2. Anniversary Themes: Which One to Choose?
This is the fun part! Choose your colors, decor, and much more! Picking the ultimate theme will be sure to elevate your experience. Our article, 5 Unique Party Themes to Celebrate Your Anniversary, explores themes.
3. Who Will Attend?
Depending on how big or small you are planning your gathering, it’s going to be crucial to get your list of invitees together! First, you will want to take some time to select your design for your invitations. Next, you should start sending out your invitations around 6-8 weeks in advance so that guests have time to plan and prepare for your important day!
If you know your date much earlier in advance, you should consider sending out save the dates to your guests, especially if some of them may be arriving from far away. This process should alleviate some stress as it will help you get a general idea of who will be attending your event.
In addition, if you have a dress code, it’s important to note that on the invitation.
Here is how you should set up your invitations:
- Amount of years you are celebrating with your beloved.
- Include both of your names
- Add a photo of the two of you to make it personal (optional)
- Date, location, and time.
- A small note of appreciation (optional)
- Dress code (if you have one)
4. What’s on the Menu?
Having your food arrangements set in stone is essential, so everyone remains happy! A buffet-style setting might be great for self-serving options; however, if you are preparing to have a significant amount of guests in attendance, you might want to consider a catering option. You could also speak to a family member and decide on a smaller fee for their cooking services.
Don’t forget to order the cake! If the traditional cake cutting is your thing, schedule that in advance with a baker of your choosing. No matter which catering option you choose, be sure to include wine/cocktails, non-alcoholic drinks, and vegan and vegetarian options to ensure that you meet all your guests’ needs.
5. Capturing the Moment
No matter what you decide on your special day, you will want to have these moments captured and cherished for years to come. So, as you reflect on your budget, consider meeting with a photographer to discuss your needs and expectations in advance so that everyone is in agreement and your day goes smoothly!
