Unique Wedding Anniversary Party Ideas - The Old-lywed Game
A place to share your unique wedding anniversary party ideas and stories from anniversary parties you have attended. Kate shares a great idea for a 50th wedding anniversary party (or another significant year) with The Wedding Anniversary Site readers.
My brother came up with this. We did it just for the couple. We made it all multiple choice questions, to make it easier on the older folks and less stressful, and asked each of them for the answers in advance, too, so that the correct answer would be in the choices.
We asked all questions related to their 50 years, and also avoided anything embarrassing or inappropriate to the occasion (no making whoppie questions; their six children were enough attestment to that! LOL) Also, running the questions by them first made sure that all questions would be appropriate for the occasion, and in their eyes. Brother also put on a tacky plaid jacket, like the game show host did.
Some questions: (all phrased in the traditional newlywed style of What will your husband say...what will your wife say....)
What was your favorite wedding gift? (both agreed it was Aunt Betty's electric coffee percolator. So we put the multiple choice answers as: 1. Revere Ware (Lots of great meals over the years cooked in that!) 2. Electric carving knife (Makes a great noise carving that Thanksgiving turkey) and 3. electric coffee percolator
(The couple has traveled to all 50 States) If your early marriage could be described with the slogan from one of the states, what would it be? 1. NJ & You: perfect together, 2. The city that never sleeps (NYC) 3. possibilities...endless (Nebraska).
A question related to music...(wedding dance song)....question about the wedding day....you can incorporate "funny" things in the answers, such as "How would your husband describe how he felt when he saw you walking up the aisle? 1. Completely Confident: if Eddie Fisher and Elizabeth Taylor can make it work, we certainly can (those two were still married at the time of the couple's wedding) 2. usual jitters, nothing extraordinary 3. Happy and excited that this is happening!
Thank you!Thanks Kate for sharing this unique wedding anniversary party idea.
