Anniversary Celebration Inspiration

Just like a good marriage, a memorable wedding anniversary will involve communication. Here are some tips to include your spouse on the wedding anniversary celebration ideas so you can plan a memorable day:

  • Mark your wedding anniversary date prominently on your family calendar by circling the date and noting which anniversary you will be celebrating.
  • Discuss anniversary celebration ideas with your spouse and make plans together. Start planning how you will celebrate the day at least two weeks in advance.
  • Determine if you’d like to go all out and host a party, arrange a romantic dinner for just the two of you, or stay in and have a quiet evening together.
  • Keep an anniversary scrapbook or journal of your anniversary celebrations throughout the years. There may be a day when you might not remember how you celebrated some of your anniversaries! As your special day draws near, take out the scrapbook for inspiration.
  • Whether your celebration is large or small, include a special toast to one another in recognition of spending another year together.
  • For your first, fifth, or 10th wedding anniversary, create a time capsule. You can use a shoe box and seal it with tape. Mark it with a “Open On” date on the outside of the box. This will be a blast to open years down the road, during a milestone anniversary.

Anniversary Celebration Ideas

Still stumped? Here are some ideas for a wonderful wedding anniversary you’ll never forget.

  • Plan a weekend getaway. Find a relaxing Bed and Breakfast with in driving distance. If you are more into active get-aways, sneak away to a place where there is plenty of hiking, biking or whatever activity you enjoy as a couple.
  • Recreate your honeymoon! If you loved the trip you took after the wedding, go back to the same spot. If you never took a honeymoon, plan a trip to somewhere you have both always wanted to visit.
  • Shop for and cook anniversary dinner together. One person chooses the entree and the other can choose dessert.
  • Order a personalized wedding certificate keepsake. Check out gallery of love for ideas.
  • Make a list of 10 things you’d like to experience or do in your lifetime. Alternate choosing something from each person every anniversary.
  • If it is a milestone wedding anniversary (10th, 25th, 50th etc.) splurge on a that piece of jewelry he/she has always wanted. If possible, engrave it with a little love note.
  • Re-create your first date. Did you go to a movie and awkwardly share a dessert? Try it again, all these years later.
  • Take a day to be tourists in your own city. Are there must-see attractions, beautiful viewing spots or delicious local cafes that attract visitors to your city? Visit them yourselves!
  • Book a couple’s photo shoot.
  • Stay in and watch your wedding video together. Talk about how you’ve changed and the ways you’re still the same.
  • Take a day trip. There are probably small towns within a couple of hours of your city that would be fun to explore together.
  • Check the symbol of your anniversary year and plan something fun around it. For example, the symbols of the 4th anniversary are fruit and flowers, so you could have a picnic in a field with plenty of fresh fruits.
  • Bust our your rarely-used wedding gifts, like the fondue pot and the fine china, and use them.
  • Try something crazy you’ve always wanted to do together, like indoor skydiving, parasailing or chartering a boat.
  • Instead of a standard restaurant meal, try a progressive dinner. Pick four restaurants and bars you’ve been wanting to try and just order one or two small things at each place.
