This week on the podcast, we’re talking about wedding anniversaries. What do we do with them? How do we make the most of them? There’s always some pressure when it comes to our anniversary regarding how much to spend, expectations, etc.

What do you do for your anniversary?

  • Afton: Every anniversary we go on a trip and that is the gift. Then we write each other a card but sometimes I forget the card.
  • CJ: We do the same thing, but I try not to forget the card. We take a trip every October.
  • Ted: I try to do a fun little gift for every anniversary or a short trip. But let me tell you about our worst anniversary. I was working with a church doing marriage retreats and planned one for April 22nd, which is our anniversary. It didn’t hit me until I was about to walk on stage and I told her, “I forgot our anniversary” and she replied, “I did, too.”. So I got that one pass but it still makes me twitch. 

Tips For a Great Anniversary

1. Don’t forget it

Put it on your calendar and set a reminder for a few weeks before.

2. Plan ahead

Don’t wait until the last minute to plan a trip or buy a gift.

3. Agree on expectations

For some couples an anniversary means a trip and for some it means pizza. They’re both great as long as you agree on expectations ahead of time.

4. Get lucky

Intimacy means different things at different stages, but it’s a time to connect romantically.

5. Reminisce about your wedding

Take some time to think back on your wedding day and other memories. Pull out your wedding album or re-watch your wedding video.

6. Start a tradition

Are there little fun things you’re always going to do? Watch the same movie, go back to where you got married, put your best memory from the year in a box.

Your one simple thing this week

Choose one tradition or one surprise and get ahead of it for your anniversary.
