We make a point of going to the bakery where we got our wedding cupcakes from and picking a few up to eat for dessert on our anniversary.

I would kill to be able to wear my Rehearsal Dinner dress because I loved it, but there is the whole issue of it not wanting to zip anymore LOL!

We will be married in October but our current Valentine’s day tradition is to kind of go back to our first few weeks of dating mixed in with the place where he proposed. We go to lunch to our favorite chinese food place where we shared our first kiss, then hit a movie at the theater where we had a our first few movie dates. We then get a hotel room and go to dinner at the restaurant he proposed at. It’s always a good time 🙂

blushblossom91:  One challenge is that most of us don’t live in the same house all our life anymore. I would pick a public place like a park, somewhere the background would stay relatively the same.

We have two traditions:

(1) We exchange gifts that are related (at least partially) to the traditional anniversary gifts. (So, first anniv – paper; second anniv – cotton; and so forth.) It’s a fun challenge so far.

(2) We take a photo with the number of the anniversary – we’ve drawn in on posterboard, held up a wooden number, etc.
