Romantic First Anniversary Celebration Ideas


Your first anniversary is just around the corner and you want to surprise your spouse. So, why not do something creative, interesting and out of the box? Here are some amazing 1st anniversary celebration ideas, which will make your day even more memorable and special.

Plan a romantic getaway

If your anniversary falls on a weekend, you can plan a romantic getaway to a nearby hill station or maybe a beach. Spend time exploring a new place and trying out something new. Have a romantic candlelight dinner at a secluded place and spend the night underneath the stars (remember Hrithik and Katrina in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara). And, if the anniversary falls on a weekday, book a hotel room to stay away from everyone. Switch off your cell phones for a day, stay away from all your office work, and just spend the entire day enjoying each other’s company. Order sumptuous food and indulge in some delicious desserts. You can even ask the manager to decorate the room the way it was on your first night, and indulge in a passionate lovemaking session. You must focus on making it romantic, after all, it is your first anniversary!

Take a trip down memory lane

Before getting married, there would have been some places, which you used to visit frequently. It could be a coffee house (where you first met), a chaat wala (where you both discovered each other’s food interests) or a restaurant (where he proposed you) or maybe a cute bench in the secluded garden. Just revisit those places and rekindle those wonderful memories again.

Throw a surprise party

Pretend that you do not remember your anniversary, and are suffering from a bout of partial amnesia. Your partner will definitely be baffled by this. If they try to drop some hints to remind you about the anniversary, just act nonchalant. On the other hand, secretly get their friends and family together and plan a bash. And then enjoy their overwhelming expression when they see the surprise you have planned. They will definitely make you feel on cloud nine after the party is over (you know what we mean here, right?).

Renew your vows

Ever dreamt of running away from your house and getting married in a small temple in a true Bollywood style? Then do this on your 1st anniversary. Do not inform your friends and family, and run away (for a day) to a nearby town or village and renew your wedding vows. Get married in a temple (the way we see in Bollywood flicks). Hire a dholwala, dance with them and experience a sweet and simple wedding, sans the pomp and show. It will definitely be an enthralling experience for both of you.

Do some social work

Start your second year of marriage on a good note. Do something good. Take some kids from an orphanage out for a joy ride. Take them to a water park and have fun. End the day by cutting a cake with them. You will definitely feel good after celebrating this special day with them.

What would you do on your first anniversary? Let us know in the comments section below.
