Wedding Celebration Ideas
Your wedding anniversary is a terrific time to celebrate your relationship, lovingly remember the past, and look forward to your future together. Give your anniversary the extraordinary attention it is entitled to by making a big deal of the day. These anniversary celebration recommendations will help to make your special occasion memorable and romantic.
You know the old convention of preserving the top tier of the wedding cake to eat on the first anniversary? It is a time honored ritual, yet who really would like to eat a piece of cake that has been withering in the back of the refrigerator for the past twelve months. A great custom 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. 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 fun times still to come.
Jewelry is always a marvelous gift for a special occasion. An extraordinary 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 most loved photographs taken in the year since your last anniversary. This would be a marvelous tradition to initiate 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; contemplate all the things that could mean: tickets to a play, the travel plan for a fabulous adventure, or a museum membership card. The possibilities are infinite, as long as you keep the interests of your spouse in mind as your guide.
Remember that experiences are a wonderful way to celebrate an anniversary. You could go camping, plant a vegetable 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.
