About 69th Wedding Anniversaries
A 69th wedding anniversary is surely an anniversary to be treasured with the 7th decade of marriage looming. Whether you’re thinking of a massive celebration involving the entire neighbourhood or an intimate gathering of close friends, a few tips can help you plan an anniversary party worthy of the couple’s deep commitment to each other. You may be planning for next year’s 70th anniversary and want to keep this one simple, but all upcoming wedding anniversaries should be celebrated.
Find out as much as you can about the couple’s younger days. Use the information to develop a song play list that features their favourites from the years when they were newlyweds. Enclose a note in the invitations asking each guest to write down a favourite memory of the couple. Gather the stories and either read them out loud at the party or use them to create a scrapbook which can be given to the couple as a memento.
It’s pretty safe to assume a couple that has been married for nearly seven decades has everything they need, which can make gift giving a bit of a challenge. Grandchildren or great grandchildren could introduce their grandparents to new technology and buy a gift of a computer or tablet and teach them on how to search the web, email and Skype to keep in touch. For an economical and thoughtful gift, consider making a memory tree. Find a large branch or small fake tree and fill the branches with photos commemorating the main events in the couple’s lives.
Add a few gift cards for favourite stores, gift certificates to the restaurants they prefer, or tickets to shows or events they might enjoy. Have a Happy 69th wedding anniversary and enjoy your special day.
