One of the most important occasions that a married couple may experience is the golden wedding anniversary of their 50th year together. After facing the world together as a team, going through good times and bad, and just staying together for so many years, the occasion is a monumental moment for any couple.
Many 50th wedding anniversary celebrations are set up by the married couple or a family member. In these circumstances, the engagement can be completed with little to no help from professionals.
In some cases, the children of the couple or grandkids may set up the occasion by renting out a facility, banquet hall, or other venues to surprise the parents.
Making a Parents 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary Special
After 50 years of marriage, the couple has been through many ups and downs and a 50th wedding celebration is a great opportunity to make the party highlight the relationship.
This article will go over a number of different ways to help ensure a vibrant and fun 50th golden wedding anniversary celebration for the married couple and all who attend.
Also, finding anniversary gifts for parents doesn’t have to be difficult. Buying a photo book with pictures filled up of them from when they first started dating until now, would be one great suggestion!
Food and Drink
When setting up a wedding anniversary, the guests of honor may request a specific food or wine they would like to have. There might be a request for Highlands Forty One wine which will be an amazing wine to serve the guests.
Engage with the guests of honor and find out what kind of food and drink they would like to have served. A big cake with a picture of the loving couple is a great way to bring fun and memories to the dessert.
Invitations That Are Special
A great invitation that has the looks and feel of an important event is a great launching point for a 50th wedding anniversary party. Presenting a creative and engaging invitation for the family members, close friends, and even the couple themselves, will help symbolize the importance of the event.
By using photos that they know and love, the invitation can be made personal for this special occasion. In today’s world, a digital invitation can be used or the traditional paper mailed invitation is also an option. Be sure to invite important friends and members of the family, including grandchildren, to the party.
Choose a Theme for the Party
The color gold has become a symbol for the 50th wedding anniversary, and, hence, the term Golden Anniversary. Creating a theme based around the color gold is a great way to theme a 50th wedding anniversary.
Wrapping gifts with gold paper wrapping, using golden table cloths, drapes, balloons, and other items set the tone around the venue. Place wedding photos of the loving couple, as well as photos showing them growing old together, around the venue to help create a lovingly warm ambiance.
Surprise Wedding Vows
Surprise the couple with a chance to renew their wedding vows all over again. Send the couple down memory lane by gifting them garlands or rings to complete the ceremony. Most couples will experience feelings of joy during the ceremony and the ceremony will never be forgotten.
Choosing the Venue
It can be difficult to decide on the perfect venue for the wedding anniversary party. Depending on the couple’s overall taste, there are a number of different options.
A restaurant, recreational building, local park, banquet hall, or even throwing the event at a house are viable options. Depending on the number of guests that will attend, the wedding venue will need to have proper facilities and room for guests. If the event is not a surprise for the married couple, ask the couple where they might like to hold the event.
Create a Photo Slideshow or Video
A video or photo slideshow is a great way to head down memory lane. The married couple and guests can enjoy viewing photos of the couple and beyond.
Photos trigger emotions of happiness and love and also laughter, so use photos that are engaging for all. Using older black-and-white photos with newer colored photos can help set the timeline the couple has experienced together. A voice-over can be used during the course of a slideshow.
