For Southern Weddings V9, we asked a few of our wisest, most creative, and just plain fun friends how they celebrate their anniversaries. From simple takeout dinners served on wedding china, to trips back to honeymoon destinations, and everything in between, their ideas spanned every timeframe, budget, and tradition we can think of. Whether you’ll be celebrating your first anniversary or your fifteenth this year, we hope these ideas inspire you–we’ll be sharing a new one each Sunday!
For our paper anniversary, I hand-lettered a favorite verse that encourages love, service, and hospitality (we strive for each in our marriage) onto a huge scroll that hangs in our home. Alex showcased his creativity by purchasing a large pin board for our kitchen. While not made of paper, it houses meaningful paper in our lives: various invitations, our baby’s first ultrasound, and polaroids from our wedding.
