The Importance of Celebrating a Wedding Anniversary


How important do you think celebrating a wedding anniversary is? Do you think you think spending more money on your 25th anniversary than your wedding is controversial?


How I got here

I’ve been thinking about this quite a lot since I got invited to the mother of all Silver Wedding Anniversary parties next year by a dear friend. She was fairly young when she got married, without lots of money, but decided to save it for a house deposit. I guess that sums up most of the current generation of newly weds and engaged couples too.

So her wedding was a fabulous day, but undertaken on a budget. 25 years on and with a little more finance, she and her partner are going to have a renewal of their vows and going full on. They are organising a big wedding party with a wedding dress and everything that they couldn’t afford originally.

This got me thinking. With so many marriages breaking down, doesn’t celebrating a wedding anniversary actually matter more? To is celebrate decades of successful and caring partnership? It certainly is much more of an achievement!


My take on wedding anniversaries

So here’s to all of you enjoying long marriages. Be proud of your achievement and consider holding a party to celebrate the years or even decades of love, understanding, compromises, and support. Invite all your friends and family and celebrate your enduring love publicly!


Celebrating Wedding Anniversaries is important


So why not consider inviting your friends and family to a weekend getaway where you can spend valuable time with your favourite people and create new long-lasting memories. You can your partner will be able to renew your vows in a relaxed and cosy environment. You can also hire a caterer to serve an incredible multiple-course meal or have a big old barbecue, a hot tub for people to relax in, organise a game tournament or invite various entertainers and activity providers to spice up your stay with some out-of-the-box animation.
