Wedding Anniversary Party Decor Ideas
Wedding Theme Re-Creation
Remembering and honoring your wedding day is a great way to celebrate your anniversary. Include pictures or mementos from your wedding day and then update them to match your current style. Some options could include using the same flowers in your centerpieces, decorating in the same color scheme, or anything else! Here at NOAH’S, our elegant rooms can easily be transformed to fit any theme or style, and our stunning ceiling decor options can take your big day to the next level.
Favorite Snacks Table
Pick some of your favorite things, lay them out on the table, and then label them for your guests to enjoy! This could include “His Favorite Candy Bar,” “Her Favorite Late Night Snack,” “Our Favorite Popcorn,” or tons of other delicious treats! Whether you opt for a full dinner or not, this can be a fun way to satisfy people’s sweet and savory cravings throughout the night. Plus, this wedding anniversary party idea lets you enjoy a spread of your favorite things, so it’s a win-win.
Year By Year Table Decor
Theme your tables around years or periods of your marriage. Include pictures of your family from that year as well as a description of some of the biggest events from that time. For example, you could say something like “We bought our first house,” or “We went on vacation to Hawaii.” Whatever was impactful, big or small, share it with your guests!
A Slideshow or Video
There are few things sweeter than seeing a couple fall deeper in love over time. A video presentation or slideshow is the perfect way to showcase this. These can be a mix of posed photos and candid snapshots of your life together. If you want to take it a step further, hire a videographer to film some beautiful video of the two of you together and edit your memories with professional polish and skill.

Wedding Anniversary Party Entertainment Ideas
A Vow Renewal
What better time to renew your vows than at an anniversary celebration? Whether you choose to go super formal with a wedding party, gifts, and wedding attire, or simply choose to surprise your guests by renewing your vows at the party, we can make it easy! Our beautiful Ceremony Room or transformable Main Hall are both perfect for another walk down the aisle. On the other hand, you can surprise guests by elevating your ceremony on the rising stage in the Main Hall for everyone to see. No matter what fits your style, we would love to help make it happen!
The Shoe Game
This hilarious and easy game is a big trend at weddings right now, and could be even more fun at an anniversary party! Essentially, the couple exchanges one of each shoe with each other and sits back to back. Someone reads off a list of questions, such as “Who hogs the remote most often?” or “Who takes the longest to wake up in the mornings?” and the couple raises the shoe of the person who they think fits that description. It’s a super fun and playful way for guests to get to know the couple better and share some laughs.
Who says toasts have to be relegated to weddings? Speeches from children, friends, family members, and other loved ones is a poignant way to spread the love amongst all of the attendees.
This is a particularly sweet idea for a wedding anniversary party celebrating a high number of years of marriage, like 20 or even 40 or more. Simply leave notecards and pens at the tables and a big jar that says “Marriage Advice Questions” somewhere in the room. Encourage guests to write their questions for the couple. Later in the evening, the couple or a close friend can select a few to answer. The questions can range from fun and simple to honest and thoughtful, and can thus set the perfect tone for this wonderful celebration of love.
A wedding anniversary party is the perfect way to honor your love story with the most important people in your life, and these ideas make it easy to pull off a beautiful and fun celebration. Here at NOAH’S, we can make it a night that you’ll never forget with our elegant rooms and decor options. Give us a call today to learn more!
