Your first wedding anniversary represents the completion of a year filled with shared experiences, stories, and growth in your journey of love. Commemorating this significant milestone thus requires an equally special celebration! Beyond extravagant trips overseas and fancy dinners, here are some unique ideas to celebrate your 1st wedding anniversary and honour the commitment you’ve made to each other.
1. Relive your Wedding Day
Reliving your wedding day doesn’t have to involve recreating the whole day from scratch. Instead, it’s about spending time together reminiscing about your vows, the ceremonies you went through, and all the tender moments that make your wedding day so memorable.
You might even share a chuckle about some of the things you argued over that seem so silly in retrospect, or have fun planning out your ‘dream’ wedding you could have if cost and practicality weren’t an issue. Or maybe you’ve experienced ups and downs in the last 365 days that make you look back on your wedding day and chuckle, wondering at how that besotted couple had no idea what was to come!
Enhance your reminiscing by exchanging pieces from the LVC Promise collection, a perfect anniversary gift idea that symbolises your continuous commitment to a life together. Consider the LVC Promise Signature Diamond Pendant – a stunning creation of 18K Rose or White Gold encrusted with 42 diamonds weighing 0.16 Carat in total. Inspired by a bolt and nut, the grooves running along this contemporary-styled pendant symbolise love, devotion, commitment, bond, and happiness.
2. Start a Charm Bracelet Tradition
Starting a charm bracelet tradition is a wonderful way to celebrate your first wedding anniversaries and beyond. Every year, add a charm that represents a memorable moment from the past year. Get creative with the charms and let your imagination soar – over time, it’ll result in a one-of-a-kind bracelet that only the two of you truly understand. The LVC Promise Diamond Bracelet Charmes is a fantastic starting point, with its versatile design allowing for numerous charms to be added on in time to come. The three 18K White and Rose Gold promise charms symbolise the past, present, and future – echoing the eternity of your wedding vows to each other.
3. Hold a Private Photo ShootMark this momentous occasion with a private photo shoot tailored to fit your unique likes, hobbies, and personalities. It’s a fun, intimate way to capture your growth as a couple during your first year of marriage, and you can even use it to start a photo wall that tracks how your family grows and changes over the years to come.
Recreate your favourite wedding shots, redo a photo you wish had gone better, or think up a theme that’s completely out of the box and just have fun! To add a subtle sparkle to your photos, consider diamond stud earrings like the LVC Promise Eternity Diamond Earrings. Crafted with precision in 18K Rose or White Gold, these earrings are lined with two full rows of side diamonds representing you and your other half. Perfect for both special occasions and everyday wear, they help you carry a promise of love everywhere you go. Pair them with the LVC Promise Full Diamond Necklace to add a touch of 18K White Gold glamour to your look.
4. Create a Time Capsule
Another engaging idea for your first wedding anniversary is to create a time capsule filled with mementoes from your first year of marriage. It could be as significant as something you wore during the wedding or as mundane as a receipt from the restaurant where you had your first meal together as a married couple. Open the capsule up in a year’s time – or embrace the beauty of delayed gratification and open it on your 5th or 10th anniversary for a truly special surprise!
5. Renew your Vows
It’s never too early to consider renewing your vows, and it doesn’t have to be a formal ceremony witnessed by family and friends either. Go to a location that holds special significance for both of you and recommit to each other in a meaningful way. Talk about what has happened in your first year of marriage, share your hopes and dreams for the future, and remember why you fell for each other in the first place. You could even exchange anniversary gifts, or go a step further and shop for a new wedding band set or design your own dream wedding band together.
