One Year Ideas??

I am having such a hard time coming up with something romantic and fun to do for our one year anniversary, help!!!

Re: One Year Ideas??

  • We cooked out on our deck together for our 1st anniversary. At first I was a little afraid that it would be lame, but we both were so relaxed and had a good time. We didn't have to worry about a crowds or making that was nice! It was a nice evening, so we just put on some music and ate and drank outside. 

    If you don't want to do that, what about having dinner where you had your rehearsal dinner or your first date? Or taking an overnight or weekend trip somewhere new but close by?

    The only bad part was getting the year old cake out of the freezer...agh. Good thing I made another dessert just in case. Fair warning! 

  • We had dinner at the Melting Pot (where we had dinner at the very start of our honeymoon) and spent the night in a hotel with a bottle of mead. The next day, we went to a science center because we're nerds. Some friends of ours just did their first anniversary at a zoo.

    Incidentally, our year-old wedding cake was surprisingly tasty.

    We decided to make the Melting Pot our anniversary tradition, so we've got reservations coming up next weekend since the actual day is midweek. 

  • Your first wedding anniversary is Paper. We are giving each other the deed to our first home. We close on it 2 days before our anniversary.

  • On the paper scheme, DH got me origami flowers.  I got DH a paper saying he could have a bj whenever.  
  • We are having dinner at the restaurant we held our rehearsal dinner (also the same restaurant we went to the night he proposed) and going out of town for the weekend on the motorcycle.  I am planning to make us a tiramisu (we both love it) because our cake has started to look a bit sketchy these past few months.
    Love my furbaby :) Birthday

    **6.30.12** I have found the one whom my soul loves.

  • My one year is next weekend, need to find a babysitter for the kid so my wife and I can have a date night.  She wants to go see a movie and dinner.  We might go to the movies first since I hate crowds.

    We have been together for 9 years before we got married, lived together for 5 of those years and our son was one when we got married.

  • Nice hotel room, some candles, Rose petals, a bottle of Champagne and some sexy lingerie.


    Have fun!!

    We're planning a weekend getaway to a little touristy town on a lake that's not too far from here. We've got a jacuzzi suite booked and we'll bring some wine and board games. Should be fun!

  • My husband and I will be going to Vegas for our first year anniversary. Can't wait! But you could so some romantic stuff locally, like a dinner cruise get a nice hotel room, do an activity that you have been wanting to do.
