A few days ago my husband and I celebrated our fifth year Wedding Anniversary. As the day approached, I kept thinking of ways to celebrate another milestone in our married life. The reason why I wanted to celebrate this year so much was because I wanted to remind myself of how incredibly blessed I am to be married to my husband and how I don’t ever want to take that for granted (because believe me, oftentimes I do). So I came with 3 ways to celebrate this year and I’d like to share it with you so you can celebrate your wedding anniversary in these 3 delightful ways too!
- Get something that both of you will equally enjoy.
Birthdays are the perfect time to give gifts to people who are special to you, so what better way to celebrate your wedding anniversary than to get you both this one thing that you know you will get to use together. I mean sure a new playstation sounds fun…for most husbands, but not for most wives. And while a new pair of shoes sounds nice for your wife, a husband may not be able to rock his look with the same pair. My husband and I enjoy taking videos and photos of our out-of-town trips so we saved up and finally got our selves a GoPro! Because of this gift, I know we will both get to capture so many of our adventures together! What do you and your wife/husband love to do together? Get something that you will both equally enjoy!
- Go on a trip just for two.
Whether you have kids or don’t, your wedding anniversary is a special time to reconnect with your spouse. It’s a time when you can look back and remember things that you are both grateful for, things that you learned about each other and things to look forward to, to give you both renewed hope so you could keep pressing on. Leave your kids with your parents or other family members and just enjoy some down time with your spouse. It doesn’t even have to be out of town, book a hotel in your city and unwind with a massage for two, a dip in the pool and then maybe cap the night off with a glass of wine or two. My husband and I finally got to visit Bucas Grande in Surigao and I must say, I forgot all about the city as soon as I stepped on the boat and I got to once again just reconnect with my husband as we got to explore a new place together. What’s more, we got to make new friends too!!
- Schedule a photo shoot!
I know this takes some effort to do but that’s exactly why you should do it. It’s one of those few times that you both make a conscious effort to get all dressed up and have personal keepsakes of such a special milestone in your married life. We asked some of our photographer friends if they could spare us a few hours of their time to do this shoot for us and I think they did such a wonderful job plus I now have new photos to put on picture frames around our home!
So there you go, 3 easy and delightful ways to celebrate your wedding anniversary. At the end of the day though, however you celebrate the milestones in your married life is really all up to you as long as that’s exactly what you do— celebrate. Now get out there and start planning your next wedding anniversary! Cheers!
