Set up a small table on the cabin’s front porch or in another area outdoors where moonlight can be seen. Prepare a meal for your loved one and invite them outdoors to sit down at the table once it is ready.

Serve the meal and pour a beverage for each of you to drink. Toast your mate before beginning to eat. You and your partner will be able enjoy each other’s company while appreciating the peaceful surroundings.

Cozy Toast By A Fire

If the cabin has a fireplace inside of it, place fire logs in the base of it and light it right before you are ready to relax with your spouse. Arrange a few blankets and pillows on the floor, directly in front of the fireplace so that you both can lay side by side while gazing at the flames. Cherish the moments spent relaxing and speak candidly to your loved one about how much you love them and some of the reasons why. Allow them to open up to you, as well, about their feelings.

Nature Hike While Spending Time Together

Explore the woods that surround the cabin on one of the days that you are away on vacation. Bring along a compass so that you and your partner do not become lost. Also take a camera along for the excursion so that you both can take photographs of the scenery and a picnic basket that has lunch items inside of it so that you can enjoy a simple meal together.

Find a clearing in the woods that you and your loved one can sit down in to eat. Your partner may appreciate the simplicity of the meal and the fact that you are both far away from distractions.

All of these ideas can help make your wedding anniversary special and memorable for you and your spouse. If you both have a great time, make reservations at the same cabin each year to celebrate your marriage.

Tips To Help You Celebrate Your Wedding Anniversary While On A Cruise Ship

Posted by on May 12, 2016 in Blog, Travel |

If you and your spouse were married on a cruise ship’s deck and will be taking a cruise this summer to celebrate your wedding anniversary, use the following tips to help make the trip meaningful and enjoyable. The time that is spent together may strengthen your relationship and will provide you both with fond memories that you can both look back upon for the rest of your lives.   

Reenact The Original Proposal

Envision the night of the marriage proposal and try to add details that are reminiscent of the occasion so that your spouse will feel as if they stepped back in time. Dress in similar clothing that was initially worn and pack candles or musical selections if they were used during the real proposal. Try to remember what words were said during the original occasion and practice saying them in front of a mirror until you are comfortable repeating them out loud.

Set up an area on the cruise ship’s deck that is private to share with your spouse. Recite the proposal speech to your loved one and focus on their reaction. Afterward, toast your spouse with a meaningful statement that describes how much you love them and your undying devotion

Plan The Perfect Meal

Speak with the ship’s chef or head waiter and request that special dishes are prepared for an intimate dinner with your loved one. If you would like to eat in the dining room on the ship, find out if there is a private table that you can reserve. If the ship provides live entertainment, you may be able to coordinate the dinner so that you and your spouse can listen to a vocalist or instrumentalist during the meal.

If you would rather share time alone, set up a table inside of your room and cover it with a fancy tablecloth and a vase of fresh flowers or another beautiful centerpiece. Take your time while enjoying the meal and savor each food item that is served to you and your mate. 

Participate In Workshops And Activities

Many cruise ships offer workshops and activities for guests to enjoy. Indulge in dance lessons, culinary demonstrations, or exercise classes if they are available. Utilize the swimming area, play shuffleboard, and take photographs of the scenery surrounding the ship. Filling your daily schedule while spending time with your partner will make the cruise more meaningful and may help you both feel valued. 

If you and your spouse enjoy yourselves while on the cruise, plan a trip each year to celebrate your wedding anniversary.
