Wedding Anniversary Gifts By Year; Modern

Back in the early 19th century, someone, somewhere thought of this grand idea to break down what someone should buy for their significant other for their wedding anniversary gifts per year, for example (for the first year of marriage you should buy something made of paper, or for the 5th year of marriage you should buy something made of wood, etc.) You can read more about the origin of this idea of gift giving here.

Well, times have surely changed…

To be honest, in this day and age women don’t want a blender, trinket, or another household item for their wedding anniversary gift.

They want to be gifted with an EXPERIENCE or a memorable ADVENTURE.

And with everything being open again, we have the freedom to experience life to the fullest!

We have collaborated and combined a few ideas of what we believe will make for some unbelievable experiences, for your wedding anniversaries for years to come–or at least from year 1-year 10.

 

1. Revisit the place where you first met


This is the perfect wedding anniversary gift and is sure to take your partner’s breath away–bringing them right back to where it all started.

The moment you first laid eyes on each other, even if it wasn’t instant fireworks, this can be such a romantic moment as you continue to celebrate your love story or your 1st year of marriage.

What would make it even more special is a glass of champagne, or apple cider if you aren’t big into drinking and rereading your vows, or sharing a special moment from the heart, about how lucky you are to be with someone just like them.

2. SURPRISE! Surprise your partner with taking them someplace they have always wanted to visit.


We got some feedback when we collaborated on making this list from a woman who said her husband made her dreams come true when he took her to a place she had always wanted to visit since she was a young girl.

Her wish was to visit Southport and Wilmington, North Carolina. She had a big connection to North Carolina because her favorite movie was filmed there, A Walk To Remember. She shared that she fell in love with everything about the area and had to see it for herself.

Well, if you know anything about that film, you’d know that in the movie the main character, Jamie, had a list of things she wanted to accomplish before she died, and her beau in the movie, Landon, was doing everything in his power to make all of her dreams come true.

So, it was very fitting.

Your significant other might not have a story quite like this, but you get the idea. 

The second year of marriage is all about courtship.

To sum up, even if your relationship isn’t in that honeymoon phase anymore–it’s still possible to create the magic that was once there.


3. Say Cheers to you and your love in Napa Valley, Wine Country.



Your third year of marriage is a time to remember your why. Why you chose one another, and how you can continue to grow even deeper in love. We recommend going somewhere fairy-tale-like. We couldn’t think of anything more magical than spending quality time together in Wine Country.

Here you will be able to enjoy endless, incredible, high quality, wine tasting or take in the beautiful sights during an intimate light stroll.

On the other hand if you are feeling a little more adventurous take a hike on some gorgeous trails that are open to bikers, hikers, and equestrians. You will also be in close proximity to numerous hot spring resorts, and nearby lakes. Or you can even jump on a wine train!! How fun does that sound?

This picturesque getaway has something for everyone!

 

 4. Charming Sunset Picnic for Two–Yes Please!



 Delight your love with a wonderful endearing gift that comes with food! Yum! Snacks are always welcome no matter who your partner is ( they can be healthy snacks too, of course).

 Here’s what you will need to create the most intimate evening picnic:

A few nice blankets
An old style picnic basket
Charcuterie board: you can do a traditional style with deli meats, cheeses, crackers, grapes, strawberries, chocolates, or whatever you two love most
A bottle of your favorite, wine or champagne (or apple cider for any non-drinkers)
Some fresh cut wild flowers
For evening picnics a few flameless candles are always a nice touch
A small Bluetooth speaker to set the mood, or just in case you feel like slow dancing
Bring an activity like cards, board game, art supplies, something you two will enjoy doing together

 This truly is an activity that you can customize to your needs and wants. 


  5. Revisit the place you were first married, and be sure to stop by your reception venue for dinner.
wedding-anniversary-gifts-chapel-of-the-flowers

It’s time to reminisce on one of the best days of your life.

As you two celebrate 5 years of being by each other’s side, and 5 years of good times and challenges along the way, the best advice we can share is to take time to slow down and pause.

It’s important to just allow yourselves some time to reflect on how far you’ve come, and what you both want in the coming years.

Statistics say married couples begin to hit a bit of rut, or can get “stuck” anywhere from years 5-7. And what that means is that it can often feel like you are questioning your partner, and if your values, beliefs, and desires are really aligned like they once were.

As a result, revisiting where your marriage first started always helps to reconnect to your WHY as a couple.

Why you knew you couldn’t live without each other, and wanted to spend the rest of your life making them happy.

We love the idea of being able to recreate your wedding day, but we know that’s not always possible.

Definitely visit where you were married, or as close to it as you can (at least the same city).

If you cannot have the exact meal you had, then just have Italian food if you had Italian or Mexican food if you had Mexican, etc.

Bring something with you like a cute brand new notebook to take notes about what you want to create as a couple–(try not to bring a laptop or IPAD to take notes, just because anything digital can quickly become a distraction).

Here’s to you and your love story, and your vision for how you will continue to grow even deeper in love.

6. Plan an EPIC adventure date

wedding-anniversary-gifts-modern-day

Who doesn’t love a good adventure?

As a result, an adventure date of this magnitude will take your love to the NEXT LEVEL without fail!

Some of our favorite ideas for your potential adventure date are:

Hot air balloon ride
Parasailing
Ziplining
Helicopter Ride
Boat ride
Paddle boarding
Surfing
Skiing
Snowboarding
Skydiving
Hiking
Camping


If you feel like none of these speak to you, that’s okay too.

Even something like dance classes, just make sure it’s something that pushes you to go out of your comfort zone, 

This is an activity that can really bring you closer if you are both open to it.

7) Let’s go on a…ROAD TRIP!!

wedding-anniversary-gifts-modern
What a great way to see the sights while you get to learn more about each other, and see what your partner loves most–whether it be the amazing food or the breathtaking sunsets, you will be sure to see your love light up!

In addition, to spice up this road trip planning process,  you can play a game.

Here’s how to play…

Grab a map and flip a coin to decide where you will end up each day. Where will fate take you in this 7th year of marriage?

It can actually be quite magical!

As a result, you are getting to spend SO MUCH quality time together.

Moreover, you are getting the time to discover what the best parts of your relationship are, and what each of you bring to the table, and how it allows for you to work so well together.

Get packing!!

8) Can you keep a secret? It’s time to go on an exclusive getaway!!!

wedding-anniversary-gifts

For your 8th wedding anniversary we recommend you two rent something like a private cabin, deep in the woods.

To clarify, the idea is to GET AWAY from everyday life, work, housework, kids activities, whatever it is.

Even if it’s just a staycation at a local hotel, create a little oasis for just the two of you.

Where you don’t have the worries and cares of it ALL!

We highly recommend unplugging from the digital world, this trip is about you the two of you relaxing!!!

Usually we are so busy with the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, that we don’t allow ourselves time to slow down.

This is that time.

If you’re looking for permission or a sign, HERE IT IS!!!

Reset, recharge, come home from this little getaway feeling ready to take on whatever year 8 has to offer you and your love story.

9) We are headed to…the TROPICS!!

wedding anniversary gifts

Pack your sunscreen, sunglasses, bathing suit, your best sundress, or cozy beach wear, and that’s pretty much all you will need!!

This trip is all about getting your best tan, room service, and staying in bed together from sun up to sun down.

You get to make this whatever you want it to be.

However, whether you choose to be adventurous and plan romantic excursions like horseback riding on the beach, or choose to be absolute beach bums, this will be a once in a lifetime experience.

You are just about to hit a huge milestone–your 10th year wedding anniversary is now in sight.

This is a BIG deal.

Which is why we believe you two should treat yourselves to a honeymoon do over, or perhaps your first real honeymoon.

10) It’s here the moment you’ve been waiting for!!!

wedding anniversary gift ideas

You did it!!

You have reached what some know to be your “tin” or tenth wedding anniversary.

The traditional 10 year wedding anniversary gift is usually something made of tin.

We just don’t feel that really aligns with what a 10 year wedding anniversary signifies in today’s day and age.

10 years is MUCH MUCH bigger than something made of tin.

In short, our suggestion would be to do a Vow Renewal in Las Vegas with a fresh new diamond ring.

wedding anniversary gifts by year

Something that expresses what you two have accomplished and been through over the years.

Most importantly, this vow renewal will be the time that you and your special someone come together, and do it YOUR way.

It’s common for couples to make sacrifices on their wedding day to appease and satisfy the wants of others.

There are always so many thoughts, opinions, concerns, etc. when planning a wedding, but with this intimate elopement if you will, this vow renewal, will be something that you and your love get to call all the shots on.

The best part about this wedding anniversary gift, and having your ceremony in Las Vegas, is that you and your partner will have endless opportunities to either lounge by the pool, experience the most exquisite fine dining, catch a breathtaking show, or to do something a little more outrageous and zipline over the city.

But wait, there is something you must do before you leave the beautiful city of Las Vegas.  Make sure to get a photo of you both in front of our Married in Las Vegas Sign.

This will be a photo that you cherish for many years to come.

Renew Your Vows: How and Why to do it

Why do couples renew their vows?
Isn’t it enough to be married once? The truth is right now, it could be said that renewing your vows is actually more IMPORTANT than simply getting married.

las-vegas-vow-renewal-chapel-of-the-flowers
Why?

Because, the truth is ANYONE can get married.

But, not everyone will make that marriage last for years and years…

Have you ever noticed an older couple that seems to be just as much in love as they probably were when they fell in love all those years ago? How sweet they look when they dance, laugh, and they can’t seem to keep their hands off of each other.

Up Pixar Up GIF - Up Pixar Up Love You - Discover & Share GIFs

Everyone seems to watch these older couples who just seem to REALLY get it, in complete awe.

How do they do it?

What’s their secret?

We did some digging, and found this article that shared some Love Tips that have helped some long time couples keep their marriage together for some, as much as 40 years+.


How to stay aligned in your marriage

No matter how much time passes, and how you both change, remember to continue to grow together. To stay committed to each other during all of the changes that happen over time. 

You and your partner need to grow individually but also together. It’s not 2 entities becoming 1, its 2 entities becoming 3. “There is you, there is me, and there is us”

Along with staying committed to each other and your love story through all of the ups and downs, the absolute perfect way to make sure you and your partner stay aligned is to renew your vows.


Renew Your Vows and Re-write Your Wedding Vows From Years Ago

The vows you shared 5 years ago, or 10, or even 20 years ago, might not resonate quite the same way as they once did. When you renew your vows it’s best to ask the following questions:

What can you as a couple recommit to together?

How will you ensure that your love story lasts the test of time?

What do you want your legacy to be as a couple?

Above all, you two get to decide.

Benefits of Renewing Your Vows

Statistics say that a wedding can often turn into a day your parents wanted for you–and not about you or your significant other. A vow renewal ceremony gives you and your love the opportunity to make it all about you without the added pressures of loved ones. 

As you have grown together over the years, you gain a stronger understanding on what values and goals are of common importance. 

You may have made some sacrifices on your wedding day to appease others, however a Vow Renewal is a new opportunity to celebrate your love and commit to one another on your own terms.

Another added benefit is having your children be a part of the ceremony this go around, and creating that foundation for your children to see what a GREAT marriage looks like.renew-your-vows-las-vegas

US HOLIDAYS
As a Las Vegas destination wedding location company, it makes sense for us to share US specific holiday dates.

best wedding dates 2023 and 2024


Though it’s not recommended to have your wedding on an actual holiday (due to various reasons like family and friends being unavailable to attend),  it’s a good idea for it to fall on the day before or the day after a big holiday. Because most of your guests will have extra days off work to attend.


Three day weekends are some of the best days to get married such as, Labor Day Weekend or Memorial Day Weekend, because your friends and family will most likely have Monday off to recuperate.

Lucky Wedding Dates

Lucky dates observed in eastern ancient Chinese and Hindu traditions are dates when nothing is inauspicious, everything is in balance and these are some of the luckiest dates to join as one.

These lucky or “promising” wedding dates are different for every couple throughout every year, and finding your auspicious dates for 2023 through 2025 is simple

In Chinese culture the number eight symbolizes success and prosperity. The ideal date for a wedding around this philosophy is August 8th, 2023-2025. (08-08-23, 08-08-24, 08-08-25)

The double eight is said to be extremely lucky for a couple’s first day as life-long partners!

Wedding Dates to Consider

Wedding Planning | Best and Worse Wedding Dates for 2021 & 2022 | 2021 & 2022 Lucky Wedding DatesDon’t care about the date or maybe you are looking for the best wedding deals. Weddings from Sunday through Thursday, aka “Weekday Weddings”, are an excellent option for couples that are flexible with their date or want to have a week’s worth of wedding events.

Why to Consider a Weekday Wedding

  1. More Availability – Many 2020 weddings that were postponed due to COVID have already been rescheduled. Couples seeking a weekend wedding in 2021 may have issues finding a Friday or Saturday open in their desired wedding venue since many couples have already re-booked their wedding dates.
  2. Don’t have to settle – If you are set on having a Friday or Saturday ceremony, your dream wedding venue may not be available. You may have to find a wedding venue you aren’t crazy about to get married during a weekend. You may want to reconsider a Thursday wedding date so that you can have your dream wedding location.
  3. Wedding deals happen during the weekday – Did you know, to help fill in slower days, wedding venues offer discounts or promos? Well, if you didn’t know – they do! In some cases, you could save big bucks getting married during the week.
  4. Save on travel – If you are having a destination wedding or your wedding guests need to travel, hotel and flight rates might be cheaper during the week.
  5. More time to with your loved ones – You can make the entire week all about you! You will be saving money on travel and getting wedding deals with your wedding venue. You will have extra money to have a “welcome dinner”, “farewell brunch”, or any other wedding gatherings.

 

Best Month to Get Married

Best Month to Get Married In | Best and Worse Wedding Dates for 2021 & 2022 | 2021 & 2022 Lucky Wedding DatesIf you are having trouble finding an available date or don’t care about the wedding date, consider looking at months to get married in. According to Wedding Wire, May, September, and October are the most popular months to say “I do”.  Summer and Winter have the most extreme temperatures, which is why many couples are selecting Spring or Fall months for their weddings.

Chapel of the Flowers is located in Las Vegas, NV. The “Wedding Capital of the World”. Many couples for years have been coming to Vegas to “tie the knot”. There are so many options for wedding locations in Las Vegas, from a romantic Valley of Fire wedding to a simple chapel ceremony to all-inclusive wedding packages with reception, with favorable wedding weather all year long.

 

Best Months to Get Married in Vegas

Las Vegas Weddings | Best and Worse Wedding Dates for 2021 & 2022 | 2021 & 2022 Lucky Wedding DatesIf you are considering a Las Vegas wedding, consider which month works best with your wedding theme. Many people think Las Vegas is always hot, but you would be surprised how cold Vegas can get.

  • Spring (March – Mid May): Great weather, can be rainy at times. Everything is blooming and beautiful.
  • Summer (Late May-August): Summertime and Summer vacation! Very hot but great for couples that enjoy the pool and that party atmosphere. There are also lots of events and festivals that get scheduled during the Summer months in Las Vegas.
  • Fall (September – November): Best weather for weddings! It starts to get cooler from the hot summer: crisp air and beautiful sunsets.
  • Winter (December – February): Cold and a little rainy, but nothing too bad (it is the desert, and we don’t get a ton of rain). Less busy on the Strip and great rates for wedding packages (Winter months are considered off-season dates).

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Las Vegas Wedding

Congratulations to Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, on their intimate Las Vegas Wedding–from all of us at Chapel of the Flowers!



Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have officially tied the knot in the wedding capital of the world: Las Vegas, Nevada.

Lopez confirmed their intimate Las Vegas wedding in her personal newsletter Sunday, ending the letter with a new name: Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.


A Quick Snippet From Lopez’s Newsletter:

“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,” Jennifer shared.

“Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world,” Lopez wrote. “We barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight. They graciously stayed open late a few minutes, let us take pictures in a pink Cadillac convertible, evidently once used by the king himself (but if we wanted Elvis himself to show, that cost extra and he was in bed).”

Lopez shared that she wore a dress from an old movie and Affleck wore a jacket from his closet.

“We read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives,” she wrote. 

Jennifer and Ben’s Love Story:

The Bennifer love story is one that’s been more than 20 years in the making. The couple originally met on the set of the rom-com “Gigli,” where they played criminals on a job together that led to a real-life friendship.

By November 2002, they had gotten engaged, but postponed their wedding in September 2003 due to “the excessive media attention” surrounding their wedding.

Unfortunately, they never shared their vows, but instead the postponement led to the couple officially calling off their engagement in January 2004.

Never say “never”, because after 17 years, even with other marriages, and children from those marriages, they eventually ended up right where they started all those years ago.

Lopez Speaks About The Proposal:

Affleck proposed to Lopez again in April of 2022 while she was soaking in a bubble bath.

“I was taken totally off guard and just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying hard to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again, I was quite literally speechless and he said, ‘is that a yes?’ I said YES of course that’s a YES,” she wrote in her newsletter.

What an incredible moment, that must’ve been for the two of them…to have found true love in such a familiar place.

You know what they say, “timing is everything”, and it proves to ring true for Mr. and Mrs. Affleck too.


Lopez Shares About Their Vegas Wedding Experience:

“In the end it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined.” Lopez wrote, in her recent newsletter.

We at Chapel of the Flowers couldn’t agree more!

An elopement to Vegas is the perfect remedy for the stress and anxiety that comes with the excessive media attention that actually got in the way of their first engagement/hopeful wedding.

With our all inclusive Las Vegas wedding packages, you won’t need to worry about a thing! Let us help you to create the perfect Vegas Wedding for you and the one you can’t wait to spend the rest of your life with.

Cheers to Jennifer and Ben on their unique love story, we wish you both everlasting happiness.

And thank you for sharing why Las Vegas is the wedding capital of the world, and what makes Las Vegas the BEST PLACE to celebrate your love.

Because in Las Vegas you can create whatever you want for your special day from the BIG GRAND WEDDING to the INTIMATE MICRO WEDDING–the possibilities are endless, and the best part is you are able to get a complete honeymoon experience + you don’t have to worry about entertaining your guests after you walk down the aisle–they have so much they can do too!

Come to celebrate your love in Las Vegas, you like JLO, won’t regret it!
