Time seems to pass by in a flash when you’re busy getting on with your life. You can remember planning for your wedding day, walking up the aisle to your partner, and finally becoming a married couple. Then the rest of life comes along! Children, house moves, pets, jobs, holidays… And before you know it, you’re getting ready to celebrate your silver anniversary!
Organising Your Silver Anniversary Celebration
Twenty-five years of marriage deserves a celebration with loved ones who have been there along the way to support you. This is why many people choose to have a party to mark the occasion. The first step is to get those 25th silver wedding anniversary invitations sent out.
Planning a party shouldn’t be stressful – if done right, it can be an exciting build-up to an important milestone in your life. The secret is to begin the preparations early, particularly if you are planning on a lavish day. Begin by making a scrapbook of ideas that you’d like to include.
Make contact with caterers (if you are having them) and organise the venue as early as possible so that you have time to discuss your ideas with them. Once these larger tasks are out of the way, make sure you pay attention to the smaller issues, such as arranging a guestbook and photography. Remember to send your silver anniversary invitations early, especially if some of your guests have to travel a long way.
Finally, decorate your venue to emphasise your silver anniversary. You can use items like personalised wine bottle labels and place cards to add a personal touch to the party! You don’t have to stick to the silver theme, of course. If silver sparkles aren’t your style, find stationery more suited to you. You can still highlight your anniversary – our Shabby Chic Flowers design has a vintage theme, but the tag ties back into your anniversary by showing how many years you’re celebrating.
