We're almost at the five month mark, and I've been thinking a bit about what we might do to celebrate our wedding anniversary this year.

Our wedding was such a special event, and meant so much to us, that I'd really like to do something special each year to keep the memory alive, and remind ourselves of why it was we got married and chose to share our lives together.

It doesn't necessarily need to be something extravagent or really expensive, but maybe something romantic and something which will add to our treasure chest of memories over the years.

I was also thinking of starting up an "Anniversary Album". Each wedding anniversary, we could put something in there (like a photo, ticket butt, something relating to how we spent the day) giving us a little reminder of how we shared and celebrated our anniversary.

What sort of things have you done / or would like to do, to celebrate your wedding anniversaries?

For our first anniversary we went to my cousins wedding in the morning, then that night went back to the restaurant where our reception was held for dinner.

This year we may go back there again, this time with my Mum and step dad as it's my Mum's birthday on the same day.

We haven't really spoken about it this year, all I've done so far is ask for the day off work. biggrin.gif

Kathryn, surely you can't be talking about your SECOND wedding anniversary already??

Our original plans were to have the day just bumming around the cooking a dinner together... and we kinda threw that all in by sleeping in, did our grocery shopping, ate our wedding cake then had an all out extravagant dinner at a very swish restaurant (something we won't be repeating anytime soon!).

I actually booked our "anniversary" night this week - a night in a 5 star hotel in Melbourne - spa and room service and valet parking biggrin.gif (although I cannot believe it is nearly a year already!) BUT we are actually doing it on the 20th biggrin.gif because we have our first rally for the season on the 13th (and will be at rally scrutiny o the 10th!!!! tongue.gif ) So the plan is to book in early Saturday (2ish) and check out late on Sunday (2ish) smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif

We usually go out for dinner, the 1st year we went out for the day to a country craft fair, took a picnic lunch & came home & had wine/cheese platter & watched our wedding video.

We have close friends who's anniversary is 2 days before ours, so one year we went out to tea with them to celebrate together.

I will never let my husband forget what he got me for our FIRST wedding anniversary - NOTHING!!! thats right - he got me NOTHING! ohmy.gif

Granted, he had booked a car so we could drive out to the vineyards on Long Island in New York, which was very appropriate since we had been married at a vineyard. But he didn't even buy me a card! I was just devastated! I couldn't believe it. I had bought a leather album, and put photos of us through the years in it, had written a poem asking that he put a picture in each year just of us (he hasn't touched it since, I suppose it was a bit girlie).

He then went on to claim "but I got you this great car for the day!" It was a red Mustang, which would've been nice had he not just told me that while he was picking up the hire car, HE HAPPENED TO MENTION that it was our first wedding anniversary and the lady behind the counter said "I'll give you a nice one then". He didn't ask for it, it was just pure luck!

I try not to remind him of it too much, as he felt sooo bad, he claims he couldn't think what to get me and then just panicked. He ended up buying me a beautiful stationary box (paper anniversary). But we have since made a pact that I buy him a present for our Australian wedding anniversary in April, then he has three weeks notice to get me a present in time for our London wedding anniversary in May. Its working well so far, last year was our second wedding anniversary and to make up for the first one, he bought me a pair of diamond earrings he had designed himself.

Our third anniversary is soon so we'll see what happens this year. I'd be happy with a dinner out and a nice bottle of plonk!

I didn't get a card from Eddie either. Pooey, after I made one in our wedding colours and remainding papers too! My boy just doesn't do (well, rarely!) cards.

We are planning on staying in the same hotel room that we stayed in on our wedding night and having dinner in our reception venue so I'm sure that will be lovely.

On presents - I have already bought Evan his - a copy of a Steve Waugh posted thingy (you know the ones they sell during the cricket) because it's paper. I will also get him some gold class movie tickets.

On the other hand, Evan is not that creative so I will probably get flowers! (Not that I mind that much!)

One way is by for example - every second year the opposite picks out what to do. For example - if you are married in 2004 then in 2005 and the odd years - your husband picks out what to do. Whilst in the even years like 2006 etc...you pick out what to do. also you can set yourself little budgets and incorporate it into your relationship.

Have Fun - Moz

Yes thankfully.

He's got 7 weeks holidays over that time so I'm guaranteed he will be home. Phew!!!

We're heading off overseas 2 weeks after the anniversary so that's our pressie to each other. tongue.gif
