First anniversary ideas: 5 romantic ways to celebrate
It seems like just yesterday that you said a dreamy I do to your life partner and cut a beautiful three-tiered wedding cake. But almost a whole year has flown by since - and you are now looking for a wonderful way to celebrate your very first wedding anniversary!
Traditionally, paper gifts such as paper lanterns, notebooks, or photo prints are given on the first wedding anniversary, to remind us of the fragile and modest beginnings of marriage. While this notion is still loved by many across the world, there’s nothing wrong with breaking tradition by celebrating your first wedding anniversary with a memorable experience instead.
To help you enjoy and remember this special occasion for years to come, we share five unique ways you can celebrate with the one you love!
1. Relive the moment
Find yourself wishing that you can relive the most romantic day of your life so far? Whilst technological advancements are unable to support time travel yet, you can always revisit the place where you exchanged vows or said yes as they got down on one knee. Or, delight your senses whilst bringing yourself back to the sumptuous feast at the wedding by visiting the restaurant and ordering food items that were served at the ceremony.
You can even indulge in desserts and end the day on a sweet note too. Cake shops in Singapore like ours at Zee & Elle's, carry a wide range of cakes that can help you express your love for each other on your wedding anniversary. From fresh cream cakes with light and citrusy flavours to elaborately decorated ones, you'll surely find one to satisfy your palate.
2. Spend The Night In
If going out is not something that both of you like, then staying in is another way to make this anniversary a night to remember. We’re not talking about the usual night in with chips and wine. Instead, think along the lines of luxurious and special. For instance, as you ditch your usual takeout options and cook your favourite meal together, light up a few candles at the dining table as well as turn on your favourite tunes to groove to.
Besides making a home-cooked meal, you can also prepare desserts as a sweet gesture to end the evening. Baking a cake from scratch may seem like a daunting task but fret not, as we’ve got you covered with our delectable range of desserts. Not only do we offer fresh cream cakes, but we also have other delightfully sweet treats like our all-new Summertime Cheesecakes, tarts, and brownies.
Simply pre order your cake order online from our website and be rest assured the delivery will be in time for your celebration.
3. Get Glam For Glamping
If you love the idea of being one with nature, minus the need to rough it out, then you can opt for the next romantic thing to do in Singapore: glamping. Glamping is just like camping, however, you’ll get to enjoy added luxury, style, and fun with elements like spacious tipis and fairy lights. Even if you’re not looking to spend the entire night outdoors, you can always take some time to watch the stars under the beautiful night sky, as you and your loved one reminisce about your relationship journey.
4. Get Crafty
Aside from spending the night out or going glamping, you can always get crafty by going for workshops together. For instance, you can learn how to make your own rings at a jewellery-making workshop, mugs at a pottery class, or even paint a portrait of each other at an art cafe in Singapore.
5. Plan A Picnic
Going on a picnic with your partner can be quite the romantic occasion. The key is to find the perfect spot and pack the right foods. Every couple, especially on their wedding anniversary, deserves something special to dine on during a date. Besides the usual sushi rolls and pizza, you can level up this date idea by assembling a charcuterie board or concoct a refreshing alcoholic spritz. For desserts, we recommend swapping ice cream out for other confectionaries such as cupcakes or even exquisitely decorated nature-inspired fresh cream cakes.
Baked and decorated using seasonal fruits, florals, and foliage, the Babybreath Thyme Gold Cake is one of our bestselling nature-inspired cakes. The best thing about this cake is that you can decide the flavour of the cake from a selection of six delectable flavours, and customise it with a special message for your loved one.
Whether you’re married for a year or 20, wedding anniversaries should be celebrated to commemorate the milestone of your relationship - and there’s no better way to do it than with cake. Visit our online cake store for a wide selection of fresh cream cakes.
