People say that marriage is the most sacred bond. While there are many relationships, precious ones, which deserve to be celebrated, many special bonds that we share with our parents, sisters or brothers, friends, relatives, marriage definitely has a special place among them. Brides and grooms vow to love, adore, respect, and value each other throughout their wedded life.
Hence, anniversaries definitely are a great opportunity for us to take the time and the effort to show our appreciation, our love, and our affection to our loved ones. After all, it isn’t for no reason that husbands and wives go to such great lengths to plan their first, fifth, tenth, twenty-fifth, and even fiftieth anniversaries, marking the beautiful time they have spent with one another. It celebrates companionship, it celebrates togetherness, and most importantly, it celebrates the love you have for your significant other.
Isn’t it only natural that you should invest some time and effort in planning your very first anniversary celebrations? But, instead of going for the generic anniversary plans, organize something new and unique which will make your husband/wife feel extra special.
Read on to find out 5 interesting ways to celebrate your very first anniversary:
1. A Private Picnic
No, not just a usual picnic, but a picnic at a place that you both hold very dear to yourself. Say, the place where you met for the first time, or the place where he/she proposed marriage to you. This way, you can go down the memory lane and ponder on the wonderful moments you have shared with each other.
2. Do It The ‘P.S. I Love You’ Way
Remember how Gerry left Holly a trail of letters for her to find after he’ll be gone? Well, you can adopt the idea and improvise it a little. Kind of a treasure hunt, but, much more romantic. Leave a trail of letters along with hints, leading to, say, a destination dinner, or a very grand boat ride.
3. Get Couple Tattoos
Mark your first year of togetherness with something that will stay with you forever. You can make a day out of this. Get all glam, go for a lovely brunch, visit your favourite spots in/around the city, and end the day at a tattoo parlour getting a set of couple tattoos, like n infinity symbol, or the date when you went on your first date, a star and a sun, etc.
4. Plan A trip
Okay, this may sound generic at first, but, there are so many things you could do to make this trip memorable and very, very romantic. This option is especially feasible for those who couldn’t go on a honeymoon together. So, a planned trip to a destination you both love would serve as your honeymoon as well as mark your first year of togetherness.
5. Dinner Amongst the Stars
You can wine and dine with your loved one, literally amongst the stars. Hire a hot air balloon and mark your anniversary with extreme exclusivity and romance. Hot air balloon services are available in Karnataka, Maharashtra, and Rajasthan.
This is your most special day. Whatever you do, don’t allow financial challenges to get in the way of celebrating the wonderful union you share. Set aside the time and get creative! What creative date ideas do you have for celebrating anniversaries? Share in comments bellow!
