Life is different right now and we are living in the times of COVID-19 and if you have to celebrate major milestones during this time, don’t get upset! You may be feeling down that you can’t go out to that fancy restaurant or take that exotic trip you were planning but you can still celebrate your anniversary very well even staying at home.
Decorate The House
Set the dining room table, pull out that fancy wedding china, pick some flowers from the garden, light the candles, etc! Want to recreate the setting from your first date? Do it! Did you have a special theme from your wedding day? Get creative! You can find so many sweet decorations around the house to put together the perfect romantic setting.
Cook And Bake Together
Cook your wedding dinner or bake your wedding cake! How sweet would it be to try and recreate your wedding reception meal together?! If you can’t do that, pick a meal that holds special significance. Did you have your Honeymoon in Italy? Make it a pasta night! First date at the local Mexican restaurant? Tacos! It doesn’t have to be fancy as long as it speaks to you as a couple.
Get Dressed Up
Just because you’re not going out doesn’t mean to can’t get dressed up! If you want to, it could even be fun to pull out your wedding dress and wear it again for the evening!
Break Out The Wedding Album + Video
Wouldn’t it be sweet to celebrate your anniversary by reminiscing about the day? Pull out your wedding photos and enjoy some time looking at them together. Remember each moment and why you’re so grateful to be with the other person. On the same note, watch your wedding video! You may not have even seen it for a while!
Give Homemade Gifts
You may find you have some extra time on your hands right now and nothing says “I Love You” like a handmade gift! We’ve got some super cute and fun DIYs to give you some ideas!
Share your vows again. Since it’s just the two of you, you have a perfect opportunity to share this intimate moment together. Most likely, on wedding day, you shared your vows in front of dozens of people. It can be super special to renew the vows again with no one else around!
Finish the Night
Round out the night with a sweet activity like stargazing in the yard, sparklers, or releasing sky lanterns (if you are somewhere safe to do that). You can even make this a new anniversary tradition!
