So, you made it past the so called seven year itch and now you are looking forward to your ten year anniversary. This marks a great moment in the lives of you and your spouse. Taking a moment to reflect on all that you both have accomplished and now you are ready to celebrate the one decade mark.
The ten year anniversary is a great milestone and can be cherished by doing many things. I have put a list of wonderful ideas that you will find very interesting and will probably use some of them if not all of them to create a wonderful ten year anniversary.
If you have children, you should defiantly book a baby sitter well in advance for this special occasion so that you and your spouse will be able to spend a romantic evening together by yourself. If you feel guilty about leaving the kids, try to think of it as a small night vacation that you both deserve.
Early in the day you should both plan to have a professional portrait done of you wearing your wedding gear. If you no longer have your wedding dress or suit, don’t worry too much about it but try to get in to take a photo to capture your ten year anniversary. Most glamour shot places will offer a package that will customize to your ten year anniversary and may even offer certain discounts.
A ten year anniversary should not just be about the romance of it but also about the happiness that you have brought to your family. Here is an idea that I took from my mother in law when she celebrated her fiftieth wedding anniversary; a gathering of family and friends is always a nice way to show how much you two still cherish one another. There are special cakes and decorations that you can purchase for your ten year anniversary and this is a nice way to celebrate it with music and a speech.
Exchanging your wedding vows once again in front of everyone is also a nice way to celebrate your ten year anniversary. If you have children, you can include them in this ceremony and they will also cherish it for years after the anniversary.
After the celebration party or ceremony, you should plan to have a romantic dinner with one another. There are a ton of places that will help you plan this event and give you even more ideas on ways to make it more romantic. Take advantage of any deals and discounts that they may offer. A candle light dinner is a great way to be romantic while you cherish the moment.
If you never had a honeymoon or would like to take a vacation, your tenth anniversary is the perfect time to do this. A well deserved trip to the islands or to a resort is a great way to show the true meaning of love. If you are not able to take a vacation at this time, plan a romantic night out on a canoe by candle light or rent a hotel with a spa or Jacuzzi in it. This will allow you to still get away without ever really leaving the area.
There are a lot of ways to plan a tenth year anniversary and your imagination should run wild on this day. If you are celebrating your tenth anniversary, congratulations and before you know it, you will soon be celebrating the golden years with the love of your life.
