A big part of choosing your Anniversary Party theme is thinking about who you are inviting to the party because for a great Anniversary celebration filled with memorable moments you will want everyone to join in.
You could have the most thought out theme ever but if everyone just stands around awkwardly it isn't going to be much fun.
Before you make a list of anniversary themes that you want, make a list of who you are going to invite;
This way you will be able to choose a theme that you love and also that your guests will too.
When you have your guest list together you will need to think about the venues that will be able to hold your numbers. That in itself will also help you narrow down your theme ideas. Plus can you fit a dance floor if you want to dance the night away, are they able to have a live band if you want one.
Equally you could start with your theme, then invite all your favorite people that you know will love it and then find a venue that will work for your theme and your guests. There is no correct way to planyour own anniversary party apart from the way that works for you.
Before you start thinking about your theme another thing to think about is whether you would like to renew your wedding vows. Your Wedding Anniversary party is a wonderful time to renew your wedding vows where you are surrounded by your close friends and relatives and can share your true love that has grown over the years of marriage.
It is a great start to a wedding anniversary celebration and will be the perfect reminder of your Wedding Day. This may mean that you will have two venues for your Anniversary party just like you did at your Wedding. The first is where you are renewing your vows and then you would go on to your party. Timings will be everything especially if you want a later evening party, your vow renewal will need to be later in the day too. Just like at a wedding you will want to leave time for photographs and then also time for everyone to get to the party venue.
A number of couples like to wait till a big milestone Anniversary such as your 50th Anniversary but it is also a lovely thing to do if you are celebrating a big event or celebrating getting through a big year.
Your Anniversary party is the perfect opportunity to celebrate with the Anniversary theme of this year, you can then use the traditional color of this year's symbol to find party supplies that fit with your theme.
If you are planning a party for the Happy Couple the best way to ensure they love it is to get a few of you together to plan the big day. Try and have a chat with the couple as to what they would like to have if they did have an Anniversary party. A great way is to talk about friends who have recently planned or celebrated an Anniversary and see what their thoughts are and if they have been to any great Anniversary parties that they have enjoyed.
When it comes to planning a surprise party you will also need to have a plan in place on how to bring the couple to the party and who is responsible for that! You really don't want them turning up to their party early.
A Cocktail Party is a really fun and sophisticated party, you could hold it at home but equally you could hold it at a local venue. This could be a hotel ballroom or function room and it could also be a really fantastic awesome unusual local venue.
Ideas for your venue could come from your favorite hobby maybe
Or you could look at venues that look amazing
With it being a cocktail party it would be nice to welcome your guests with a cocktail, you could choose your favorite or have big punch bowls ready to serve your guests. What you don't want is your guests to have to wait while everyone's cocktail is mixed that will take too long.
You could have a bar where the bar staff are mixing drinks all the time but limit the choice for your guests otherwise it will again take too long to serve everyone.
You could both have your favorite cocktail or theme your cocktails to your Anniversary.
There are a number of ways to hold a wine tasting party,
Or if you all love your wine you could get everyone to bring their favorite couple of bottles and get them to share what they love about it. If you are doing this yourselves at home it will be a good idea to hire in extra wine glasses otherwise you will need to do a lot of cleaning up.
For your Anniversary Party Theme to work, especially if there is a dress code or it's a costume party you will need to let your guests know what to expect.
They will then know what to wear and timings and where to go. Your invitations will do just that by setting the scene.
As well as your Wedding Anniversary Party theme as an idea it is the extra pieces and little things that make the themed party a memorable party.
As part of your planning process you will want to have a think about
