Getting married should be one of the best days of your life. It is the time where you commit to your partner for better or worse. So why wouldn’t you want to celebrate that memorable day throughout the years? A marriage is something that takes work and dedication, so it’s nice to remember your journey as each year passes. So I thought I would share with you some great ways you can celebrate your marriage throughout the years. I hope it inspires you to make some of your own traditions.
Special gifts for milestone anniversaries
Certain milestone years celebrate something different. For one year of marriage your gift should be something to do with paper, in fifty years it is gold. You have diamond, platinum, silver, wood. Everything you can think of, and thankfully there is a list online. So you may want to commemorate your wedding anniversary by sticking to this tradition. It’s a wonderful way to get creative.
Snap a picture on your anniversary each year
A lovely way to commemorate the day is taking a photograph at the same point each year. It could start with a wedding picture, and then the following year hold the wedding picture in your hands and have a new picture taken. Each year hold the previous image. It’s a wonderful way to see how you both, and your family changes, throughout the years.
Consider renewing your vows
Some couples want to relive the magic of the wedding day all over again and choose to renew their vows on big milestone points. Things like ten years, twenty years or even more, the choice is yours. There are some great ways to consider vow renewals. You could recreate your whole day by picking the same place and location, or try something different like a beach ceremony on a faraway shore. It’s a lovely way to reconnect with one another and reaffirm your commitment.
Let your daughter try on your wedding dress and snap a shot
If you decide to start a family and you have a daughter together a cute thing to do is let her try on your wedding dress and snap a shot. It’s such an innocent and wonderful snap that could be used in years to come at her wedding. It’s a fantastic way to showcase how far your marriage has come and how it all started.
Re-take your wedding pictures in years to come
Finally, one thing a couple always tend to look back on over the years is those wedding photographs. They are a lasting reminder of your wedding and marriage. So a great way to celebrate that is to relive those portrait poses in years to come. Perhaps pose once more in the same way or go back to your wedding location and reshoot the whole day. It’s a great way to look back on how far you have come and celebrate a marriage.
I hope these ideas have inspired you with some alternative ways to celebrate your wedding anniversary.
