Re: How do you celebrate your wedding anniversaries?

We don't normally spalsh outtoo much. Iin teh early days we just nipped off for a night in a rustic B&B, to keep costs down.

For our 10th, I planned something special.
I came home at lunch time the day before, whilse my wife was at home with the 2 yr old - our youngest. I put them both in the car (wherein, unbeknownst to my wife were clothes, packed) - and drove down to my parents. Where we dropped off the toddler, and my father gave us a lift to the airport.

Basicallly, I kidnapped my wife and took her to Paris for a few days.

All her friends knew, so they blithely agreed to all the plans to meet for lunch, etc, knowing she wouldn't be there. My work knew. My parents knew (my mother came up to look after the children, bringing the toddler with, whilst friends picked up the older ones from school - so the school knew too ....)

I'd packed clothes she'd be happy to wear, but wouldn't notice were missing, booked flights, hotel, everything.
And she had no clue at all.

That remains the absolute pinacle of my romantic achievements!

Since then we tend to go for a weekend break somewhere we haven't been before - like Vienna, or Prague, or Berlin. Last time we decided we'd go skiing, and take the kids too, but it counted anyway.

After 16 years, it's easier to decide between us, than to spring surprises!

We have always tried to go away together to a B&B or a resort. We go to a resort in the Riveria Maya every other year. Last summer for our 40th we went to a resort in Sunny Isles Beach (there are pics on my profile page). We have always made a high priority of getting away alone together without the kids or any family...even if it was an inexpensive motel. We don't always go on the exact day but it is within a month of the actual day. It is always an incredibly romantic and sexy time!

The marriage bed must be a place of mutuality—the husband seeking to satisfy his wife, the wife seeking to satisfy her husband. Marriage is not a place to "stand up for your rights." Marriage is a decision to serve the other, whether in bed or out. 1 Corinthians 7:2 (The Message)

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.
That's an awesome idea... which I am stealing for our 20th in a couple of years.

Re: How do you celebrate your wedding anniversaries?

Next June would be our 18th.
I usually take her to exclusive restaurants for our Anniversaries and Valentines Day.
She likes fine dining.
But next year I think I'll surprise with something different.

[ Can't post it here because sometimes she may read my posts.]

I guess I'll post it after.
Maybe with pics.

Try to treat every day as if it is your anniversary.
