8 Unique Ways to Celebrate Your Wedding Anniversary
Traditions, especially anniversary traditions, are so fun and hold such a special place in our hearts. I think that we’ve all heard of the old tradition of saving a slice of wedding cake and enjoying it with your partner on your 1st wedding anniversary. But, what is something special you can do for the years to come? Here are a few of my favorite wedding anniversary traditions that you can your love can do each year:
Take updated photos together!
This is one of my favorite ideas because photos truly last a lifetime. Each year, you can plan with your fav photographer to have a little session to have updated couple photos! This is a great way to capture memories of where you were in life during that year. They will be cherished photos to look back on forever and ever!
Renew your vows
This is more common to do, but it doesn’t have to be a big event like you might think. This could be something special that you and your partner share with each other each year. It’s a beautiful reminder of the promise you made to each other and continue to make to each other every day.
Share the love!
Give back to your favorite charity or organization! This could be in a monetary donation, donating clothes, volunteering at a food bank, helping at an animal shelter, or whatever charity pulls at your heart strings. Spending time with someone you love, helping others, it doesn’t get much better than that.
Plan a staycation (or vacation)
Staycations are my favorite, but sometimes you need to get out of town. Planning a staycation or vacation is such a fun way to spend an anniversary! Booking a cute air bnb or staying in that fancy hotel in a nearby city is something you probably wouldn’t normally do, but why not!
Do something adventurous together!
Take a hike somewhere you’ve never been, go ziplining, take a helicopter ride, whatever gets your adrenaline pumping, do that!
Get some R-&-R
With the busy lives that all of us lead, sometimes you just need a break and what a better excuse than your anniversary?? Take the day off, have a spa day or just spend the day with the person that you love the most. Whatever helps you relax and unwind, your anniversary is the perfect day for that!
Recreate your first date!
Take a little trip down memory lane for your special day! Recreating your first date, going to the restaurant you got engaged at or going and spending some time at the place you got married is the perfect way to relive those memories!
Wear a piece of your wedding day!
Whether it’s your something blue, the socks or tie you wore on the big day, your wedding jewelry or shoes, these items will bring back all the amazing memories of your big day!
Having an anniversary tradition not only makes you look forward to the day, but also helps you look forward to the fun that you get to have on that day. However you decide to spend your anniversary, there’s no right or wrong way, as long as you’re with the person you love that most, that’s all that matters!
