  • Go back to the first place you met. Or the area you met. Have a nice dinner or picnic or something.

  • I don't know if you would find it romantic, but since it is the "paper" anniversary I got DH and I tickets to a ballgame. We live in Detroit and went to a Tigers game the day we were engaged (he proposed that evening, NOT at the game). It was pretty cool.

  • For our paper anniversary we wrote each other love letters. I still have the one he wrote me, and I take it out and read it when we've been fighting. Simple but romantic, and lasts for years!

  • People might look at you funny if you have a picnic in the middle of Kmart! LOL

    You could also do this: sit down together and write down your goals that you want completed by a certain day like 10yrs or 15yrs. Goals for you, your family or whatever. Then mail them to yourselves and hang on to them. Don't open them til that anniversary (10yr or 15yr.)

    I saw that in a show, i though it was super cute and a really good idea.

  • My DH just got back from deployment when we got married... so going back to GA isn't somethin we can do right now, but it's a good idea! I have no clue where my wedding dress is tho...
