50th wedding anniversary is one of the most marked occasions in a couple’s life. And why wouldn’t it be? It’s the celebration of a long, beautiful, happy journey. Celebration of the legacy they have built, and the moments they spent together.
Fifty years is an incredible milestone for any relationship, and it definitely deserves an unforgettable celebration. Are you planning to throw your parents' golden anniversary party? Well, with so many things to take care of, it can definitely feel overwhelming and daunting. That’s precisely why we are here.
To save you some sanity, in this blog, we will share some tips that can help you get started on the right foot.
Decide A Date. Set The Venue.
Whether you are planning a grand affair or a small get together with your parents’ friends and family, the first step is to decide a date. Obviously, it’s best to throw a party on the actual anniversary date, but it’s always wise to have a word with the couple in advance so that all the arrangements can be done accordingly. If the couple has some other plans for their big day, you could consider a date close to the actual anniversary date.
Setting the date in advance is especially important. You need time for preparation, plus the invitees need to arrange for their travel, lodging, etc.
Once the date is finalised, consider the venue for the gathering.
Send Out Customised Invitations
Depending upon the budget, prepare a guest list for the party and send out customised invitations that do justice to the auspicious occasion. Since it’s your parents’ golden anniversary, make it special by adding a dash of gold and sending out golden chocolate bouquets with the invitation.
On the card, mention the event’s date, venue and theme. Also, list the date for the RSVP deadline so that the menu can be decided accordingly.
Plan Out Food & Drinks
Other than the music, food is the most important thing at a party that the guests talk about for days to come. So make sure you have different cuisines on the menu. Also, don’t forget to add amazing cocktails and drinks on the list. Based on the budget, you can also consider keeping it an open bar.
What’s more, order a cake covered with edible gold flakes for the couple so that they can celebrate their anniversary in style.
