12 Ways to Celebrate Saying “I Do” All Over Again
You said “I do” with the perfect ceremony. Your honeymoon was bliss and you’ve let everyone know you tied the knot. But after one, five, 10 or more years, you might be ready to celebrate your love for each other all over again. Whether you’re planning a small gathering with close friends, a large party or a formal vow renewal, we’re sharing a few ways to make your anniversary celebration extra memorable.
1. We Still Do Cake Topper ($20): What’s a party without cake? This “We Still Do” cake topper is chic and simple, and you can even order it in a custom color.
2. Vintage Photo Invites ($20+): Dig up those old photos for a sweet invite that’ll make all of your guests smile. We love how the confetti and mix of fonts add a modern touch.
5. DIY Photo Table Runner: We’re betting that you’ve racked up A LOT of photos over the past few years, so put them to good use and add them to your tablescape. With this on your table, reminiscing about all those good memories will be a cinch. (via Bella the Blog)
8. Photo Vases: Seriously, there are so many ways to repurpose those wedding and engagement photos. If you want to go full-on sentimental, fill up these vases with the same flowers you used in your bouquets. (via Brit + Co)
How do you celebrate your anniversary? Let us know in the comments!
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
