Ten Ways to Add Spark to Your Relationship on Your Wedding Anniversary

Nov 14, 2022

Thinking back to when you first said “I do” is sure to bring on a rush of sweet memories.

So should your wedding anniversary should be viewed as just another day on the calendar?

Absolutely not!

Remembering your wedding day may seem like a trivial detail from an outsider’s perspective, but it’s something that will have a huge impact on the way you view your union for the rest of your life. The same goes for every other milestone in your relationship.

To ensure that your second, third, or even silver wedding anniversary is like your first, consider these ten ways to add spark to your celebration and keep things fresh, fun, and exciting with your partner long after the honeymoon phase has worn off.


1. Picnic in the park

A picnic is a perfect date for couples who want to enjoy the outdoors but are short on time. If you have kids, this is a great way to introduce them to the fun of being one with nature without having to worry about ticks and the other hazards that come with spending time in the woods.

If you don’t have kids and don’t feel like you can spend the afternoon outdoors in your neighbourhood, there are a few options for keeping the picnic vibe indoors.

If you’re going to be in your home, try to avoid the couch. Instead, move your furniture around to make floor space where you can spread out things like an inflatable bed or warm blankets. You could also set up a projector for movies, eat barbecue, or use a starlight night lamp for a romantic starry vibe.


2. Stay at a bed and breakfast

When the two of you were newlyweds, booking a stay at a bed and breakfast might not have been your first choice, but now that you’ve been married for a while, it’s the perfect way to mix things up.

You’re not just celebrating an anniversary with your spouse; you’re celebrating the foundation of your marriage. While a luxury hotel will always have a special place in your relationship, a bed and breakfast allows you to reconnect with the feeling of the beginning of your journey.

Try booking a B&B near serene mountain scenery or a sea view where you can have privacy while enjoying the picturesque scenery. Or you can opt for rooms near ski resorts, hiking trails, or hot springs so you’ll have some adventure options up your sleeve.

At this point, you can treat yourselves to the finer things in life without having to worry about the cost. Plus, you’re creating memories that will last a lifetime.


3. Go back to your wedding venue

Remember how much fun you had at your reception? Well, now you get to relive it, only this time, you’ll be able to focus on each other rather than on all the event details.

Whether you go for brunch, a cocktail, or dinner, you can even go back to the same restaurant where you had your reception. Memories of your first hours as spouses are made even sweeter if you book the same room, order the same food, and drink the same wine.

And as you savour the moment, talk about the thoughts you had on your wedding day. They could be about your favourite part of the ceremony, the guests’ wardrobes, or even the couple’s dance. You’ll never run out of things to talk about and relish together.


4. Book a site at a campground

If you’re a couple who likes to get out into the wilderness, booking a site at a campground is the perfect way to connect with each other.

You’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors without the stress of having to plan out every detail of your trip and enjoy the comforts of home in your tent. At the same time, you can relax as much as you want. Just be sure that you still get in some quality time with your spouse.

You can book sites near great scenery or out-of-the-ordinary locations like hot springs, waterfalls, or even nature reserves. Here you can savour your time together while enjoying the views.

Make your camping experience nature-friendly too by bringing eco-friendly products and reusable food and drink containers.


5. Go on a mini-road trip

Want to get out of town for a few days? A mini-road trip is the perfect way to do it.

On this trip, you can book an RV or use a spacious car. Prepare basic necessities, warm bedding, and your hobby essentials like bikes, fishing poles, guitar, camera, etc. This is your time to share your hobbies with each other and try them out together.

You can make an unlimited number of stops and see beautiful sights without having to worry about exhausting yourself. Plus, you do not have to worry about booking hotels or finding restaurants along the way if you have your food and lodging with you.

The idea of booking a long road trip with your spouse sounds fun, but it also comes with a lot of pressure.

You want to be sure that the trip goes according to plan and that you don’t get into any arguments along the way. To fill in the silence, try jamming to your favourite songs or listening to romantic podcasts as you hit the road.


6. Hit the open water

If you live near a lake, river, or ocean, you can enjoy the beauty and serenity of the open water. Whether you’re on a paddle board, in a canoe, or on a fishing boat, being out on the water is a great way to connect with each other.

You can book a resort in a tropical paradise and enjoy the amenities and services together. Maybe there is a scuba diving service or a yacht for rent that you can use.

Oops! Don’t forget the champagne! A day on the sea with a beautiful sunset, bubbly on hand, and your spouse by your side is a scene straight from the movies is something you’ll never get tired of looking back on.


7. Go on a fishing trip

Don’t want the open water? Then try a fishing trip on a lake or river. Even if you don’t reel in a fish, you’ll enjoy the time you spend with your spouse.

You can rent a boat and ride together. As you paddle away, you can talk about your childhood, your likes and dislikes and what your relationship means to you. If you want to make this experience even more enjoyable, you can even hire a guide to show you the ropes and tour you around the area.

Of course, you don’t want a nasty sunburn, do you? Well you can be a little flirty by rubbing some lotion on your spouse here and there. Just be careful not to fall in the water!


8. Take a Class Together

There are several ways that you can celebrate your wedding anniversary by taking a class locally or abroad.

You can take a cooking class, a painting class, or even a dance class. No matter which class you take, you can learn new things about each other as well as build a new skill that you can use in the future.

There are numerous classes that you can search online. Just make sure that you are registering with legit and licensed trainers.

Taking a class together is a great way to reconnect with your spouse. You can discuss your hopes and dreams while you work on a project together.


9. See a drive-in movie

When you were dating and you had a date night, you probably picked a movie you wanted to see and then went to the cinema to watch it. Now it’s time to relive that moment.

Take the time to pick out the perfect movie from a drive-in theatre. Check that it has a special meaning to your relationship, and that it’s something that you both want to watch.

Make the night special by cuddling up with your spouse while you watch the movie. Also, don’t forget to bring some snacks and drinks that you both love.


10. Host an anniversary party

Celebrate your anniversary by hosting a party. You can make the party themed around your wedding date or you can pick a date that’s special to both of you.

If you’re having a themed party, be sure that you take the time to pick out the perfect decorations. You can invite your friends and family over and have them reminisce about your big day.

You can also use this as an opportunity to express gratitude toward your loved ones for all that they did to make your wedding day special. This will not only show them how much you appreciate their support, but it will also help you to reconnect with old friends who may have fallen out of touch over the years.
