Simply put, this is a way to celebrate your anniversary and your marriage. Everyone does the clichéd dinners and holidays for their anniversary, but we have some special ideas for you to celebrate these occasions. It could be your first, third or fifth anniversary - and we have ways for you to celebrate your union day all over again!
1. Write Your Vows
Writing your own vows to each other is in fashion now, but that probably wasn’t the “in” thing when you got married. You both must have been through many ups and downs together, and your anniversary gives you a day to relive your wedding vows by personalizing them. Write down your promises to each other and let your partner know how much you love them.
2. A White Wedding Theme Party
We’ve all dreamt of the wedding song in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, and wished for a white wedding, haven’t we? Well, this is possible now! Throw a white wedding themed party for your friends and family. Dress up in a white gown and become a bride all over again!
3. Relive Your Proposal
Go back to the spot where the wedding proposal happened. If it was somewhere on the outskirts of the city, take the day off and plan a picnic/ road trip there. Relive the day on which you said, “Yes” to him.

4. The Post Wedding Shoot
If you missed the opportunity to have a pre-wedding shoot back then, you could always have one done now. And if you have kids now, you could include them in your photos too, and create beautiful memories together as a family.
5. Wedding Festivities Re-Run
It might feel a bit OTT to wear your bridal lehenga all over again, but you could always get into your sangeet or cocktail outfit and relive your wedding celebrations. Throw a small party for your friends and family, and be the blushing bride again! This also gives you an opportunity to take out your wedding outfits and relive all those beautiful memories.
6. The Couples’ Bucket List
You both obviously would have had created a bucket list with things you want to do as a couple. Make your anniversary an opportunity to tick something off your bucket list. Hold each other’s hand and jump off a plane or kiss under the Eiffel Tower - just do it, girls!
7. Walk Down The Aisle Together
A few years back, you walked down the aisle towards him. Years later, walk down the aisle together, as a couple. Show the world your bond and how you both are ONE.

8. Create A Cutesy Timeline
Display your love story and create a timeline with a video/ display of your photos together and share the special moments with everyone. From the day you met, to the day he proposed, to the wedding day and so on… Personalize it with photos and sweet messages from every phase in your life together.
9. Make Your Kids A Part Of The Celebration
In all probability, your kids were not there when you both got married. If you plan on having a white wedding-themed party for your anniversary, make your son/ daughter the flower boy or girl. You could also have matching outfits for you and your daughter, and/ or for your son and your husband.
10. “We Still Do”
Have a Wedding Part II ceremony and send out invites for the same. Have a photo booth with placards that read, “Renewed” and “Still His Mrs and Still Her Mr”. Celebrate and tell the world how madly in love you both are with each other, today and forever.
