I’m a sucker for throwing parties… I dream up any excuse to have one. 🙂
I’m curious what you’d think if you were invited to a 1-year anniversary party. What I’m envisioning is a simple afternoon of cocktails and wedding cake and just a time to celebrate with friends.
I’d need to get Darling Husband on board with this idea… he may balk at it ; but I think it would be fun!

I would go but would think the couple throwing it was a bit self absorbed. Maybe just throw a party for no reason or wait until it is someone’s birthday? I think anniversaries are more for the couple.

Honestly, I would think it was a gift grab. I would be more apt to enjoy an anniversary dinner party at a couple’s home with a few other people just for fun than an actual party, until you get to the big numbers like 25th anniversary!

If you asked for gifts that would be weird.
But if all your invitations said “no gifts please” then why not?! I don’t see anything weird/wrong about celebrating your anniversary with friends.

I would do it more like an evite of who wants to come over and celebrate with us. No gifts and you supply the food and alcohol.

15, 20, 25+ year party? For sure; 1 year…NO. We celebrated your marriage with your wedding. Making it a year and throwing a party strikes it a bit odd in my book. No one I’ve known has ever done this so and don’t think they would.

yeah if you invite ppl please have NO gifts on that invite! It’s nice to get together and reminisce and celebrate, but that’s it…………………

What’s funny about this is that my best friend/bridesmaid told me our wedding was so much fun that she thinks we should throw annual anniversary parties with everyone there. I think she was kidding, but if your wedding was fun and you keep things low-key, I don’t see any reason why not. I would really drive home the “no gifts” thing, or even mention people can bring alcohol (so they know it’s relaxed and won’t try to bring anything else).
