25th Wedding Anniversary Celebration Ideas
Wedding anniversaries are a time for celebration, reminiscing, rekindling, romance and special time together. They are also a time when family and friends may want to organise a special gift or celebration. A 25th wedding anniversary is one of those special times! Chances are that couples may have older children at this stage of their married life who may want to mark this occasion. Here are a few party and gift ideas to help you!
25 years of marriage is also referred to as the silver wedding anniversary.
Inviting the bridal party to dress up for a mock wedding is great fun. Go the whole hog and create invitations and ask guests to dress in the fashion of the time. (It is possible that the bridal party may still have their outfits!) Conduct a mock ceremony but incorporate some humour and fun into it with people taking on the various roles. Take lots of photographs!
Another theme for a celebration could be of course,-the colour silver! Invite guests to dress in silver or wear silver accessories. Decorations could be silver and sparkly (silver stars, metallic balloons, tinsel, foil decorations) and the food could be served on silver platters. Let your creativity run wild!
Another idea is to hold a wedding breakfast. Invite friends and family. Making it formal dress sets the scene! The bridal table could be decorated with flowers and candelabras and delicious savoury and sweet finger food could be served.
There are many ideas for 25th wedding anniversary gifts. Here are just a few-
A silver photo frame with a special photo.
Silver wine goblets (they could be engraved)
A silver trinket box engraved
A piece of silver such as a candelabra
A special memento such as a poem
A personal notice in the newspaper
A photo collage of special memories
Celebrating this occasion in a way that is appropriate and relevant to the couple involved will make it a special lasting memory!
