The Best Wedding Anniversary Party Celebration Ideas

Top Wedding Celebration Party Ideas


Every wedding anniversary is special. Whether it's one year or 30 years, your own anniversary or family or friends- you want to throw a wedding anniversary party that's unforgettable. Here are a few tips.

If your wedding anniversary is coming up, and you want to make it a special celebration, you might need a little inspiration. Coming up with the perfect wedding anniversary party celebration that fits both your imagination and your budget can be tough. Here are some ideas to help you create the wedding anniversary party of your dreams:

  • Traditionally. Each wedding anniversary year has its symbols and its flowers (paper for the first year, for example or daffodils for the 10th). Use the traditions as the theme for your wedding anniversary party. For example, you could have daffodils on the wedding anniversary invitations and the cake. Or make paper mache decorations for a unique atmosphere, with blank cards on the tables for guests to write in.

  • Intimately. Inviting just the closest of friends and family, you can either reserve a room at a your favorite restaurant and celebrate your wedding anniversary, or you can have a homey feel and organize a pot-luck. Using the original wedding memorabilia (the wedding cake decorations or invites) adds a nostalgic touch.

  • Larger-Than-Life. For the really big wedding anniversary party celebrations, planning ahead can make it memorable. This is especially true of making a wedding anniversary video, like 'This Is Your Marriage,' with everyone held dear sharing memories. Again, it doesn't have to break the bank to make it special- raid old photo albums and have them blown up at a copy shop to decorate. You can also have guests help make a scrapbook, with favorite moments written on each page.

  • Modern. When you're looking for a more relaxed and different wedding anniversary party celebration, try thinking outside the box. Reserve tickets in a stadium section for guests at a baseball game, for example, with tickets included in the wedding anniversary invitation. Or make it theme-oriented, where anything goes from asking people to arrive in costume to having a dinner-mystery or a wine-tasting party with a slide show.

  • Entertaining. The wedding anniversary party celebration could be a collective performance: sketches, skits, speeches and even songs done by friends and family can be unforgettable. Organize a night of acts focused on the wedding anniversary, the couple (if it's not yours) and anecdotes and memories.

There are so many options to choose from when you're planning the perfect wedding anniversary party celebration. It's only a matter of customizing it to fit the celebration of the marriage to make it truly special.
