For many people, after the initial honeymoon period has word off it can be hard to keep the romance alive in your relationship and keep the spark. This can especially be true if you have children as the extra demand for attention can sometimes mean that you have less time to spend with your partner. If you both work full time or unsociable hours then this could be another reason that you don’t get to spend as much time with your partner as you may like to. It’s important to not let life take over and get in the way of you both spending quality time together. A wedding anniversary is a perfect way to rekindle your love for one another and dedicate time to spending it alone with each other. We have put together some unique wedding anniversary ideas to keep that spark alive!
Enjoy a date night and relive your wedding night
If you have been married for a few years and have older children that aren’t as reliant on you as much, then this is the perfect opportunity to organize an anniversary date night. If you’re stuck on what to do for your date night or perhaps your partner has been overworked lately and you’re looking for something nice to do for them, then why not surprise them with an overnight stay, or even just a romantic meal out. You could revisit your wedding venue and book a romantic meal and overnight stay. This would give you the perfect opportunity to celebrate your anniversary in style and reminisce about your wedding day.
If you can’t get out of the house or have a babysitter, don’t worry, after the children have gone to bed, why not cook a meal for your partner and you could even decorate the dining room with a romantic ambiance. If you don’t have too much time, it doesn’t need to be a three-course meal, the most important thing is that you are both spending time together.
Revisit your first date spot
Another really nice idea to do for your wedding anniversary is to revisit the place you both went on your first ever date. This is especially nice to do if you are celebrating a milestone anniversary, so you can visit where it first started and relive the memories together. If you’ve moved away from the area where you originally met, you could make a weekend out of it and book an overnight stay in the local area.
Organize a road-trip
This might be something for those more adventurous couples out there, but a really unique and fun idea is to book a road trip! To make it a little more fun why not pick a random place on a map, and book a road trip there for a weekend or even longer if you can both spare the time. You could even look at hiring a campervan to really make it a unique experience, and perhaps visit the local beaches on the way as well.
Take a class together
Your anniversary is the perfect time to do something new together and will allow you to spend some quality time together. You might want to do a cookery class and learn to cook each other a romantic meal, or if you both like fitness you might want to try something really unique such as a dance or fitness class. This might be something you could keep doing on a regular basis and allow you to spend quality time together on a regular basis.
There are loads of options for different classes that you could choose to do together if you fancy a fitness class you could try salsa, ballroom dancing, or even Zumba if you fancy something really different!
Go to watch some live music or a concert
This is one for music lovers, going to watch some live music or a concert together is a great way to spend your anniversary together and something quite unique and fun. You could surprise your partner with tickets to their favorite artist’s concert, and if you wanted to make it really memorable you could try to secure a meet and greet or get an autograph from them as a gift!
