After 50 years of marriage, your loved ones deserve a party that they will always remember. This is a big milestone and an important occasion. Whether you are their children planning the perfect party or friends trying to celebrate the love of a happy couple, following this planning list can ensure that your party is memorable for all the right reasons.
Traditionally, gold is used as the 50th wedding anniversary symbol. If you choose to go traditional, this gives you an easy to add element to set the stage. Incorporate gold into your table settings, 50th wedding anniversary invitations and party decorations with the following:
While gold is traditionally used, there is really no right or wrong way to set the stage for an anniversary party, as long as the focus is on the couple and their marriage. Regardless of what color you choose, use photos and elements of their relationship to celebrate them.
When planning the music for the party, either use music the couple prefers or music from the decade or year they were married.
For a fun memory book, ask guests in advance to submit how they met the couple and their favorite memories of them together.
As the host, you should have some special words to say about the couple, but you can also encourage a toast to the guests of honor by anyone that wants to speak about their happy memories with them.
When choosing the menu, choose items they served on their first date or on their wedding day. If this isn’t possible, try using a favorite meal the couple shares now.
Your goal is to create a party that they will remember after 50 happy years together. As long as the party revolves around the things that are important to them, then you have succeeded as host.
"perfect choice for complimenting the style of any wedding-as mother of groom planning rehearsal dinner this provided simple elegance that is very classic. We used both front and back of the invite-front for basic invite information and back for extra details. Paper and printing were top quality as we expected from this company. Front photo of the couple looked amazing! Shipping was right on time as promised. You can't go wrong with this design and style."
"The invitation turned out prettier than I imagined. The text and colors were amazing. The gold shimmer envelopes were the perfect touch - high quality/rich looking."
"I got these to go with my "earthy leaves" invitation suite. There were only 4 color options listed, so I figured they only came in those colors, so I had just picked black. But when my digital proof came back, they had given me two other options that went with my 'rich red' color scheme. I was not expecting to be offered other color options, and loved the liberty and assumption the designer took in offering me different colors that went with my invites instead of black. Needless to say, I was impressed and very happy with this product and the service and the attention to detail that the designer took."
"We were so pleased with the results of our rehearsal dinner invitations. They turned out so beautiful and we have been spreading the word that our friends should use Wedding Paper Divas for their invitations."
"I was extremely pleased with this card and the delivery from Wedding Paper Divas. Based on my geographic location, it arrived in one day with standard shipping so I will definitely order again. I did not use the template of information provided, and was a little nervous that it wouldn't turn-out accurately, but it did!"
