    We did this too, now that we’ve been together over a year and are engaged we don’t anymore. I think we’ll just stick to yearly.

    We do once a year becuase we take date nights sometimes, and I think it would take away from the anniversary aspect of it if we did it every month. That one day out of the year is our excuse to ignore the rest of the world and just be together. I think I would get burnt out on every month things becuase, really, they aren’t that special to make a big deal out of.

    We don’t really do anything extra fancy but we just kind of recognize that we’ve been married for a certain amount of months. That will still once we hit one year.

    @Kandiss16:  I have never understood the concept of celebrating your relationship once a month in all honesty, and hate people calling it an anniversary: no, it isn’t.

    We celebrate our anniversary each year; that’s it. However, we have date nights one-twice a week; I can see why a couple who doesn’t do that might use it as an excuse to do something, but personally, I’d rather do something nice as a couple ‘just because’, and not feel we need an ‘excuse’ to celebrate.

    Recently we went on a mini-break in London; by coincidence it marked 1 year until the wedding, but that wasn’t the purpose; the purpose was a fun, romantic weekend away as a couple, enjoying time together.

    More power to couples who do monthly celebrations. // We never did it.  It seems to trivialize true anniversaries and milestones.

    @Kandiss16:  “AND PLEASE stop calling it a 1 month “anniversary”… (anni)versay means year it makes no sence to call something that happens once a month an anniversary.. “


    THANK YOU SO MUCH. This has been driving me CRAZY. Anniversary comes from the latin ‘annos’ meaning year. Calling a monthly date an anniversary is redundant. The latin for month is ‘mense’, so if you must call it something call it your mensery or something like that.






    And no, I don’t celebrate monthly – we try to do nice things occasionally, but couldn’t afford (or be bothered!) to make a big deal every month! We also only really celebrate our dating anniversary, on a rough date that is around about the right time (5th November), so we have an excuse to go see fireworks displays!

    We did for the first year, then we did the 1.5/2.5 thing for a bit. Now it’s just yearly

    We celebrated our 6 month-aversary, but I think going forward we’re just going to celebrate once a month.

    On our first year together, we were in a LDR and I would send him a card every month.


    Now, we still celebrate our monthsary but only in a small way: since I’m a stay at home wife and I do all the cooking (okay, we eat out like half the time), DH offered to cook dinner for me every monthsary!

    We acknowledge each month-aversary, but don’t “celebrate.” Our first month, we did celebrate with a fancy homecooked dinner.

    I picked ”every single month” just because on our first year, every month we went to eat at the same restaurant, the one we went to on our first date. But now, it has become expensive so we stopped after the 13th month haha !

    We acknowledge each momth but its pretty much just a text that says “Happy 14 months!” we only actually celebrated our 1 year.
