Do you or a loved one have an anniversary coming up? If so, please accept our congratulations! Whether the lovebirds have been married one year, 10 years, or 50 years – a special anniversary party is an exciting time to gather friends and family for an extra special celebration. If you’re wondering how you can make an anniversary celebration extra special….keep reading.
With so many sources available on the internet to get your creative juices flowing, we know it can be a bit overwhelming. That’s why we want to share four practical ways to plan your special event.
1. RENT A UNIQUE VENUE FOR YOUR ANNIVERSARY PARTY
A unique party venue that reflects the couple is a fantastic way to celebrate their anniversary. Here are just a few examples: if the couple shares a love for the arts or music contact The Palace Theatre in Albany; if the couple enjoys the outdoors contact Saratoga Spa State Park to rent a pavilion; if the couple enjoys horse back riding contact The Barn at Liberty Farm in Hudson. Whatever interests the couple has, we are confident that you will find the perfect venue.
2. PICK A THEME
You might assume that the “anniversary” is the only theme needed for your celebration, but we suggest taking it a step further and selecting a coordinating theme that reflects the couple. A theme can be based off of the couple’s favorite movie, book, music or cuisine. For example, if the couple loves art deco you may want to opt for a Great Gatsby inspired celebration; if the couple loves music add a little retro audio flair by decorating the venue with vintage vinyl records; if the couple enjoys global cuisine opt for a station style dinner and offer guests a variety of food options. No matter what coordinating theme you choose, the couple of honor will appreciate your hard work!
3. SEND OUT INVITATIONS, COMPLETE WITH RSVP REQUESTS
We’ve learned over the years that no two anniversaries are the same and therefore the invitation style should reflect the theme of the party and unique personalities of the couple. When selecting your personalized invitations, include RSVP information so that you have an accurate guest count and guests can notify you of dietary restrictions or food allergies. Trust us, the RSVP is essential!
4. GET FRIENDS & FAMILY INVOLVED
There’s nothing like getting loved ones involved to make an anniversary celebration even more meaningful. Some celebrations have chosen the couple’s children and/or grandchildren to share funny stories, heartwarming mini-biographies about how the couple got together or what the couple means to them. Others have had friends and extended family create scrapbooks or memory walls that can be displayed during the event for all to enjoy. If the couple has a good sense of humor we suggest having a “couple’s roast” in which friends and family can present a mocking tribute to the couple of honor. We guarantee that getting friends and family involved will make your anniversary party unforgettable.
