Follow these few tips for 25-year wedding anniversary party and you should be set to host a memorable party for everyone.
1. Guest List and Invitations
Start planning a 25th-anniversary party with a list of guests. Invite immediate family members and close friends for a small gathering or invite extended family, both old and new friends, and colleagues for a large celebration. Decide in advance whether or not to invite young children. Since the highlight of this party is to celebrate the couple, it is only natural to select party supplies that feature the guests of honour. A great idea is to make personalized invitations that feature “then and now” pictures of the couple. It is a great theme you can carry through to the rest of the party.
2. Decorations and Venue
Pick your local party venue based on your budget and the number of guests that will be in attendance. Venue options include a local hall, function room, restaurant, residence, or backyard party. Pick a place that goes with a specific theme or one without décor to act as a blank slate. Decorate the venue with spectacular 25th-anniversary party decorations. The traditional colour for a 25th wedding anniversary is silver, so you have the perfect theme to start with.
3. Keep It Relaxed and Stress-Free
If you have family members or friends who can help, y could ask them to bring a dish to pass and you would just provide the main dish such as BBQ or hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill. Get some poster board and put together pictures of your parents throughout their lives as well as wedding pictures and family pictures. Have music from 25 years ago playing in the background. A relaxed, casual time for people to enjoy together don’t have to cost a lot.
4. Capture The Moments
Get a few of the instant cameras and take pictures of groups and/or individuals. Then mount the photos on a decorated bulletin board or heavy poster board. The guests can write messages to the couple next to the posted picture. Great memories that are inexpensive!
Select a menu of their favorite foods but remember to make it simple if you are doing the cooking. Who wants to be in the kitchen during the festivities? Serve delicious food for your anniversary party guests. Start off with savoury appetizers. For celebrations at restaurants or function halls, select a few options and let the guests choose their meals. For a backyard event, hire a local caterer that does barbecue-style fare. If you have a bar you should decorate it to stand out. Add more balloon bouquets to the area but with champagne glass balloons mixed in. Don’t forget to serve drinks such as wine, mixed drinks, and non-alcoholic beverages. Serve coffee when it’s time to eat the anniversary cake.
