Anniversary Celebration Ideas
Your wedding anniversary is a great time to celebrate your marital relationship, lovingly recall the past, and anticipate your future together. Give your anniversary the extraordinary 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 preserving the top tier of the wedding cake to eat on the first anniversary? It is a time honored habit, yet who really wants to eat a piece of cake that has been wasting away in the rear of the deep freeze for the past twelve months. A great custom to begin on your first wedding anniversary is to buy a small cake in the similar 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. 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 toast to the good times you have shared, and the good times still to come.
Jewelry is always a marvelous gift for a special occasion. An appealing 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 cherished photographs taken in the year since your last anniversary. This would be a marvelous tradition to get going 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 here 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 schedule for a fabulous adventure, or a museum membership card. The possibilities are numerous, as long as you keep the interests of your spouse in mind as your guide.
Remember that experiences are a wonderful way to commemorate an anniversary. You could go camping, plant a flower garden together, go skydiving, or send off 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.
