    You got to have your big romantic trip, and now there’s a trip that your parents will pay for? I’d go! You can celebrate alone for a bit on the day of. I just think it’s hard to pass up a free vacation, especially when you were able to really celebrate on your own already. But obviously what your Darling Husband wants is important, too. 🙂

    I’d go and celebrate alone.

    @Annie624:  Do you know how you would celebrate if you stay home?

    You could always have a romantic date on the actual date of your anniversary at the beach. I say go for it!

    I’d try to convince him to go!! FREE??? You can’t beat that!!!

    Or if the anniversary date is Sunday could you all return that day? And do something SOLO?

    @Annie624:  First of all…ahhhh Coldplay! They’re my favorite — unfortunately they’re not going to be close enough to us to go to a concert.

    Second — I personally would prefer a low-key day at the beach with my husband than a low-key day at home. Especially if you’re going to a concert and already had a big trip just the two of you!

    I would totally go to the beach.

    We didn’t even celebrate our first anniversary… it’s one day out of an entire marriage!  You guys already celebrated, have fun with your family!

    Woah! I think he’s making this about his in laws. Does he not get along with your parents? I would never pass up a trip. Your anniversary is one day and you already celebrated!

    I would 100% go!  Just spend your actual anniversary on your own, or just have a special dinner that night!

    I can understand how your Darling Husband feels.  Despite making sure that your free beach weekend is about the two of you, I can see why he’d rather just spend the time with you alone.  I’d rather not have to spend our first anniversary with his parents, or my parents, and would choose to have a low key weekend at home, personally.

    I especially wouldn’t leave him behind just so you can have a free beach weekend.  If the roles were reversed and my SO did that to me, I’d feel hurt.

    It’s a little hard to get into a romantic mood when your family is around.  Even if you guys went to dinner for some time alone, you’d still have to go back to the house where everyone else is.  And assuming you guys are going to have sex on your anniversary, why would you want to be in the same house with everybody?

    I think it would be fine to go if the anniversary wasn’t a milestone one, which the first most certainly is.

    I’d go!  You already did your romantic 1st anniversary trip.  Have fun on a free trip to the beach and do something special without the parents on the actual anniversary day.

    ETA: Darling Husband was on a bachelor party the day of our first anniversary.  Celebrating it on the exact day isn’t really super important, IMO.
