    We haven’t had our first anniversary yet, but that will be a day just for the two of us. And we’re typically people that like to celebrate everything with everyone, but no, anniversary is just for us.

    tiki429:  It’ll hopefully just be us! We’ll be making it romantic alone time. Maybe have a party for like 10/25/50 years

    Our anniversary has always just been for us.  I can see doing something bigger for milestone anniversaries, but generally, no, nobody else is included.

    Just my husband and I. I don’t see the point in involving other people. Maybe if we ding 20 years or something.

    <br />This year I’ll be celebrating alone since husband will be away at training.

    Our dating anniversaries have always been just us. We haven’t had our first wedding anniversary yet, but we have discussed going back to the ranch we got married at with our family and friends. We can still also celebrate by ourselves.

    We have been married for 6 years and we always celebrate our anniversary just the 2 of us. For a couple of the anniversarys we have gone away for a few days but usually we just dress up and go to a nice restaurant. It has always just been the 2 of us celebrating and I like it better that way. For Birthdays though, we usually include family in our plans.

    Just the person I married! I think a wedding anniversary should be about the couple celebrating their marriage. A big party for milestone anniversaries is widely accepted but these are really supposed to be thrown for the couple, rather than the couple throwing one for themselves. That’s a bit like ‘come celebrate us with us’. 

    Of course that’s just how me and my husband see it. Plenty of people see weddings as being a celebration for the whole village so they might see anniversaries in a similar way.

    tiki429:  DH and I said we want to have a party for our 10th but that’s way in the future.  I think everyone’s different and it’s up to you.

    tiki429:  I plan on our anniversaries being just us. Except MAYBE the big ones like 25+ and that’s only if someone throws it for us. I think anniversaries are more private and would like it to be just the two of us to celebrate.

    tiki429:  Just the two of us although we will include our children in the future. I would only have a party for a big anniversary like 25th or 50.

    tiki429:  Growing up, we celebrated our parent’s anniversaries and our grandparent’s anniversaries. Nothing huge, but we’d have a family dinner, the kids would give them little gifts. For example, my parents celebrated their 34th anniversary this year, so FI and I made them reservations at a new restaurant on the beach and paid for it and my brother and his girlfriend bought them movie tickets. 

    My parents always give me and my FI a little something on our anniversaries, same with my siblings. I send my sister an anniversary card, etc. I don’t know. My family likes to celebrate things. Any excuse to get together, have some wine, and eat some cake we are so totally down. 

    I don’t know if I’d throw this huge party…maybe for twenty-five and again for fifty? We did that for both parents and grandparent’s, so who knows.

    It’s our first wedding anniversary today and we’re celebrating just us 2. I find it kind of strange when people have big celebrations for their own anniversary (except for milestone anniversaries, but those should be thrown for the couple, not by the couple).
