First anniversary – ten ways to celebrate
Your first anniversary is definitely worth celebrating in style, so why not take inspiration from our top ten first anniversary ideas?
Congratulations! Celebrating your first year as a married couple is so exciting. It confirms your status as a proper husband and wife and it's a time to look to the future together -- although you'll certainly be remembering your wedding day with fond memories too! This landmark anniversary is definitely worth celebrating, so take inspiration from us and plan one of these special ideas for your paper anniversary...
Rewind to the wedding
A year ago today, you tied the knot, and it's all too easy to forget the little details of the day. So turn off the phone, lock the doors and settle down to watch your wedding video. You might even recreate some of your wedding menu highlights to nibble on as you flick through your wedding photos -- and don't forget to put on your sexiest wedding nightwear as you relive your first official night together. Or second night, perhaps...
Bedding and breakfast
A sweet, easy and very romantic way to treat your spouse is breakfast in bed. Take time to make their favourite dish -- try scrambled eggs on lightly toasted crumpets with smoked salmon on the side -- and serve with a flower and anniversary card. Eat together at your leisure as you rejoice in a year of waking up married together.
If there's a swish restaurant that either of you have always wanted to dine in, surely the first evening of your anniversary is the time to splash out and do it. Remember to book in advance and make it exciting by getting ready and arriving separately so it's just like a first date... except you know who you'll be going home with.
Get away from it all with a little second honeymoon and allow yourselves to reconnect as a couple. Choose somewhere you've always wanted to visit -- the world, quite literally, is your oyster, and with no-one but the two of you around, you'll have no choice but to bask in each other's glory.
