You've been together for a year. This is an important milestone.

There are lots of ways to spend a first anniversary and romance is the theme of the day.

Back to the Beginning

Arrange a liaison at the place you first met. It will be a few hours full of memories of beginnings and the journey so far. You can be confident here, since you're in familiar surroundings. If it's a private or quiet place like a restaurant or cafe then you can arrange for candles, music and a special meal. If it's busy or noisy, like a sports venue or cinema, then arrange a secluded corner or book two seats together. Make sure that no matter how busy it is, you two can gaze into each others' eyes and have a special moment together.


If it's your first wedding anniversary then this is the paper anniversary. Take out an ad in the local newspaper telling the world about the happy day. Use it to tell your partner where and when your celebration will be. Don't make it obvious, use clues and that are special to the two of you to make sure that she will be able to understand them. This is a good way of putting a twist on the candlelit dinner for two. Just make sure you make all the necessary reservations. Meet at a place that you know she will like, the decor, the food, the service, these are all important to her. Arrange for music at your table, and, finally, write her a letter on special paper describing how you feel about her and have the server deliver it with dessert.

The Great Outdoors

A picnic is an opportunity for the two of you to get away from it all. Take paper cups and plates (especially if it's your first wedding anniversary). If you're expecting fair weather then keep it outside, but if it's a winter first anniversary, stay in the car, take flasks of hot drinks and share the back seat.

All Aboard!

There are romantic train journeys all over the world. You can make a holiday of your first anniversary and take your partner on a train ride he'll never forget. You could choose a familiar route to a destination you know, reserving two seats and having a picnic in the carriage. Or travel through new and breathtaking scenery at home or abroad. It's the perfect way to mark your journey so far and acknowledge the road, or the track, ahead.


A bungee jump for two will get your hearts racing with anticipation, excitement and passion. The two of you will be bound together before you hurtle toward the Earth wrapped in each others arms. Then you will be borne aloft by the bungee cord and you will be sailing into your future together.
