Your 1st wedding anniversary had better be special, it's the first of many so you want it to be good! Years from now you will want to be able to look back and have a story from your first anniversary and what better way to celebrate 365 days of marriage than by celebrating your wedding.
Here are some gorgeous ways to create treasures for years to come;
Your 1st wedding anniversary gifts are traditionally celebrated with paper and if you haven't managed to get your photos printed or put in an album then now would be a really good time, before you get tied up in all sorts of other stuff that marriage brings!
If you love your wedding photos so much you could have your favorite printed onto canvas, a reminder of your special day.
Or this fun canvas of the two of you with your names and "Forever..."
You could also have a sketch or painting from your wedding day, a popular trend at the moment is to have your wedding dress sketched or you could have your bouquet or an original painting of the two of you.
Or you could have this fun caricature of the two of you. All you need to do is email them a photo that you would like to have turned into a photo.Available from Personal Creations
Roses are always romantic and therefore a rose made from paper for your 1st anniversary has to be the most romantic flower there is!
This one is from Just Paper Roses and there are lots more to choose from.
There are also roses with your own photograph on, life like paper roses, or origami orchids.
Crazy as that may sound, paper jewelry makes a great 1st anniversary gifts.
And there are some beautiful handcrafted pieces available from Novica from Artisans around the world.Find the Perfect Anniversary Gift at NOVICA

Other paper gifts would be;
Other fun stuff to do on your first anniversary would be to watch your wedding video and maybe even dance again to your first dance.
You could also have your wedding meal all over again, the one that you probably didn't get to enjoy as you were so busy enjoying the day! This could mean a trip back to your wedding venue or you could surprise your other half by cooking it yourself or have fun recreating it together.
And if you are going to get your dancing shoes on and cook a great meal why not invite a few friends round and have a party! It doesn't have to be anything extravagant, infact you probably want a more chilled day after all the excitement of the past year.
And how about renewing your wedding vows? This does not mean another big celebration like your wedding, it could be just the two of you in your favorite place in the world saying the same vows you said a year ago. You could add extra bits to your vows and start a lovely traditional that is just for the two of you.
If you didn't manage to have the wedding you wanted due to any number of reasons; military, financial or family issues, then if you can now why not celebrate in style!
Have fun celebrating your marriage and enjoy your first one together.
