When planning a 25th Wedding Anniversary, there are some important considerations to take into consideration: The Guest List: Before you begin to plan a wedding anniversary, begin by determining the guest list you have chosen. If you have chosen a friend or family member to be the wedding celebrant, then your guest list will probably consist of those members of the guest list. You will need to provide them with the invitations and any necessary other party supplies. If you have chosen to have a church wedding, then the list of invited guests would most likely be a select few close family and friends.
Invitations: It is necessary to send out wedding anniversary invitations as early as possible so that guests know when the event will occur. The date and time can be listed on the wedding invitation, or the couple could indicate that the party will take place on the day prior to or after the anniversary date.
Invitations to the party may also be included in the wedding registry as well. Guests should be prepared to receive an assortment of invitations in the mail. You should make sure you know the names and addresses of the people on the invite list.
Party Supplies: There is no need to purchase all of the materials needed for your wedding anniversary parties. A simple tablecloth and napkins, and a pair of glasses or champagne glasses can be purchased at any local store. You could even save a little money by making these items yourself if you wish. If you do have extra money, you could purchase some decorative items that would match the color scheme of the celebration and add a personal touch.
Food and Drinks: Planning wedding anniversaries can be a stressful time in any marriage. Make sure that you are shopping for a menu wisely so that it matches the theme of the party. You should also be aware of all the laws that govern where you can serve alcohol at your party, as these can vary from state to state.
One thing that many couples do not bother about when they are planning their wedding anniversary celebration is decorating for the occasion. A lot of couples spend a lot of money on flowers, but do not bother to purchase anything else that might be used. Flowers can make your celebration seem very expensive if you don't take the time to plan your party carefully. You could also purchase a flower arrangement and include it in the wedding registry so that guests are reminded of the occasion on their next anniversary.
