I would like to go back to our reception site, which is also a really good restaruant, and have a nice romantic meal.  No gifts, I hate gifts.  He always spends more than he should.  I just like a little romance!

I was in the same situation you are…. I HAD to take a business truip (required for a promotion) the weekend of our 1st anniversary, which was also Father’s Day 2007.  Basically, I woke up Sunday morning, called Darling Husband, got on a plane, flew 6hours, got to the airport, ran to give my dad his gift then we went to dinner and came home.  It wasn’t what I imagined, but just spending time with my husband made it worth it.

my husband had originally scheduled his written preliminary exam for his PhD the weekend of our 1st wedding anniversary…i was ok with it and planning to delay our anniversary plans for a more convenient time.  but he realized i was bummed about it – it’s the only time you’ll ever have your 1 year anniversary – so he rescheduled his exam for the next semester.  luckily, it didn’t mess with his PhD schedule much.

i made most of the plans…he usually makes the plans but needed a break ;).  we ended up driving a few hours away to spend a long weekend at a bed and breakfast, and we biked some really good trails.  it was nice to stay local.  i think we got each other gifts but i don’t even remember what they were…it was more the time spent that was nice.

We just got married in March, and I am already thinking of things we can do for our first anniversary. I consider a wedding anniversary a big deal. You don’t have to break the bank, but it is a very special date that deserves recognition, not just any other old day. We have decided, that no matter what, every anniversary we would make every attempt to go somewhere, be it local or a really nice trip. We don’t have the opportunity to travel as we’d like, so at least once a year we’re jettin’ out, just us – no friends, family and no kids. That’s special enough for me.

If it’s special to you, then don’t just say "forget it." Maybe your husband will see how you feel, and meet you halfway. Is it possible that he has something special planned and just doesnt want to let on?

Is it odd I’m thinking, “Since I planned the wedding mostly, my guy can take care of the 1st anniversary?”


Also, how are you guys doing seven years in?

Check out this idea.  The first year anniv is paper.  My Dreamlines can sketch your gown and his suit.  I am much more setimental than my husband, but he did step up and he got me this on our wedding day.  My sister in law received this for their one year, which is where my husband stole the idea from. 🙂  http://www.weddingbee.com/wedding-vendor/dreamlines-llc?tab=vendor-portfolio
