Great Ideas for Great Wedding Anniversaries

One of the most special days of the year for married couples is their wedding anniversary. How you decide to celebrate can range from large scale celebrations to a small scale evening at home. Whether your budget is large or small, you can get creative to create a memorable event for you and your spouse. Here are some ideas for wedding anniversaries to get the wheels turning.

Wedding Anniversaries: From Paper to Diamond - Wedding Anniversaries Explained

Small Budget Ideas

With many couples on tight budgets due to job loss and the economy, but that doesn't mean a special anniversary celebration is out of the question. If you are pinching pennies – these are a few ideas for wedding anniversaries: spend the evening at home – cook a favorite meal, then watch your wedding video – but get dressed up and set the table with your good china – truly make it feel special. Another idea is to go out to a restaurant and just order coffee and dessert – you can enjoy a mini-date that won't break the bank, and you get a special treat, too.

Get Away From It All

Some couples who have the budget to afford it can schedule yearly getaways for their anniversary each year. One of the great ideas for wedding anniversaries that involve getting away is that you can change it up year after year. Unlike most gifts that are a surprise, this is a gift that may be best if planned together, unless you think you know what your spouse will really like. Another idea to consider is taking smaller trips some years to save for larger trips on milestone anniversaries. Sometimes the best getaway can be playing tourist in your own area - “staycations” are also becoming quite popular due to high gas prices as well.

Two souls with but a single thought,

Two hearts that beat as one.

— Friedrich Halm

Make it Reflect the Two of You

Regardless of how many ideas for wedding anniversaries you see out there, the most important thing is to make it special to the two of you. What might be a wonderful idea for one couple might not be what works for you and your spouse. While some couples love to travel or vacation each year for their anniversary, others might enjoy staying in and just spending a couple of days together around the house. You know what you and your spouse prefer, and what means the most, and that's the best gift you can give – is the chance to enjoy each other on your special day.
