    Lol nope. I'll be 9 months pregnant by then. Haha.

    But we wouldn't anyway. We're not big party people. Though it would be fun. =]

    Actually come to think of it, that's probably around the time of my baby shower SOOO there will be some party planning. ;]

    We haven't gotten to the wedding yet, but there is no way I would plan one, I've already asked enough of my friends and family.

    Paper theme. Although I plan on spending my 1st anniversary with my husband and not organizing a party.

    I agree with Glenn about friends and family already giving enough. Actually what we did was invited our wedding party and immediate family over for a thank you party, so they could watch the DVD and see pics of wedding and our honeymoon. We stressed no gifts, that this was about them. We made ribs and wings, a full course meal... AND had an OPEN BAR !! We supplied all the booze, buying everything any one of them drank! We had a great time -- this was the weekend before our actual one year because my husband had already planned a long weekend away or our anniversary. Our Theme? Thanks for being in our wedding!

    Nope, because we are planning to go to the States for the first time for our honeymoon, and we are delaying it until our 1 year anniversary.

    Thanks for all the input ladies!!!

    The ONLY REASON we are having a party is because we had a destination wedding with only immediate family and our closest friends. We did not send out invites, wedding announcements or anything like that. We had A LOT going on after we got married like moving and other more important things so we opted out of a reception at the time. I thanked alllll the people that helped and participated in our wedding by buying gifts for everyone. We aren't having this party for gifts, I haven't even thought about gift giving for an anniversary party. All we want to do is celebrate our happiness with family that didn't make it to the wedding and that's mostly all our family. We only had 2 or 3 immediate family members that went with us. And we aren't asking for anything from anybody except to share in our joy!!!!

    2011 Mrs. Brown-I think a get together would be nice! No presents necessary, just the company of those you love to share a special time with you. I like that. Make it clear to your guests that there will be no presents required, just their presence is desired. Smiley smile You don't necessarily need to have it on your anniversary, either. Here's a link about the wedding anniversary themes by year. Good luck and happy planning!

    We didn't have a party for our 1 year anniversary. We holed ourselves up in a cabin for the weekend.

    We had our wedding in Gatlinburg TN, so we held ourselves up in our honeymoon cabin for 5 days!!! LOL!!! Guess we are doing the opposite of that for our 1st year anniversary. LOL!!

    I am helping to plan my BF wedding which will be 8 days before my 1 year anniversary so that will probably be enough party for one month ... But I don't think its asking to much of family and friends to come enjoy a party if thats what you want to do...Most ppl don't give gifts on anniversaries thats a time for you to give gifts to each other... at least thats the way i've always seen it... We take my parents out to dinner for theirs but thats just because they are our parents I've never given my sister an anniversary gift other than a card and a hug.

    That's EXACTLY how I see it Victoria. We didn't have our family and friends come together for a reception, so I don't think we will be asking too much of them to come help us celebrate our 1st year anniversary.

    I think you should do it, if your family is anything like mine they make up reasons for a party anyway... I think celebrating your one year would be an excellent (and real) reason for a good party!

    I haen't had a wedding yet but for my family, any reason is a good reason to throw a party! I love to just invie family & friends over for stuff like this b.c it doesnt have to be about getting presants or making people watch your wedding video it cn just be about your family and the people who helped bring you together!
