Wedding Celebration Ideas
Your wedding anniversary is a splendid time to celebrate your alliance, fondly recall the past, and await your future together. Give your anniversary the exclusive attention it warrants by making a big deal of the day. These anniversary celebration ideas will help to make your special occasion memorable and romantic.
You recognize the old custom of saving the top tier of the wedding cake to eat on the first anniversary? A great custom to begin on your first wedding anniversary is to order a small cake in the same flavor as your wedding cake. Ordering a mini cake to share is a great thing to do each year on your wedding anniversary.
Jewelry is always a marvelous gift for a special occasion. A precious 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 here after the meal.
Sometimes the most meaningful anniversary gifts are labors of love. A lovely idea is to assemble a collection of your number one photographs taken in the year since your last anniversary. This would be a marvelous tradition to undertake on your first wedding anniversary, and to do for each anniversary that follows.
When a person is stumped for a great 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; imagine all the things that could mean: tickets to a play, the travel plan for a fabulous getaway, or a museum membership card. The possibilities are countless, 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 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.
