Romantic, Memorable, and Affordable Wedding or Dating Anniversary Ideas For Couples. Fun makes time fly, especially when you are with the one you love, admire, care for. As the years go by, your anniversaries begin to sneak up, with you and your loved one always ending up going out to dinner again or at times you don’t do anything at all due to budgetary constraints. You aren’t able to think of anything big, celebratory because you aren’t aware of ideas that won’t cost you a fortune.
Ammm, luckily, you can be financially smart and enjoy celebrating your anniversary too! Here are 5 exciting new ways to celebrate your anniversary.
Wedding Anniversary Date Ideas for Couples
1. Your Wedding Night Menu – Recreated
Try recreating your meal with your spouse, choose recipes, go together shopping for the ingredients and be a team at cooking! Try an elegant tomato salad and chicken piccata – not something one would normally take the time to make at home! Making it with your spouse would certainly be lots of fun. For those of you who are really ambitious, try recreating the wedding cake. If you are unmarried and celebrating a date anniversary, try to cook what you ate on your first date!
Cooking, in general, is an extremely fun and cheap dating idea that you should always consider. If you’re still not sure what to do, find a new special recipe or use an online service to plan out your meal. End the evening snuggling on the couch, watching the first movie you saw together.
2. Have Your Own Personal Photo Shoot
Jot down your favorite places, gear up your camera, and have your own photo shoot! Go to places that hold special meaning to you both. Perhaps you could stop at the place you had your first kiss. Ask a passerby to take a couple shots of you. Keep an anniversary album for these special memories.
3. Make an Anniversary Mix music CD/USB
Make a music CD/USB of all the songs that have meaning in your relationship, and go out to relax and listen. Share the memories you associate with the songs. Another idea is for each person to make a CD to share with the other. Then, stay home and dance together!
4. Do Something New
Try something new, adventurous, go for a hot air balloon ride or something that thrills you and you both enjoy. Is there a romantic, cheap weekend getaway package that you and your spouse have always wanted to explore but have never gotten around to doing? Plan it and go and have fun!
5. Get Crafty
If you are feeling a little artsy, crafty, go decorate some pottery for each other, visit a DIY pottery studio. Or make something together, like a photo album or scrapbook of the previous year’s events!
