While all anniversaries are special to married couples, the first year anniversary is one of the most special. It shows that you’ve made it a full year as a couple and that you’re still together and still in love. That’s why it’s a good idea to find a memorable way to celebrate this anniversary.
Try doing something really romantic to celebrate your first year together. Put together your wedding video and watch it together so you can relive that special day. If money isn’t an issue, go on a second honeymoon to the place you went originally. Another option is to rent a luxury hotel room for the night and spend a romantic night together. Order room service the next morning and have breakfast in bed.
Choose special gifts for each other. This can be anything from a balloon bouquet and roses to a beautiful piece of engraved jewelry. Other ideas in between are such things as engraved coffee mugs, personalized wine glasses and a bottle of wine, earrings for her and cufflinks for him. There are so many different directions you can go in when you want to make your first anniversary the special occasion that it is.
You can actually combine any of these and turn the day and night into something that is totally memorable. Rent the luxury hotel room, or even the honeymoon suite, for an entire weekend. Plan a dinner out at a nice restaurant and then see a movie or play that you’ve wanted to see. When you return to your hotel room, have wine or champagne, and a tray of fruit, cheese, and chocolates ready to enjoy together. One of the nights you’re there, order room service for dinner and make that entire night about the two of you without leaving the room.
Something to remember is not to force anything just because it sounds “correct.” However the two of you choose to spend your first anniversary, make sure it’s something that you both love to do and will be a memorable experience to look back on in the years to come. Make this day all about the two of you as a couple as you celebrate. You’ll remember it for the rest of your lives.
