Anyone can plan a wedding. That’s the easy part.
Not everyone can count a string of wedding anniversaries. That’s the real test.
Celebrate every anniversary.
Every anniversary is an achievement deserving of being acknowledged. Admittedly, some are traditionally more symbolic than others; but, they are all important milestones, a time to appreciate the struggles and the successes that make families stronger and life more fulfilling.
Milestone wedding anniversaries
Do you know people who are celebrating their 40th, 50th or even 60th anniversary? Or how about number 27 or 42? Are you? Are your parents?
Tell the truth. What’s your first reaction?
Mine is always “Wow”. Not because I think they did something impossible. I just think it is highly commendable. So, for me, that’s a wowzer!
Some people think of anniversaries as being very personal romantic events that should be shared by the couple. That may be true, but there is nothing wrong or weird about celebrating with the whole family and or the people who have been there with you through the years.
Our Suggestion … Give memories not tchotchkes
You could get together with your siblings and buy a gift for your parents; but, why not give memories instead? With age, more and more people think of downsizing. They have less desire for souvenirs such as commemorative plates and the like. Flowers fade. Gifts collect dust, but the gift of time and experiences will live on in the memories of all.
As life gets busier and busier, there is less interaction with each other. Spending quality time together becomes a rare and priceless commodity.
Travel provides new experiences and creates memories to last a lifetime. It’s an especially great gift for people who don’t want or need anything!
You could send your parents on a trip to celebrate their anniversary; but, how about kicking things up a notch and giving them something really special .… Arrange a vacation away with the whole family!
Combine a wedding anniversary with a family vacation in a beautiful location. What could be a more memorable anniversary celebration idea for parents? This is a sure-fire win-win for all. – Sherry
Which parent wouldn’t appreciate spending time together with the whole family?
Having the family together … grandparents, parents, siblings, kids, grandkids … will create memories that you and your parents will treasure for years to come. Imagine how happy they will be having the whole family together … bringing back memories of family gatherings long past.
You could stay local and have a staycation, but that invariably means work for someone at either their own house or planning the event somewhere else. Nix that idea, especially for a major anniversary. Plus if you stay local, that’s only a vacation for the out-of-towners.
Since you are going to celebrate such a special occasion, why not do so in an equally beautiful location?
