Talks from the heart… How to celebrate your wedding anniversary


Last Sunday, my husband and I celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary. To give you some inspiration on how to celebrate your (wedding) anniversary otherwise than go out to diner, you can find some tips in today’s blogpost!

It’s a cliché I know, but time really has flown by. Believe me… 23 years… gone before you know it!

But we never ever leave our wedding anniversary go by unnoticed.  So these last 23 years we have always celebrated our special day without skipping once! And you know what, it doesn’t always have to cost an arm and a leg… there are so many ways on how to celebrate your love for eachother…

‘A succesful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person’

Mignon McLaughlin

Watch your wedding video or look in your wedding album

No doubt you have some memorabilia from your wedding day… you might have a tape that’s gathering dust somewhere… and what about that wedding album?! You’ve probably paid much for it, so why not get it out and flip through it… it surely will bring out some memories!


Have a romantic candlelight diner at home

Why don’t you take out your porcelain plates and your crystal glassware and have a romantic diner?! Put on some soft jazz and enjoy a candlelight diner at home… Don’t know what to make for diner? Perhaps you still have your wedding menu card… why not make your wedding menu all over again! Bon appétit 😛

Get that pen out…

… and write your wedding vows again… or a love letter… Let your pen tell your partner how your heart feels!

“A happy marriage is about three things: remembering the good times, forgiving the bad times and promising to never give up on each other.”

Surabhi Surendra

Make eachother a surprise gift

Let your creativity run wild and make your partner a surprise gift! A drawing, a mixed tape (or a spotify playlist if you want to bring it to 2017!), a photo collage about some beautiful memories,… you know your partner… just think how you could make him/her happy!


Dance to the tunes of that song you danced to x years ago

Remember that first dance on your wedding reception? Why don’t you put it on the minute your partner walks in… no matter what time… it’s always time to slow dance 🙂

“A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity.      The order varies for any given year.”

Paul Sweeney

Relive a date from x years ago

Perhaps you and your partner have fond memories of one particular date… why don’t you just relive that date all over again? Bring out those romantic vibes from so many years ago…

This was our first selfie… waaaaaaay back in 1991!!! For your eyes only 😉

Plan a weekend break or holiday

Perhaps you cannot take the day off on your special day, but you can spend the evening planning a weekend break or holiday… there’s nothing which brings more joy than planning a trip for just the two of you!

Have breakfast in bed

Why not do a bit of an effort and make a fabulous breakfast to have in bed? Some juice, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs with toast and a croissant with jam… and while you’re at it, why don’t you just open a bottle of bubbles to celebrate your special day?! Enjoy!

Do you have more tips on how to celebrate your anniversary? Let me know in the comments… it might give us an idea for next year 🙂

Love, Kathleen

    1. Thanks, we still love it ourselves 🙂 We just came back from a holiday and we had 1 picture left on the camera so we tried it out… we had to wait several days of course to find out whether we were actually on the picture 😀 Have a lovely evening!! x Kathleen
