Anniversary Celebration Ideas
Your wedding anniversary is an extraordinary time to celebrate your marital relationship, lovingly remember the past, and anticipate your future together. Give your anniversary the exclusive attention it is entitled to by making a big deal of the day. These anniversary celebration ideas will help to ensure your special occasion memorable and romantic.
You know the old convention of stashing the top tier of the wedding cake to eat on the first anniversary? It is a time honored habit, yet who really would like to eat a piece of cake that has been wasting away in the back of the freezer for the past twelve months. A great rite to begin on your first wedding anniversary is to get 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. Getting 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 great times still to come.
Jewelry is always a marvelous gift for a special occasion. A superb 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. 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. The traditional first anniversary gift is paper; think of all the things that could mean: tickets to a play, the itinerary highly rated on ebay for a fabulous trip, or a museum membership card.
Remember that experiences are a wonderful way to rejoice in an anniversary. You could go camping, plant a back 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.
