How to Have a Perfect Marriage Anniversary

Time flies by very fast, and it seems that it flies by even faster while you are getting older and having fun. This is why most of our marriage anniversaries come, it seems, every other month! Jokes aside, marriage anniversaries are very important and they can be a great way to keep your marriage fresh and romantic. Organizing a marriage anniversary (or a marriage anniversary party), should not come as a burden or simply just a task, but if you’re not the person to throw something big, you can always surprise your spouse with a romantic dinner or something else that they would like. But, if you have kids, where do they fit in? Take a look at some of the most important things to consider while planning a marriage anniversary.

Recreate your wedding

The first idea would be to recreate your wedding party, but of course, a bit simplified. Namely, you do not have to invite all the guests – you will need plenty of organization and money for that, but you can always turn to the same venue where you organized the biggest day of your lives. If the venue is a restaurant, make sure to book a table where you were sitting, or have a similar (or same) meals. This will definitely bring back some memories that you want to cherish forever.

The role of your children

If you have children, this means that you simply have to include them in the organization of your marriage anniversary. They probably haven’t been born then, so this is going to be quite interesting for them. Making them an important part of the event, either with their presence or with the role that you will give them, is a great idea. They could be the gift bearers, they could state where they would like to go and thus have a dinner party there. Is there any better way to throw an anniversary for your marriage than spending it with your immediate family?

Think of a nice present

Of course, you have to think carefully about the present for your spouse. Even though presents do not matter as much as your love, this is the time to prove your love and loyalty by giving them something they will cherish – so not a simple present. If you cannot think of a present that they will like, you can think outside of the box and think of something interesting, original and symbolic. For example, you can opt for the gift of a watch that will symbolically mean that you want to spend a lot more time with them. If this is the case, make sure to pick the best and the most fashionable, so you can browse around for high-quality Japanese watches as you want something that is pretty and long-lasting. Apart from the watches, you can also choose to give them the gift of a second honeymoon, which is very romantic.

Relive your first date

Unless you really want to recreate your wedding night in a way, you can relive your first date which might be even more interesting as it is farther in the past, and thus you will remember some of the most precious moments of your life. If you want to bring your kids as well, feel free to, as that will add a dash of new to the mix. Choose the venue where you met, take the same walks, and try to remember what you were talking about. Not only is this super romantic, but it can also be quite fun. 

Indulge in a new activity

Or, you can stop taking a walk down memory lane, and opt for something new and fresh instead. Indulging in new activities is a great way to spice up your life and your marriage, and to celebrate the years together by doing something new for the first time. The best idea would be to do something together as a family – whether it’s a road trip, a trip to Disneyland, or something much more extreme, it’s up to you. If it’s only the two of you, however, this is the time to opt for bungee jumping, parachuting, or something much more dangerous that will bring you closer together. Of course, you can always choose the safe path and consider a trip to an exotic place as something new and interesting.

Ah, marriage anniversaries. You might sometimes think that it is not a date worth celebrating, but then that day comes and you actually realize that it does matter. This is why you should always know these things in advance, so that you have plenty of time to think it over.
