What did you do for your first wedding anniversary?

My first anniversary is coming up and my parents will have our daughter for the weekend. I want to do something fun and special that doesn't cost a whole lot. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated!

  • For our honeymoon we went canooing, that was fun and not too expensive, and for our anniversary we just went out to a nice dinner, spent some time together and bought new wedding bands (the first set were only temporary bc we didn't have a lot of money at the time) :)

  • We had just moved into our first house the weekend before and was 8 months pregnant. We just went out to eat and enjoyed being in our new house.

    We like to have someone watch the kids for the weekend and enjoy a nice quite home and being able to leave the house when we want. We have done that for the last 4 yrs and love it.

  • How about a romantic dinner for two? Eat what you had at your wedding reception, dance to the music that played, and relive that special day!!

    We went to NYC, where we met 3 years prior (married on the same date 2 years later.) We stayed at the same hotel, and recreated our steps from that night. It was wonderful recreating the old memory and making new ones!

  • We took a weekend trip to Rockport MA. It was great. But that was before kids. I brought the top of our cake in a cooler and I ate that. My husband wouldn't touch it.

  • We went to Olive Garden, my parents watched the kids :) I was 8 months pregnant.. so I didn't feel like doing a whole lot.
