If you are wondering what we mean by Traditional, Modern, Gemstone or associated flowers then check out our etiquette section on our main site.

Its your choice

How you choose to celebrate may set the precedence to many happy years together, if your partner decides not to celebrate your anniversary how you like now is probably the best time to discuss what your feelings are.

Intimate Celebrations

The first anniversary, as is typical for all the early anniversaries, is normally celebrated by the couple in an intimate manner, it is the later anniversaries where lavish parties are thrown; having said that if you are a party animal there is nothing stopping you having a party, get your mates round and watch the wedding video together over a pizza and a few beers.

If you do decide to throw a celebration then it would be down to the couple to arrange the function, this does not mean you have to do it personally merely that the burden is not traditionally placed on any other family member. For more etiquette answers check out our FAQs in the etiquette section. If you want more suggestions on appropriate gifts to get then select one of the hyperlinks above we've separated our suggestions into exotic; when you really want to push the boat out and celebrate. Sensual; for some loving and intimate ideas and finally our Thoughtful section; some of our suggestions in this section take time and devotion to make perfect however these are often the best, after all don't they always say it's the thought that counts!
