Choose a Suitable Date

choose, date, day, plan, wedding, anniversary, party, parents, event, celebration, occasion
 

First and foremost the day that you are going to fix for the party is very important.

Ideally, anyone would celebrate it on the date of the anniversary, which totally makes sense but if the date falls into a weekday, it won’t do much good.

You need to decide or organize this event on a weekend so that all the friends and family members that you are going to invite will be able to attend.

Also, considering that you’ll be working on a weekday, a weekend would be much more suitable.

According to facts, most of the events and gatherings are hosted on a Saturday. 

So if you’re looking for a hassle-free booking or just want to cut down your costs for booking a venue, you could probably host your party on a Sunday.

Try for a Destination Event

plan, destination, travel, wedding, anniversary, party, parents, event, celebration, occasion, family, friends
 

As your parents might probably be celebrating their 15 or 25 years of being married.

This is rather a cunning tactic you can use when you want to reduce or deter the number of casual friends and relatives attending the party. 

Be sure to give your guests prior notice if you’re planning to host it on a special day or place.

Also, if you’re planning on a destination party, give them notice of at least one or two months, so that they can make the necessary preparations, check and apply for a holiday and make the required travel booking.

This is how you reduce the number of people attending the party as only the close ones will take an effort to make it that far and spend time.

Create a Unique and Different Theme

As it's a very special day for your parents so be as creative as possible!

Deciding on a theme opens up more ideas and gives a creative and memorable touch to the party.

Look for what your parents are most interested in, be it going to a beach or spending time camping with wildfire or even the winter celebrations, and set a theme accordingly.

Even if you’re gonna dress differently let your guests know about the dress code so they can get the required outfits because of course no one wants to feel left out or self-conscious about their appearance at a party.

Send out Custom Invitations

Creating invitations is one of the best and most fun parts of organizing this party.

You can start making the invitations once you have decided the date, location, and theme of the party.

Keep the invitation limited and only invite the ones close to you, because that is how you can make the party even more special.

Play around with the invitation’s colors, designs, and photos until you can decide or find a perfect fit using all these.

For the invitations, you can keep it simple although a suggestion would be that be as creative as you can get, or perhaps you can choose a memory/ photo from the wedding day.

Make a Special Songs Playlist

A good song playlist is sure to keep everyone entertained during the party and also is very important to keep the vibe going.

But these songs also need to reflect the bond and the relationship your parents have.

It isn’t necessary that because this is an anniversary party you only need to have romantic songs.

You could also have a list of famous artists, and songs which your parents like and are a fan of.

Another thing you could do is collect songs from the wedding day, or a song with which your dad serenaded your mother or a song from the first concert that they went to together.

Pick their Favorite Menu

food, cuisine, snacks, dishes, cake, restaurant, plan, wedding, anniversary, party, parents, event, celebration, occasion
 

As the menu is always restricted in marriage to be the ideal menu and what everyone wants, you can create an amazing and unique menu for everyone to enjoy.

If your parents love food from a local restaurant, there you go! You have the menu ready already.

Another thing you could do is order dishes from the list of your parent’s favorite cuisines.

You could also make a list of all the places your parents have visited in the country or internationally and curate a list of all the famous delicacies from these places.

Get a Good Photographer

As this opportunity comes once in a lifetime it is very important to document each and every moment of this day.

Having photos of this day might help your parents and everyone else remember this day profoundly so having a great picture is very important.

The best way is to hire a professional photographer to get the best candid shots and photographs as they know their skill best and spend the whole day without interrupting the party.

This is why we recommend you hire a photographer friend or probably a friend of a friend because this will keep the guests at ease as they might already know the person and everyone would be comfortable being themselves in the photos.

Make a Video, Slideshow, or Collage

slideshow, video, collage, photos, memories, plan, wedding, anniversary, party, parents, event, celebration, occasion
 

Creating a collage/ slideshow or a video is like giving your guests and parents a flashback at the entire span of their relationship and the life that they shared together.

You personally making a collage along with your spouse or siblings will make it even more special.

You could also let them know about how you feel towards them or what you feel about a specific moment or photo by writing captions along with the collage.

You could also collect all the memorable photos from the wedding and other occasions and make a slideshow for everyone to watch, although for this you would have to decide on a specific time in the day where everyone can gather and watch it together.

Create a Memory Book/ Journal for Friends

memory, journal, friends, family, relatives, plan, wedding, anniversary, party, parents, event, celebration, occasion
 

The guests would definitely want to write some words of appreciation and love for your parents and for this, it is best to keep a journal at a special place in the house where they can let them know how they feel.

Collecting these comments and words of love from your relatives and close ones will definitely help make this an emotional event, as these small things are sweet and make a huge impact.

After the event, your parents can go through the journal together and keep this as a memory even if there isn’t going to be an anniversary celebration for a few more years.

Plan Interactive and Fun Games

What good is a party without any games?

Having games and activities planned for your parents and guests can help keep the party lively and fun.

There are a bunch of amazing and fun games to hold during a party.

Keep in mind that with these games you include not only your parents but all the guests as the saying goes “the more the merrier”.

Have some upbeat music prepared to play in the background and also prepare some prizes for the winners of the games.
The prize could be anything but be sure to include a couple of funny prizes which would make for good photos.

Do the Party Decorations your Style

Making the party personal and memorable is the end goal, so doing everything yourself will let you remember this experience and this day.

Decorating the house, making custom napkins and other stuff would make a huge impact as these gestures and what will let your parents know how much you mean to them.

By making personalized decorations you can treasure these moments by taking a lot of pictures of the guests admiring your work and creative art.

Recreate Memorable Wedding day Pictures and Moments

Hitting the nostalgic nerve will make everyone cry for sure.

But recreating all the romantic, funny and memorable wedding day moments is a very good idea and a must-do.

Rejoice at the first dance they had as a couple, recreate their first kiss on their wedding day, take a photo with all the bridesmaids and the groomsmen.

If you want to make it even more special you can also order from the same caterers and order the cake they had at their wedding, from the exact same bakery that they got their wedding cake from.

This is sure to leave everyone in awe and emotional as this will make the party even more special and memorable than it already is.

Be Sure to Send Thank You Cards After

Once the party is successfully done and over, your work isn’t!

Collect all the cards and gifts that your guests had brought and sit with your parents to unbox and open everything.

Sending thank you cards to everyone who attended the party is also a must and a very good thing to do.

Ask your parents to write about all the guests individually and thank them for attending the event and making it a success and a good memory.
