If every wedding anniversary is a milestone, then a 50th wedding anniversary must be a monument and an example for other couples. Finding 50th anniversary party ideas is not tough, here are a few themes to help you figure out the perfect way to throw a 50th wedding anniversary party.
Recreate the time that they were married in. If this means hiring a big band, or finding a hippie band or an Elvis impersonator, then do it! You can build on this to help create the perfect atmosphere that will take the happy couple back to the time that they fell in love and were married.
Throw a luau. Hawaii is the dream destination for most couples, so why not take your party guests for a short trip there by having a huge outdoor barbecue complete with leis, hula dancing, grass skirts, beach wear, coconut drinks with little umbrellas, and plenty of fun games to keep your guests busy.
Renew their vows. Vow renewal is a special decision for any couple celebrating their 50th anniversary and so be sure to get their permission before planning this celebration. Hiring a church or recreating their first wedding ceremony in your home or hired venue is a great way to celebrate. Your local bakery can more than likely recreate the original cake with the help of a few photographs.
After choosing a theme, you should begin putting together a guest list and choosing invitations. A then-and-now photo anniversary invitation is a good idea with a wedding photo and a recent photo of the couple. This is a party that celebrates a span of 50 years, so expect the guest list to be large unless you are trimming it down to just family and friends. Ask the couple what they would like, or if you are throwing a surprise party fall back on your knowledge of what the couple has preferred in the past.
Above all, remember that when planning a 50th anniversary party, you want to create a memory that lasts not just for a few days or years, but one that will carry on for the next 50 years.
Customer reviews 50th Wedding Anniversary Party Invitations
April 23, 2015Loved it!
"I ordered this for my mom and dad's 50th wedding anniversary party. The invitation was absolutely beautiful. Could not have asked for better. Thank you!"
April 19, 2015Awesome card
"Everyone who received this invitation commented on what a great card it was. The photo, lettering and color was excellent. I would recommend Wedding Paper Divas to anyone who wants a quality, fair priced invitation. I definitely will recommend them to my friends."
October 28, 2014Wonderful design work
"I wanted to customize this product so it would look like the rest of our wedding stationary that we designed ourselves and the designer was super accommodating and very helpful. The whole process was super efficient and I would highly recommend Wedding Paper Divas even if the design isn't 100% what you were wanting. The only downside is the fact that you have to have their logo on the backside of the card. I wish you could pay more for the option to remove it."

"Ordered these for our 10 year anniversary dinner. The orange is perfect & look the same as it does in the photo. Love it & so did our guests."
August 21, 2014Perfect for 50th Anniversary Party
"I rarely post reviews, but had to for this invitation because it turned out beautifully. We are throwing a surprise 50th for my in-laws and this is the perfect combo of retro/sophistication. They imported the (50 year old) photo into the invite with excellent quality. We used the pearl white shimmer paper/rounded edges design and it looked very elegant. Also, the staff was extremely helpful when we called for assistance and changed our minds a few times. And the gilded gold envelopes match perfectly. Well worth the very reasonable price!"
