A 10th wedding anniversary is a milestone to be celebrated. Theme parties of any topic can be used such as a costume party, a casino night or a pig roast. Traditionally 10 years is marked by paper, but there are more fun things to use to celebrate.
For invitations, make copies of the bridal pictures and include it when mailing. See who has changed the most in the wedding party or who has moved the farthest away. Some people don’t change much in ten years, but others you can’t even recognize. Invitations can be wedding bell shaped, in hearts or any picture to match your chosen theme.
A party supply store will have balloons, streamers, confetti and wall hangings to match any and every theme. If you are having dinner or serving snacks, plates, cups, napkins and tablecloths can also be found to coordinate. Blow up a giant picture of the bride and groom, either from when they were dating or when they were children and hang on the walls. Have the guests use it as a guestbook to sign their best wishes or to relive their favorite wedding memory.
Game playing may be limited if you are having a formal dinner. If it is a fun theme party event, play memory games like who can remember the exact vows and recite them. Have a competition as to who can write the most memories down in five minutes – such as what color the dresses were, who was the DJ, who caught the bouquet and so on.
For entertainment, have the same DJ provide dinner and or dancing music. Get the wedding movie onto a DVD and show it from a laptop screen.
Set up a picture taking area and get each guest with the anniversary couple. Send it with a card after the party to thank them for their gift or to express your gratefulness that they shared in your day. Takes lots of pictures and make a scrapbook. Save it all to use for the 25th anniversary party!
