If you have been married for over 20 years, you know how important it is to celebrate a happy 20th anniversary. What you don't realize though, is that there are a few things that you need to do on your anniversary, so that it goes off without a hitch.
The first thing that you need to plan for your anniversary party is who will host it. This can be one of the easiest decisions that you will make during your anniversary celebration.
You want to make sure that you get all of the details and decorations for your special anniversary party in place before you have to throw it. This way, when you are ready to throw the party you won't have any trouble planning it.
Next you will want to send out a formal invitation so that everyone who wants to attend has a chance to do so. Since this is your first anniversary, it is a good idea to make it more intimate by adding a few romantic words to the invitation. You can also add some pictures on the envelope that will show what it was like to spend time together as a couple.
When you are inviting people to your party, the most important part is to make sure that you invite your husband as well. While he may be the one who decided to give up his career to stay home with the kids, he is also the one that is responsible for looking after the children.
And while he may not be able to attend the party, you still need to send out an important part of the invitation, and that is the text message of the date and time of your party. Your husband is probably going to miss the party because he will be taking the kids to school, but sending him a text to let him know when the party will start will make it more special for him. It will also make it easier for him to go if he chooses to attend.
Before the party, you should also make sure that all the invitations are sent out at least a week in advance. If you have the date set for a night out on the town, but no one is planning one yet, then the invitations should be sent out early enough that your friends and relatives won't forget about you and your party. And you shouldn't forget to send out invitations if you want to invite all of your female friends.
The party will also be a lot more special if you prepare it according to the schedule of your special anniversary. If you are celebrating your second anniversary, you should plan on having the party two days before and after your first anniversary.
Finally, when you are planning for your party, make sure that you make a list of all of your guests so that you can avoid getting them confused and making a mess. It's a good idea to have a guest book just for this purpose.
