It is a well known saying that diamonds are forever. When married couples complete 60 years of their wedded life, it is known as a diamond jubilee. The day became more prominent, when Queen Victoria celebrated her 60th year of marriage. Sixty years of togetherness is a great achievement! ‘A diamond jubilee can be celebrated in a number of interesting ways.’
How to Celebrate 60th Wedding Anniversary
Amaze Your Spouse with Imaginative Gifts
A sparkling jewelry studded with a diamond is a popular gift. It can be gift wrapped with a paper that has small glittery diamonds. Traditionally, a bouquet of white flowers is appreciated more. Be creative and gift unique and unusual gifts. As a couple, you have known each other for a long period of time.
Being your better half, it’s imperative to gift them something which they will remember throughout the coming years. It would be fairly easy to gauge your spouse’s likes and dislikes. Try to rekindle their romance by gifting them a customized set of greeting cards or personalized centerpieces. Surprise the couple; make a prior booking for them at a picturesque and serene resort. Booking appointments for two with a popular masseur is also a healthy and a great gifting option.
Relive the Special Day Again
Nothing can be better than reliving the moment again. Tie the knot, plan the event meticulously and invite some friends for a lavish get together. It’s never too late to exchange vows with the man/woman of your dreams. You have spent 60 years together and what can add an exuberant charm to the special bond of love.
Your grandchildren can add a special zing to the event by performing dance numbers on your favorite songs. Plan the event in advance and let your friends, family and dear ones know that you guys are truly made for each other. What will complete the works is a proper marriage event. Decorate the nearest chapel as you walk down the aisle with your bridesmaids in front and your grandchildren dancing in front of you.
Arrange a Family Get-Together
If a couple is celebrating a diamond jubilee, it is rest assured that the entire family and close friends will be present. Otherwise, take initiative and try to gather everyone for the occasion. Elderly people love and enjoy the company of their grandchildren.
More often than not, such family get-togethers tend to strengthen the bond between family members. Create a specially edited DVD of their wedding day. Tune the movie with their favorite songs and fuse some famous movie dialogues into them. Everyone will love it. Best of all, the couple will relive that special day again!
Plan a Play to Entertain Everyone
The first moment when you lay eyes on your spouse, you knew it deep inside that he/she is the one. Your children and grandchildren can plan an entertaining play, relaying the scene of how the journey began. Delve into the beginning as you try and enact the whole idea of the harmonious bonding between you and your spouse. An ideal celebration for the 60th Anniversary.
Celebrate it Outdoors
Celebrating the diamond jubilee outdoors is a great idea. A break from the daily life routine would be warmly welcomed. A proper and effective planning is the order of the day. There are professional party planners, who ensure that the occasion is graced with elegance. Create a sample invitation and adorn it with glitter and rhinestones.
Get it printed from a good printing agency. You can host the party at a chic restaurant, which has ample dining area or maybe rent a hall in an event center. Select innovative silverware and trendily folded napkins. This will add great style to the event.
Select the menu according to the couple; after all, it is their big day. Arrange for a grand anniversary cake. Get it done specially from a local baker. The couple will bless you and thank you for all your efforts. You will bask in all that appreciation and gratitude!
Spend Time with The Couple
Everything said and done, diamond jewelery is elegant while expensive presents are great. But at their age, spending time with them is essential. Nothing can beat the value of spending time with your elders, especially, when they are at an age where loneliness can set in fairly quickly.
Go on; make them feel that every day is a diamond jubilee! Call them frequently or delight them with a surprise visit. Elders impart a lot of practical wisdom to children by narrating stories and real life incidents. Your kids will learn a lot. With a little support and care, they are bound to live happily till a platinum/golden anniversary.
