat.
Sometimes the most meaningful anniversary gifts are labors of love. A lovely idea is to assemble a collection of your absolute favorite photographs taken in the year since your last anniversary. This would be a marvelous tradition to launch on your first wedding anniversary, and to do for each anniversary that follows.
When a person is stumped for a 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 website personal spin on it. The traditional first anniversary gift is paper; consider 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 small garden together, go skydiving, or dispatch the kids to the grandparents and enjoy a quiet weekend alone. As long as you are together, your anniversary is sure to be very special.
