Celebrating Your Anniversary - Ideas For A Romantic Getaway

Feb 25, 2008
An anniversary is the celebration of being with the one you love for one more year. Some people count the months rather than the years, but anniversaries are usually about a certain number of years that two people have been married.

An anniversary gives you a very good opportunity to plan a romantic getaway for you and your significant other. It might be a special day out or a romantic weekend away, depending on your budget and how much time away you are able to take. You might even opt for a long relaxing week in the sun if that is possible for both of you.

Going away from the boring chores of daily life can be a great incentive. Marriage is not the proverbial rose garden. It involves two individuals making an effort to create a happy home life. Add kids to the mix and suddenly your days are filled with school activities, homework, housework and laundry. Sometimes those romantic getaway vacation spots seem so far away and impossible to reach.

A romantic and relaxing anniversary getaway is always a happy event, and since you will be the one accompanying your spouse, you win as well. If you, like many newlyweds, had to watch your budget on your honeymoon, you may want to consider splurging this time around, and having that second honeymoon that you have always wanted.

You could take a cruise or visit a city neither of you has been before. You could even take a long weekend or a week away and visit somewhere romantic and sunny. When you get home, you can regale your friends and acquaintances with stories about your second honeymoon and all the wonderful things you saw and did.

Another good idea is to renew your wedding vows during your romantic anniversary getaway. You can discuss this with your spouse or even keep it a secret until the last moment! Plenty of inns and resorts offer getaway packages which include the use of their chapel and a wedding cake and other perks. Some might even include a horse-drawn carriage in the wedding vow renewal package. This would definitely make your anniversary getaway even more special.

Another good idea for your perfect anniversary trip is to return to the place where you had your first date. This is a great way of reminiscing about how you met and what you thought of one another in the early days.

Enjoy whatever romantic anniversary getaway that works for you and your spouse. The most important thing is to spend time together, and any top hotel that offers romantic getaways will most likely cater to all your wishes.
