    @TakeTwo: Sorry you had a not so great as you planned wedding day. Last year for our first anniversary we went away, this year I expect it will be dinner.

    @TakeTwo:  FI and I aren’t married yet, but we’re planning on HOPEFULLY doing small trips each year for our anniversaries. we love to travel. if we can’t work it out logistically, we’ll definitely do gifts and dinner.

    We typically will just do dinner, but I think for the bigger anniversaries we are likely to take a trip, although the time of year that we got married does coincide with when we usually go on a winter vacation, so I am sure we will still do that sometimes, but not specifically for our anniversary, just because that’s what we do!

    We went away for our first anniversary. I’d like to do the same this year but it’s a bit more challenging as we’ll have a five month-old. I know it’s unrealistic to go away every year when you have kids so going forward I see us just doing dinner except for significant anniversaries (five, ten, twenty years).


    I’m sorry your wedding experience was disappointing and I hope your vow renewal is everything you hope for.

    We (boyfriend and I) usually just go out to an expensive dinner, because our anniversary is very close to Christmas. I want to start taking weekend trips though. 🙂

    I didn’t vote, as we are not married, and we celebrate our (dating) anniversary with all three ways.

    I actually cannot remember where we went for our first anniversary, (somewhere in central North Island, New Zealand I think…) for the weekend, went out for dinner the night of our anniversary and exchanged gifts – he gave me a pearl necklace and earrings; I cannot remember what I gave him….

    For our second anniversary we spent 5 days in Brisbane, Australia, went out for dinner, MJ gave me a bottle of Champagne and a Pandora bracelet with 4 charms to represent the places we visited together in Europe the previous Christmas/New Year’s Eve; I gave him 6 photo books I made, one from every country we’ve visited together.

    This year, for our third anniversary, we’re spending 8 days in the Whitsundays, Australia and I’m planning on giving MJ a GoPro camera – he ski’s, surfs etc. – and we’ll have a romantic meal the night of our actual anniversary.

    I think our plan is to go on holiday every anniversary – whether it’s over the weekend, or a full 5+ day vacation – for every dating anniversary and I’d say once we’re married we’ll celebrate our wedding anniversary the same way and our dating anniversary will become a quiet evening where have dinner (in or out) and maybe exchange small, sentimental gifts.
