Stay-at-home Celebration.

Wedding anniversary doesn’t have to be extravagant or it should be spent in a cozy restaurant. Taking a day off from work and spending your day at home will be more than enough to celebrate your wedding anniversary. To avoid distractions, turn off your phone and spend some quality time with your partner.

Make a restaurant reservation.

Include food trip in your wedding anniversary. You may choose your favorite restaurant where you spent a lot of times before or during your courtship stage. It is good to reminisce the past and remind each other how you ended up together… marrying each other. It is nice to be romantic and cheesy at some point, it brings the passion more feisty and fiery.

Watch your wedding video together.

You can use these activities on your wedding anniversary and make it more special. It doesn’t have to be expensive or extravagant. Being there for each other and spending time will always make your wedding anniversary complete. But if you wish to throw a wedding anniversary party, here are some more ideas.

Organizing a Wedding Anniversary Party

In organizing an anniversary party, the couple should first settle on the location of the party before they could proceed with other parts of the plan. So here we are giving you tips on how to select the ideal venue for your anniversary celebration:

Wedding Anniversary Party Venue

Consider the distance of the place—as much as possible, pick a location which is accessible not only to you, but to most of your loved ones as well; you don’t want them to miss one of the most important occasions of your life. Of course, it will be a hard one especially if your loved ones are scattered living in different places. To those living in distant places, make sure that you’ll give them the instructions for them on how to get there, maybe include a map on their invitation.

Go on somewhere romantic— you don’t want to celebrate on a place where you can hear the honking of the cars or the screams of playing children. Select a place where you are at peace and you can feel the romance down to the bones. You can choose a place that holds memories of your loving. A nature-inspired place might be perfect; or any place that is romantically embellished.

Wedding Anniversary Theme


Of course it’s an important consideration. If you want a floral party, then it is advised for you to get a flower garden. Want an island-themed party? The beach it is.

If you can’t afford someplace that is being described on the previous tips, well there is nothing creativity can’t fix. If you only can purchase a rent for a simple venue, you can always seek help from your artistic friends to transform it into a place of romance and affection. Customizing the place is really the best idea if you’ve got a small budget.

Check the symbol of your anniversary

Well, every year anniversary has a symbol. This tip is to check the extravagance of your party. For the most fabulous venues that you could imagine, save them for the silver, gold and diamond anniversary. Moderately lavish places may do for year anniversaries in the multiples of 10. Settling on something luxurious on a very random time, say your 23rd anniversary is very impractical, unless it is a highly significant number for you. For those type of anniversaries, you could just hold a simple party at home, or you just go out on a lavish date.

We hope this helped you in selecting the perfect location for your anniversary! We wish you all the best in your relationship!
