4 Essentials for Planning a 50th Wedding Anniversary Party
The 50th wedding anniversary is often thought of as the golden anniversary. When a couple makes it to this point in their marriage, it is a big deal and is often celebrated. If you have to plan a 50th wedding party, you need to make sure all of the essentials are included.
Finding the perfect 50th wedding invitations are a must if you are in charge of the planning. Wedding Paper Divas offers a variety of invitation options you are able to customize to best fit your needs. For a 50th anniversary, you may want to choose an invitation in gold. Otherwise, pick an invitation
that matches with the theme or color scheme of your party.
Picking the location of your gathering is an imperative part of the planning. You have a lot of options. You can personalize the gathering by having it someplace that means a lot to the couple, such as where they got married, their favorite restaurant or their house. Other options include:
- A church hall
- Country club banquet room
- Shelter at a local park
- Cellar at a winery or vineyard
Realistically, your options are almost endless, but you should try to pick a venue that will accommodate your guests.
3. Food and Drink
No party would be complete without some food and drink. You should decide early on whether you will have snacks or a full meal. Most 50th wedding anniversary parties at least have a fancy cake. Your venue may dictate what you are able to serve. For example, if you are at a restaurant, you will likely have to serve their food. At a park, you may be able to bring in a caterer or homemade food.
The decorations you choose should go with the rest of your party. If you are sticking with the classic gold-theme, consider adding splashes of gold through the centerpieces and streamers. Otherwise, you can choose any color and any theme to best customize the party for the happy couple. Are the husband and wife avid fans of a baseball team? Incorporate their colors into the party to make it more unique.
Customer reviews 50th Wedding Invitations
July 14, 2015Elegant and classy
"I am so happy with my invitations. The quality of the paper is great...weighty and perfectly textured. The design is so elegant. The only thing I would say is that they are smaller than I expected but I was reading that's that is a good thing as it saves on postage! Service was also prompt and a pleasant experience."

"This invitation was exactly what we were looking for! It has our wedding colors on it. I love how you can personalize it with whatever font you like. We ordered it on the shimmery paper and loved the turnout. Can't wait to get them ready and send them out! Thank you Wedding Paper Divas! They are beautiful."
June 6, 2015Wonderful
"I really liked this design, but I was nervous that it would be hard to communicate my tweaks without meeting someone in person. I made a couple of tweaks, and the team was able to complete all of them and they made the product even better than I was thinking. Really easy process and the took minimal effort on my end!"
June 2, 2015Elegant Card
"The paper was nice, but not super thick (which is what we wanted). The printing looks very nice. The font is on the smaller side, but it was exactly what we expected. Also you are able to adjust the text size if you ask the designer."

"This is a beautiful card. The branch theme wraps around to the back. The font used is pretty and formal, but not hard to read."
