After all, everything is for our beloved parents, and it has to be special. From gifts to the menu and venue, we try to make everything to be the best, and why not our parents have done the same for us.
Planning for the anniversary takes time and effort. But if done smartly, then you can be as quick as possible. So if your parent’s wedding anniversary is approaching in the near months, then this article will be a great help for you.
We have some tips, tricks and planning ideas which will help you in planning your parents’ anniversary, whether it’s their 25th or 50th. So let’s dive into the article.
Make a guest list-
The foremost step is to make a guest list so that you can decide the budget, venue, food and the rest of the things. You can ask your parents about the guest they want to invite. I would recommend that you be mindful while choosing the guest. In pandemic times, inviting lots of people unnecessarily will not be worth it. So invite only close relatives and friends.
Setting up a designated budget is the ultimate and first step of planning. It has to be done carefully, and a buffer amount should also be kept for extra expenses.
After setting up the budget, the second step is to decide the venue according to the number of guests. If you have less number of guests, then the hotel lawn will be a great option if you are planning to plan outside. Otherwise, you can choose to set up everything at your home as well. Whatever venue you choose, make sure it is safe and can accommodate your guests comfortably without making the place congested.
Food is always the centre of attraction at all the events and parties. So choose the food items carefully keeping a few essential factors in mind such as season, versatility, taste and hygiene.
Rather than keeping a lot of options in food, I would recommend that you keep 2 for each but ensure that it is versatile and delicious. Focus on the quality of food rather than quantity.
Decorations are also as important as other things for the anniversary party. So keep a separate budget for it. Decorations can be done in two ways: either you can decorate on your own, or you can ask event planners to do the same for you. It depends on your budget. Decorations can be based on the theme you have decided or general decorations if you have decided on that. Keep the decoration subtle as per the ideologies of your parents.
Cake is another attraction of the party. So choose the cake carefully and also set the budget for the cake separately. There are varieties of cake available these days in the market. There are special cakes for every occasion. Customised cakes are also trending these days apart from the traditional cakes. Online stores are also offering cake online cake delivery these days. So it’s quite convenient. Photo cakes are really adorable and can be the best choice for your parents’ anniversary. You can get their wedding picture printed on the cake to make the cake look ravishing.
Let’s admit, birthdays, anniversaries or any other event is incomplete without gifts. It’s your parents’ anniversary and getting gifts for them should be first on your list apart from all the preparations. There are a variety of options available in gifts these days at stores and on online shopping websites. You can order gifts online as well.
