Engagement Celebration Ideas
Your wedding anniversary is a fantastic time to celebrate your marital relationship, fondly recall the past, and await your future together. Give your anniversary the extraordinary attention it warrants by making a big deal of the day. These anniversary celebration tips will help to make your special occasion memorable and romantic.
You know 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 romantic 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 absolute favorite photographs taken in the year since your last anniversary. This would be a marvelous tradition to start 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 for a fabulous excursion, or a museum membership card.
Remember that experiences are a wonderful way to rejoice in an anniversary. You could go camping, plant a flower 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 here sure to be very special.
