My 2010 couples have started to celebrate their first wedding anniversaries which got me thinking about a friend of mine who’s been married for over 30 years and has a pretty sweet anniversary tradition. Each year she and her husband share a bottle of champagne, then they save the bottle and write a label describing where they were that day. They may have been on a picnic or on vacation somewhere, but they’ve got a collection of bottles with reminders of where they were each year. I think it’s romantic.
This post is for all of my couples because the commitment you made–you know that one…in front of all your friends and family…right before that HUGE party!–that commitment requires some tender loving care, maintenance, hard work and good old-fashioned L-O-V-E.
So create your own wedding anniversary tradition this year and celebrate the milestones in your marriage. Maybe you’ll read through your guest book and share some chocolate cupcakes!
If you have a tradition to share I’d love to hear about it! Leave a comment below.
