Re: How do you celebrate your wedding anniversaries?



This year we celebrated 34 years together. As in years past we ... get away 4 the weekend but this year we did not get 2 do it as we went back East 2 visit family as my father is not well so we spent sometime w/ them as my father is not well.

We got back home on Friday which meant that we would have 2 ah wait for a get away trip till the fall. It was good to spend time back home visiting family.

On our anniversary though we went 2 church & as it is on every Sunday my daughter's fiancé comes over for lunch & spends time w/ us so this year we grilled out. So, we hope to get away this fall for a weekend trip & have some ALONE TIME so that is what we normally do each year. We get away in the spring each year and then again in the fall of the year !!

together for 34 years & still going strong

Re: How do you celebrate your wedding anniversaries?

Been married 24 years in August and probably the first ten years it was a lot of exciting stuff, but at this point it's flowers and taking her out to a very nice restaraunt every year and that's about it.

Re: How do you celebrate your wedding anniversaries?

We typically go back to the place we had our wedding reception at for dinner. We generally plan it together, although since it is the same place every year, we don't have to plan too much. We just celebrated our 29th.

This included the years that each of our children was born (Great years), and the years that each of her parents died (sad events are part of life, too). In the big card that I bought with it, I placed 25 more of the little cards like were on the roses, but I left them blank. In the big card itself, I thanked her for the best 25 years of my life, and told her I was looking forward to the next 25 years with her and whatever those years may bring.
My tears drop, beautiful and remind me of my parent
R.I.P mama and
Happy anniversary to all of you who are celebrating now
May we all are happy and healthy always, amen.

Re: How do you celebrate your wedding anniversaries?

I'm touched when my husband bring me home living 'orchids - Phalaenopsis amabilis - white' as remind me of my home sweet home. No card what so ever though the way he put it in the corner of our master bed room and my night stand are gorgeous. I feel happy every time I see those orchids. The most beautiful and memorable 50usd gift I ever received.

My husband really enjoy 'Tj. Pandan' trip I gave him as he gave me 'Lake Tahoe' years before. Our most romantic trip was 'Bali' indeed.

Yes, we take turn on arranging the anniversary. The budget will start from zero to hero (i.e massaging each other for free ) up to certain amount we both saving for the year.

We never give each other expensive 'gadget' or 'branded' things etc. We prefer to see the world, learning other culture and people, enjoys local foods etc. If ever related to money other than 'travelling' we gave each other thing will have value in the future (I gave him CD, stocks, foreign money etc. and he gave me gold, art/antique/painting etc. This is my idea as how I raised and a new thing for him. He is super duper in board about the idea as he is now debt free, pay off his student loan and he told me it was the best gift he ever received - wife mission accomplished - home run - ).

We getaway to one of the Hawaiian islands, trying to find a less crowded place. Last year was Molokai and a wonderful three days of empty beaches and a cottage on the shore.

Re: How do you celebrate your wedding anniversaries?

The last couple of years as the children have got older we have gone away somewhere nice for the night. Before that just a meal out or a cosy night in.
The last 2 years were very difficult as we were going through our problems, but, we made it through and next year, 20 years we are planning our first holiday without the kids.
I've always wanted to go to Rome, so I think that's where we are heading, probably for 5 nights. Going to start planning it in January.

Re: How do you celebrate your wedding anniversaries?

For our 20th we took a long weekend in Reykjavik (wow, spelled right the first time) this fall. But normally we're low key, a kiss, a happy anniversary and some lovin'. We're both so not gift type people.

We did Rome summer 2011, our first real vacation not at the country house in about 15 years. Was wonderful and we did discuss how it did bring us closer together. Have fun.



Sigh, my wife gives me the speaking treatment.

Go out to dinner usually.

We will celebrate our 18th on December 24th. Don't celebrate the same every year. Often that night is busy getting ready for Christmas morning (being I'm Santa ). We do go out to dinner, just not every year.

A Christmas Eve dinner here easily runs $75/person. Normally I make all the arrangements. This year, surprise my wife is making dinner reservations.
