Wedding Anniversary Party Details

There are many different things you can do to make the event special for the couple. Choosing the music that they prefer at least at the start of the dancing.

Get guests to write a message or a memory in a special guestbook, this is best arranged beforehand, and then present it to the couple during the speeches.
If feasible collect phtographs from the couples past and either create a scrapbook for people to read through, or decorate the room with a timeline with all the important events in the couple’s time together. (Don’t forget to trim it with gold.)

Make the menu special, perhaps there is something associated with an important time in their lives, or something that they both particularly like.

Do have an anniversary wedding cake, if it can be made the same as their wedding cake that would be wonderful.

Remember the colour for this jubilee (silver or gold) and use it artfully wherever possible.

So for the 50th wedding anniversary: white china with gold trim; white napkins with gold ties; gold candles; all invitations and place cards written in gold ink on white card; gold place mats (or doilies); gold trimmed tablecloths and so on. Silver works well with red or black for contrast.
