Or make something together, like a photo album or scrapbook of the previous year’s events.
I don’t think I have ever watched my wedding video. But what’s the point of having a video made if you are not going to watch it?
So for next year, we have decided to go for a hot air balloon ride.
Yes, it’s expensive, but we are planning ahead to spend a little more next year since it will be a milestone year.
Another idea is for each person to make a CD to share with the other. My husband and I just celebrated our fourth anniversary.
And yet again, we went out to a restaurant, which was great, but dining out is nothing new or particularly exciting.
Perhaps you could stop at the place you had your first kiss or the church where you were married. Another idea is to simply take a photo of you together each year on your anniversary.
As the years go by, perhaps your anniversaries begin to sneak up on you, with you and your loved one seemingly always ending up going out to dinner .
Your anniversary is a great opportunity to remember that special day, so dust off that wedding DVD and watch highlights together.
If you don’t have one, perhaps you have a video of a vacation you took or another memorable occasion.
Or perhaps the big day comes and goes, and you don’t do anything at all because you are on a tight budget and can’t think of something to do that is celebratory, memorable, and won’t cost a fortune.
(Sure, a trip to the wine country sounds perfect; but is it worth refinancing your home and mortgage to finance this?
