DH and I haven’t even been married 2 months, but I am wondering how we will celebrate anniversaries. We never celebrated dating anniversaries, so this will be new for us! I imagine we’ll go out to a nice dinner and maybe the theater (see a play, ballet, concert, etc), and buy each other something nice.
What do you do to celebrate? Or how do you plan to celebrate when your anniversary rolls around?

FH and I never really celebrated our anniversaries, but we always have a really nice dinner at home. I don’t think it *has* to be a big to-do, really. As long as you’re together and thinking about eachother and the love you share, that’s really the biggest part.

We never celebrated dating anniversaries either, but we’ve talked about how we’ll celebrate married anniversaries. It will probably usually be a nice dinner out with a small gift exchange. On big annversaries, we want to take a vacation someplace we couldn’t afford for our honeymoon.

We do gifts and trips. The trips aren’t every anniversary, as we celebrate out engagement and wedding anniversary, but we make one of the two work a year. And gifts we shop for together – I want hubby to have something he will keep or a long time, and vice versa, so we go that route instead of surprises

We’ll probably try to have a big vacation every year but my guess is that our big vacation will happen the first week of June instead of the last to avoid holiday/peak season hotel prices. On our actual anniversary I’m sure we’ll either try to go away for the weekend or if it falls in the middle of the week we’ll just go out to eat and see a movie. No matter what I’m sure we’ll buy each other a small gift… we tried to get married at a time where we would have a little more money for things like that. Away from the holidays and birthdays lol.

dating anniversaries we used to do dinner out at a nice place, but now we are only going to celebrate those when they’re big milestones. and now we’ve had 2 married anniversaries. so far we’ve done gifts and trips and dinner out–lol, it sounds like a lot, i guess it really is! our anniversary is in august though, so it coincides with our summer vacation plans. the first anniversary, we went to London for a week, which was quite a big trip. this year, we did a weekend away at a dog-friendly b&b (we brought our dog) about an hour and a half away from where we live. much smaller but still a nice way to get away and focus on us. on both years, the trips weren’t exactly on our anniversary so we went to dinner on the actual night.

I have only been married for 18 months. For our 1 year anniversary we stayed at a nice hotel in downtown ottawa for a couple of nights had some nice dinners, went to the war museum (we are both extremely interest in the history especially since his 2 grandfathers fought in WWI), and had a sunset cruise on the ottaw River.
For the next few years we are just going to do a dinner thing with maybe a small gift and then go bigger for all the anniversaries that are a multiple of 5. On those one we will do things like weekend getaways and vacations.

We celebrated our dating anniversaries for the most part by going out to dinner and/or a movie or some other place like the Zoo. We decided that we will go on a trip every year for our anniversary to some place that we’ve never been before since neither of us has done a lot of traveling and both wanted to before we met. We did a road trip to Salem, MA for our 1 year anniversary and it was perfect!! Another tradition we are setting is to buy a bottle of wine on each of our trips and save it to enjoy on our next anniversary.

We started celebrating dating anniversaries around 2 years, but it always just a nice dinner and night together. Now that we’re married, we’re going to celebrate our 10th dating anniversay (bc I think it’s a big milestone – this month!). After that, we’ll just do wedding anniversaries – probably small things, but hopefully a real trip now and then!

We have been going to the same restaurant for our anniversary every year, and will continue that for our wedding anniversary (same date). We also give each other a gift, either bought or made. I will make him a gift this year since we are taking an anniversary trip. Not sure if we will take a trip every year, but we do have trips planned for years…1,5,10, etc.

Hubby and I just celebrated our 1 year Anniversary. We took the day off and spent the day in DC going to the Mueseums and then we went out to dinner with my Best Friend and her Boyfriend. We also went out to a bar with friends and watched the Redskins game.

Our first wedding anniversary is in two weeks. We’re going out to dinner at the same restaurant where we had our wedding dinner, then for a horse-drawn carriage ride. We did that on our wedding day as well.
We still celebrate our dating anniversary too. Our first date was at Margaritaville Las Vegas. We live in Florida, so we try to get to the closest one, which is in Orlando. If we can’t, we get Margaritaville frozen seafood to eat at home and watch Jimmy Buffett concert DVDs on the big screen.
